Nick Hounsfield, founder, The Wave

Nick battled against a series of challenges including a global pandemic and a stroke to finally see his vision become a reality. The centre is fast establishing itself as a key location in the South West.

Nick worked in healthcare for many years but has always had a passion for surfing.

He wanted to bring the sport to people of all ages, backgrounds and abilities through the development of an inland destination.

He raised £26 million through investment and secured site planning in 2014 for the extraordinary facility in South Gloucestershire. After years of planning The Wave Bristol was opened successfully in October 2019 amid global press and TV coverage.

The Wave London and other locations are now in early stages of development and will form part of The Wave destinations which will revolutionise the sport and bring the health and lifestyle benefits to millions of people across the world.

Nick is also chair of Surfing England and campaigns on the many issues affecting the sport including the dumping of sewage in our seas.

The networking lunch is being held on July 6th at the Bistro du Vin in the centre of Bristol, click here to grab your ticket.
