It has been years in the making and now Bristol’s £25m inland surf lake is taking shape – as evidenced in this stunning timelapse video.

The Wave is due to open in November, when surfers of all abilities will be able to sample waves created by cutting-edge technology in the 200m lake on the 77-acre site in Easter Compton, north of Cribbs Causeway.
