Get involved in the latest aquatic craze. It's not necessary to be a daredevil to enjoy this sport - standing on a wide board, whilst being propelled through the water with a paddle, this fun activity promotes strength, balance and core fitness. Learn all fundamental techniques by a fully qualified instructor, using both sit down surf skis and stand up paddle boards. The session begins on the Hove Lagoon and if the conditions are appropriate, move onto open water to catch some East Sussex surf.
Selected Saturdays and Sundays throughout the summer season (May to October).
May be cancelled or curtailed in extreme weather conditions. Please call the venue if in any doubt.
Numbers On Day
There are up to eight people taking part.
Guests are welcome at the marina and there is a club house and bar/cafe over looking the lagoon.
Bring a swimming costume, towel and pair of old trainers (that you do not mind getting wet). If it's hot bring sunscreen, if cold bring warm dry clothes to change into. Wetsuits, buoyancy aids and helmets are provided.
From the M25, go onto the M23/A23; the coastal route A27 links the city east and west. Take the exit for Shoreham Harbour and follow the road round to the traffic lights by Sainsbury supermarket. Turn left and then right at the next lights. Follow the road over the railway down to the coast and turn left. Hove Lagoon is a little way down on the right.
