Hi Everyone! As most of you know, the Lagoon is undergoing a thorough clean over the coming weeks.

This Sunday the 28th January from 10am - 12pm we will be working alongside volunteers from 'Friends of Hove Lagoon' and 'Surfers against Sewage' to have a good old spring clean in and around Hove Lagoon.

If you have got some spare time and don't mind getting your hands dirty then your help would be very much appreciated.

Wellies / waders / wetsuit / protective gloves / wheelbarrow's all welcome!

Hot drinks provided as a thank you!

Water Quality

The water quality in Hove Lagoon is tested regularly as part of the Brighton and Hove City Councils seafront beach water quality testing. Lagoon Watersports opened in 1994, since that date the water in Hove Lagoon has passed every one with flying colours.

  • The water in the Lagoon is sea water rather than fresh water which prevents some common water quality issues that lakes suffer from.
  • The Lagoon is very shallow so the sun can penetrate to the bottom
  • There is a high level of evaporation and leakage in the Lagoon.
  • The Lagoon is topped up with fresh seawater every few days.
  • The sea water that goes into the Lagoon meets all bathing test requirements.

Clinics and Clubs

SUPing : Wednesday evening social paddle, fun racing, surfing and more
