New stretch target

To celebrate we have decided to release one Golden Ticket. 

One lucky pledger on our T-shirts will be entered into a prize draw to win a lifetime membership to The Wave Bristol including a surfing session every week. Any sessions not used will be donated to a local charity. To qualify you just need to pledge on any of our t-shirts. This is a reward not to be missed out on!

Having reached our initial target, we are now charging through with a week to go and hoping for even better things. Our plan is to pump these funds into the project to deliver more renewables, more social outcomes and ensure this project delivers and over-delivers on all the objectives that we envisaged. Your support continues to be a continued inspiration to us and together we are making something fun, beautiful and meaningful for the future. Thank you!

Amazing

 Thanks to all your support and eagerness to get involved, we have charged through our target with a week to go! The more we raise, the better we can be so please get involved and help us make waves of positive  change.

At The Wave Bristol our vision is to bring surfing and its many benefits to people of all ages, backgrounds and abilities.

We will do this by building a surfing lake powered by the latest wave-making technology. This will be set in beautiful gardens – spaces where people can relax and recoup, get back in touch with nature, play, learn and explore.  From a safe environment for beginners to learn, to a High Performance Surf Centre to help coach the surfing stars of the future, whatever your age or ability The Wave Bristol will be open to you.

We want this place to not only be brilliant fun, but to make a positive difference to the people around it and the environment it sits within. We have built sustainability on all levels into the DNA of our project and its these elements that really make us tick. 

We are raising the funds for a basic build but this project deserves to be much better than basic. The funds raised via our Crowdfunder campaign will go to support some specific elements of the project that mean a lot to us.

We will ring-fence membership and surfing session funds until all the construction finance is in place. If we don't raise it, we give it back to you. Simple.

The Making Waves Foundation

A percentage of money raised will go the The Making Waves Foundation, which is an independent Charitable Trust that has been set up to fund community projects and charities in the local area. When the site opens a percentage of annual profits will also go to the foundation and the Trustees will decide how this is spent.

Additional funds raised by the campaign will be going to push forward some of our plans to make the site as environmentally sustainable as possible. Our long term aim is to take it completely off-grid and these funds will help us move towards this target by building in more renewable technologies at the build stage of the project.
