Our aim is for members to grow into confident and independent water people. The sea offers us a wonderful, varied, dynamic exciting playground for watersports. But it can be dangerous and unforgiving. It is better to go slowly, learn and be prepared. This is a journey. Enjoy it. Start with our instructor led clinics. These will build your skills, experience , and introduce you to safety requirements. Some of these will run on the Lagoon so we can build your skills in readiness for the sea. We will go on the sea when ever we can. Please ask the office or an instructor which clinic is most suitable for you. As you progress we are able to sign you off as ready for “Sea Hire” enabling you to hire on the sea. Experienced windsurfers and SUPers can skip the clinics if they are able to demonstrate suitable ability. Once we are confident of your ability we can sign you off for “Sea Hire”. This means you can hire on the sea out side of clinic times. This also enables you to hire when the centre is closed (eg early morning SUP paddle) and take equipment off to other venues. There is NO safety cover provided for your hire. You responsible for your own safety. Hence we require you to take additional sensible safety precautions. We may put restrictions on the range of conditions that we will hire to you in and advise you attend further clinics to gain more experience. Important info on sea hire can be found here. Any questions please feel free to ask. Club members, that have not been signed off for Sae Hire may go on the sea as part of our instructor led clinics.

After that you will not be able to use the cable until you pay £10 for the missed session. You must book your ride sessions online If you cannot find ride sessions to book please contact us and we can try and add additional sessions for you. We consider any member taking more than 40 ride sessions per season to be getting a great deal and will give priority to members riding less and are having difficulty in finding sessions.

Changing , pausing or suspending membership Changing membership That is no problem. If you have learnt a new activity, want to add another adult or child we can amend your membership accordingly. Pausing Membership Please contact us to discuss options. Cancelling Membership 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 email@example.com. By signing up you are committing to a years membership. There are no refunds once you have completed the 14day cooling off period. If you are paying by monthly payments these should stop when your membership ends. We strongly advise you to check that the payments have stopped. 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 and you are liable for the full membership fee in all circumstances. We will not refund a membership for any reason. eg job relocation, illness. 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. we will also consider offering you a credit that can be used on any activities that we offer. We will also consider making this transferable. Guests Your membership includes 5 free guest passes. Your guest must have the same previous watersports experiences other members to hire equipment except for kayaks on the Lagoon. How membership fits into our centre 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. Winter Your membership period you pay for is for our "summer season" First weekend in April - October 31st. Any winter, November 1 - March 31, opening is a free bonus for members. We are “soft open” weekends in November and December. We are usually closed for January, February and March for members hire*. Sea Hire and Takeaway hire is available to members that are signed off for it. Please note when it gets cold in the winter the Lagoon can leak and it can be tricky to keep water in the Lagoon. Every other year, in the winter, we drain the lagoon for cleaning. This usually takes minimum of 6 weeks. *In the winter We reserve the right not to open : We may decide not to open if the weather is unsuitable. eg freezing cold or extreme gales. Also if there is no water in the Lagoon or staff sickness/holiday. We advise you do not join if winter opening is really important to you unless you are signed off for Sea Hire Booking for friends and family that are members We can set up your account so you can make bookings for your family members and friends. Just ask us. Currently there is one massive draw back. Due to technical issues you are only able to cancel sessions for the lead booking. We are working on a solution. Board Storage We have limited space to store members windsurf boards, SUP and wakeboards. Please ask us - there is often a waiting list.
