With just under 3 months until the official opening of Surf Snowdonia in Dolgarrog, firefighters have been called to site this morning following a small fire at the UK’s first surfing lagoon. No one was injured in the fire, which has now been extinguished and it is thought it will not delay the opening of the most anticipated tourist attraction in Wales.
Although there is no official announcement as yet on the Surf Snowdonia website, they have issued a thank you to the North West Fire Service via Twitter after they made site arrival within minutes of the blaze being discovered. The fire is said to have started in a tower that will eventually contain some of the mechanical equipment for the facility.
In other news from Surf Snowdonia, prices to use the facility have been revealed and it is now possible to purchase vouchers, that in turn will give you first access to the site when it opens in July. Voucher holders will be given access to the booking system 24 hours before new customers and will be some of the first people to get to try out the state of the art complex. A 1 hour beginners lesson during peak times will cost £40, whilst five hours riding the wave for experienced surfers will set you back £170 during peak times.
You can keep up to date with all developments at Dolgarrog at the official Surf Snowdonia website and to book your early bird vouchers head over to the booking page here. Good luck to the Surf Snowdonia crew in the tidy up and we hope it doesn’t set you back. Feel free to leave comments below.
