We've only got five minutes, so get ready for your Blue Peter adventure.

0:00:140:00:18

Catching the first wave of the day.

0:00:220:00:24

Breaking the surface of the water.

0:00:260:00:28

The freedom.

0:00:300:00:31

The ride.

0:00:320:00:34

Surfing - some say it's in the soul.

0:00:360:00:40

Linds?

0:00:400:00:41

Radzi, sh! I'm trying to make the start of the film look really cool.

0:00:410:00:45

But aren't we missing something?

0:00:450:00:48

What do you mean?

0:00:480:00:49

A beach?

0:00:490:00:50

Ah.

0:00:500:00:52

Yeah, fair point, Radz.

0:00:520:00:54

When you think of surfing, you'd probably imagine sandy beaches

0:00:540:00:57

and the sea, not a lake in the Welsh countryside.

0:00:570:01:00

This is Surf Snowdonia and it attracts some of the best

0:01:010:01:05

surfers in the world, like four times Welsh champion Jo Dennison.

0:01:050:01:11

I'm pumped to be here.

0:01:110:01:13

We can see how big those waves are, but we're not at a beach.

0:01:130:01:16

How on earth does this work?

0:01:160:01:17

And we've got a tub for you to help explain it to us.

0:01:170:01:20

It's really simple.

0:01:200:01:22

Basically, there's a big snowplough

0:01:220:01:24

that goes down the pier and that creates the waves,

0:01:240:01:26

just like this.

0:01:260:01:28

The snowplough goes through the water,

0:01:280:01:29

which pushes the water out the way, and you get really fun waves.

0:01:290:01:32

Oh, right, so it's actually creating a wave each side of the plough,

0:01:320:01:35

-isn't it? And you can surf on them.

-Exactly.

0:01:350:01:37

Well, you made it look so easy.

0:01:370:01:39

I don't think we're going to look quite like that today, are we?

0:01:390:01:42

I've actually done a lot of surfing myself...on the internet.

0:01:420:01:45

THEY LAUGH

0:01:450:01:47

Unlike in the sea,

0:01:470:01:48

the snowplough creates a two-metre wave every 90 seconds.

0:01:480:01:51

Jo's going to give us a surfing masterclass,

0:01:540:01:57

but we need to start on dry land.

0:01:570:01:59

OK, so this is the front, this is the tail.

0:01:590:02:02

The top, where we're going to be standing on, and we've got our

0:02:020:02:06

fins and they help you with steering when you're on a wave.

0:02:060:02:09

But before we even think about steering,

0:02:090:02:12

we need to master standing up.

0:02:120:02:14

OK, so, when you're lying on your board,

0:02:140:02:15

you want to keep nice and streamlined,

0:02:150:02:17

so keep your toes together.

0:02:170:02:19

So you can see the wave coming, so if you just look over your shoulder.

0:02:190:02:22

-Then you're going to start to paddle.

-Linds, paddle, quick!

0:02:220:02:25

THEY GIGGLE

0:02:250:02:26

OK, right. So I'm going to go one, two and you're surfing.

0:02:260:02:31

-OK.

-OK.

0:02:310:02:34

Ohhh, OK, right.

0:02:340:02:36

I'm surfing! Linds, you're off.

0:02:360:02:38

Time to get in the water?

0:02:380:02:39

-Yes!

-Sounds good.

-Linds, you up for getting in the water?

0:02:390:02:42

Water again. I said, "Never again."

0:02:440:02:47

No more water.

0:02:470:02:48

-Linds, Linds, Linds.

-Sorry. Yeah, sorry.

0:02:480:02:52

-Sh-shall we go?

-Yeah.

-Yeah, let's go.

0:02:520:02:54

-No, I love a water-based challenge.

-Yeah.

0:02:540:02:56

First up, Jo wants us to get used to catching the waves.

0:02:590:03:02

We need to lie down and paddle as hard as we can with our arms.

0:03:040:03:07

Whoa!

0:03:070:03:09

-Whoooo!

-Aaah!

0:03:090:03:11

And when you get it right, it's so much fun.

0:03:110:03:13

THEY SCREAM AND LAUGH

0:03:130:03:16

Whoa!

0:03:190:03:20

Now we've got a feel for the waves, it's time to try and stand up.

0:03:200:03:24

SHE SCREAMS

0:03:250:03:27

This is so much harder than it looks and Jo hasn't finished with us yet.

0:03:270:03:31

OK, so we've got time for one more surf session.

0:03:340:03:37

-We're going to do a challenge.

-Yes.

0:03:370:03:38

Whoever stands up for the longest on a wave will be crowned

0:03:380:03:42

Blue Peter surfing superstar.

0:03:420:03:44

-Oooh.

-Wow.

0:03:440:03:45

So, it's the best of three waves. Who can stay up the longest?

0:03:470:03:51

And I'm first.

0:03:510:03:53

Here we go.

0:03:530:03:55

Ah. That didn't quite go to plan.

0:03:550:03:58

Unlucky, Linds. My turn now.

0:03:580:04:00

Nope, got the timing all wrong.

0:04:010:04:04

OK, here we go, round two.

0:04:040:04:06

I manage to catch the wave...

0:04:060:04:08

..but, again, I just can't stand up.

0:04:110:04:13

Let's see if I can do better.

0:04:140:04:16

Up, I'm actually up!

0:04:160:04:19

That must count, surely?

0:04:190:04:20

OK, time for my final go. I can't let Radzi win.

0:04:210:04:25

Ooh, nearly.

0:04:260:04:27

Oh, no.

0:04:290:04:31

Come on, Radzi, one last chance to get this right. This is the one.

0:04:310:04:35

I'm surfing, I'm actually surfing.

0:04:380:04:42

I'm up, I'm balancing, I think I've... I've done it!

0:04:420:04:45

I just surfed the wave properly!

0:04:480:04:50

Ha-ha!

0:04:500:04:52

Mwah!

0:04:520:04:54

I loved it, I absolutely loved it.

0:04:540:04:56

And when you get it, you feel on top of the world.

0:04:560:04:58

Well, Radz, here you go.

0:04:580:05:01

I think you won this fair and square today.

0:05:010:05:04

-Aw, look at that!

-Well done. Now get in the water and go and ride it in.

0:05:040:05:09

-Let's go.

-No, don't, don't.

-No, I'll, I'll hurt myself.

0:05:090:05:12
