We've only got five minutes, so get ready for your Blue Peter adventure.
Catching the first wave of the day.
Breaking the surface of the water.
Surfing - some say it's in the soul.
Radzi, sh! I'm trying to make the start of the film look really cool.
But aren't we missing something?
What do you mean?
Yeah, fair point, Radz.
When you think of surfing, you'd probably imagine sandy beaches
and the sea, not a lake in the Welsh countryside.
This is Surf Snowdonia and it attracts some of the best
surfers in the world, like four times Welsh champion Jo Dennison.
I'm pumped to be here.
We can see how big those waves are, but we're not at a beach.
How on earth does this work?
And we've got a tub for you to help explain it to us.
It's really simple.
Basically, there's a big snowplough
that goes down the pier and that creates the waves,
just like this.
The snowplough goes through the water,
which pushes the water out the way, and you get really fun waves.
Oh, right, so it's actually creating a wave each side of the plough,
-isn't it? And you can surf on them.
Well, you made it look so easy.
I don't think we're going to look quite like that today, are we?
I've actually done a lot of surfing myself...on the internet.
Unlike in the sea,
the snowplough creates a two-metre wave every 90 seconds.
Jo's going to give us a surfing masterclass,
but we need to start on dry land.
OK, so this is the front, this is the tail.
The top, where we're going to be standing on, and we've got our
fins and they help you with steering when you're on a wave.
But before we even think about steering,
we need to master standing up.
OK, so, when you're lying on your board,
you want to keep nice and streamlined,
so keep your toes together.
So you can see the wave coming, so if you just look over your shoulder.
-Then you're going to start to paddle.
-Linds, paddle, quick!
OK, right. So I'm going to go one, two and you're surfing.
Ohhh, OK, right.
I'm surfing! Linds, you're off.
Time to get in the water?
-Linds, you up for getting in the water?
Water again. I said, "Never again."
No more water.
-Linds, Linds, Linds.
-Sorry. Yeah, sorry.
-Sh-shall we go?
-Yeah, let's go.
-No, I love a water-based challenge.
First up, Jo wants us to get used to catching the waves.
We need to lie down and paddle as hard as we can with our arms.
And when you get it right, it's so much fun.
THEY SCREAM AND LAUGH
Now we've got a feel for the waves, it's time to try and stand up.
This is so much harder than it looks and Jo hasn't finished with us yet.
OK, so we've got time for one more surf session.
-We're going to do a challenge.
Whoever stands up for the longest on a wave will be crowned
Blue Peter surfing superstar.
So, it's the best of three waves. Who can stay up the longest?
And I'm first.
Here we go.
Ah. That didn't quite go to plan.
Unlucky, Linds. My turn now.
Nope, got the timing all wrong.
OK, here we go, round two.
I manage to catch the wave...
..but, again, I just can't stand up.
Let's see if I can do better.
Up, I'm actually up!
That must count, surely?
OK, time for my final go. I can't let Radzi win.
Come on, Radzi, one last chance to get this right. This is the one.
I'm surfing, I'm actually surfing.
I'm up, I'm balancing, I think I've... I've done it!
I just surfed the wave properly!
I loved it, I absolutely loved it.
And when you get it, you feel on top of the world.
Well, Radz, here you go.
I think you won this fair and square today.
-Aw, look at that!
-Well done. Now get in the water and go and ride it in.
-No, don't, don't.
-No, I'll, I'll hurt myself.
