About Beach Club at Hove Lagoon

What is Beach Club Membership

Membership at Hove Lagoon will save you the expense of buying your own equipment, transporting and maintaining it and will enable you to just turn up and go. The membership can be built up depending on how often you expect to use the equipment and whether you are a single person using it, a couple or a family and as to what equipment each person will use. Depending on your membership you will be able to improve your skills by attending the instructor lead training sessions, will receive discounts on further courses if you would like to try something new or simply have the opportunity to enjoy the water and meet new people.

Hove Lagoon

SUP Membership (Lagoon windsurfing)

Once you have completed a basic course in standup paddleboarding or the RYA Learn to Windsurf Course you will be able to practice on Hove Lagoon. There are regular instructor lead sessions to help you improve your skills. If you are a SUPer you will soon reach the standard where you can get out on the sea and enjoy all that it has to o er whether it be a cruise along the coast, SUP sur ng or joining in on the race training. If you are a windsurfer you will soon be ready to do the RYA Intermediate Course which will get you ready for going on the sea.

  • All equipment and wetsuits included
  • Safety cover on the sea for standup paddleboarding
  • You will receive 45% off courses at Hove Lagoon.

Wakeboard Membership

Once you are up and riding and getting the corners you will be ready to ride the cables. As a member you will be able to book your ride sessions online (up to two per day) and just turn up and ride. Boards, helmets, wetsuits all included. You will also be able to standup paddleboard on the lagoon and sea and windsurf on the lagoon if you are of a suitable standard.

  • Membership to include or not include the wakeboard hire.
  • You will receive 65% off courses at Hove Lagoon

Pro Membership (Sea Windsurfing)

If you are of a level to be able to sail on the sea and intend to do so regularly then there is a membership that will allow you to do this using the range of sea equipment at Lagoon Watersports that is rigged and ready to go. There will be safety cover at dedicated times but if you are of a higher ability you will have the option to sail outside of these times. This membership will also give you the use of the the standup paddleboards and you will have the option to include the cable wakeboarding or not.

  • You will receive 75% off courses at Hove Lagoon

Pay As You Go

If you are keen to get on the water but know that your time available is limited there is the option to pay a membership fee that will give you discounted hire rates. This is the only option to windsurf on the sea without becoming a full member.


We offer kids memberships that work just like the adult memberships but much cheaper. Kids can also be added to exiting adult memberships for even cheaper rates.

“I just wanted to say how much I’ve loved my hire membership at the lagoon”

Katherine Skinner

“I currently am a member of the SUP club and would like to say what a great summer I have had down at Hove Lagoon learning to SUP, taking part in the social sessions, learning to windsurf and taking a kayak onto the sea.”

Sarah Ward

“I first came down to the Lagoon in October 2016 for a windsurf course. Then got on the lagoon regularly over the autumn / winter and joined as a full sea member in April. Progression has been massive, it’s been a great first year – thanks!”

“I absolutely love Lagoon and people there so will definitely be back the next season!”

Edita Kulipavičiūtė

Choosing the best membership option for you

Wakeboarding : Ride more than 19 times in a year? Beach Club Wake is the best value. Ride less than that and either Pay As You Go membership or Ride Cards work out as the best value.

Windsurfing : Beginner / intermediate windsurfers currently on the Lagoon, looking to improve by attending some clinics with the aim of getting on the sea. Windsurf more than 13 times a year and Beach Club SUP / Wind is the best value. Less than that you ar best to hire on an hourly basis.

Windsurfing on the sea more than 11 times in a year? You will save money by joining Beach Club Pro rather than the Pay as Go Membership.

SUPing : Padlle about 12 times in a year on the sea and you will save money by joining Beach Club SUP. If you are not bothered about SUPing on the sea hiring by the hour is the best value until you vist us about 18 times a year.

Couples and familes get even better value from membership.

Board Storage 2018-02-14T15:18:27+00:00

How membership fits into our centre 2018-02-14T15:20:29+00:00

Lagoon Watersports operates by offering tuition to the public, groups and hire (membership) in multiple activities. Not one activity or element is big enough to sustain the centre on its own. The success of the centre is based on multiple activities balancing the three elements of tuition, groups and hire.

Our success is based on introducing new people to watersports and providing a route for them to practice and progress.

In practice this means members do not have sole use of the equipment or cables. There are times that you may not be able to gain access to the equipment or cable time you want as it is being used for another part of the operation. We know you want to get out on the water as much as possible and we provide as much availability of equipment, staff and wakeboarding time as possible. Please understand the facilities are for the use of a wide range of customers and not just Club Members. Sometimes it may not be possible for you to get your preferred session times.

If you have any difficulties please contact us.

Cancelling membership 2018-02-14T15:21:06+00:00

Your membership will end after 12 months at which point you can decide if you wish to rejoin. All communication regarding membership administration must be sent to tigger@lagoonwatersports.co.uk

If you are paying by monthly payments these should stop when your membership ends. BUT it is your job to ensure that your bank follows the instructions on the standing order mandate correctly. We strongly advise you to check that the payments have stopped. We will not be li- able for a mistake made by your bank and will not return over payments.

By choosing to pay by Standing Order you are accepting that you are liable for the payment of the full annual membership fee. It is not a monthly membership fee, it is a way to enable you to spread the cost of your membership over 12 months.

We will not refund a membership for any reason. eg job relocation.

Illness or injury

In the event of illness or injury making it impossible for the customer
to use the facilities, Lagoon Watersports will consider a membership holiday period until the customer is able to use the facilities again. No refunds will be made and full payment for the membership period is still due. The maximum length of any holiday period is 12 months.
