Surf Snowdonia is the worlds first artificial wave lagoon for surfing. As well as surfing there's a crash and splash pool, soft play area, bar, restaurant and cafe. Definitely worth visiting if you are in the area.
This is the perfect place to learn or practice your advanced surfing skills. In a controlled environment a predictable wave is created every few minutes from around waist height at its highest point decreasing gradually at the sides and ends of the pool. At 300m in length you can surf a breaking wave for around 20 seconds (around 150m distance) and the waves gradually subside at the sides and ends of the lagoon which is where the learners surf.
If surfing isn't your thing then there's plenty more to keep you occupied. The splash and crash pool has an obstacle course and large "blob" - an inflated bag which a person can sit on one end whilst another jumps on to the other end launching them into the air. For younger visitors there's a soft play area and a bouncy castle. There's also a shop stocking a range of surfboards, wetsuits and clothing.
To end the day why not visit the onsite bar, restaurant or cafe? These open earlier and close later than the water based activities with service from 08:30am to 9pm

Mills were once a huge part of Welsh industry, but over the years the number still in use has declined. However, Trefriw is one of the few wool mills still in working use. Trefriw was originally a ‘pandy’ (fulling mill in English) and hand spun and woven cloth would be washed here. It used its position on the River Crafnant to drive the waterwheels and wash the wool.
