Perfect for beginners, this taster teaches the basics of windsurfing. To begin windsurfing, learn on a beginner board with a lightweight mast. Start out on a simulator and then move onto the lagoon. Learn how to windsurf in light winds to a chosen point and return to the starting point. With a fully qualified instructor helping all the way, it's fair to say getting to grips with this hands-on sport happens very quickly.
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 will be 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.
