Flood-risk and drainage support from Motion has helped to bring to fruition an inland surf destination in the west country.
Motion Director Richard Bettridge gave advice to the Lower Severn Internal Drainage Board during the project’s planning application phase. The amenity won the accolade for Cultural and Leisure Project in the 2020 British Construction Industry Awards. The inland surfing lake near Bristol provides safe and consistent waves which can be ridden by surfers of all abilities.
