FAQ’s

As of July 2019 we have decided to restrict the use of the advanced windsurf boards ie the Fanatic Blasts and Freewaves to Gold Safety Card Holders only.

The reason for this :

Over the last few years the cost of windsurfing equipment has risen significantly. The Fanatic Freewave and Blast boards are advanced high tech windsurfing boards that retail for £1700.

These boards offer advanced windsurfers very high levels of performance and are some of the best boards on the market. However this performance comes at a price and that is the durability of these boards. They are not as durable as the Geckos.

We are finding an increasing amount of damage to these boards. This is causing frustration amongst advanced members who are unable to use them whilst they are being repaired and also has significant cost implications for us. Most of this damage is caused by catapults and mishandling when carrying or launching and landing. These are common issues for intermediate windsurfers.

To reduce the amount of time the boards are out of action for repair and reduce costs to the club and therefore to members we have decided to restrict the use of Blasts and Freewaves to Gold Safety Card holders.

In practice if you are not a gold safety card holder you are not going to get the benefits of these high performance boards and are likely to have a more enjoyable windsurf on a Gecko. Obviously exceptions can be made when we are short of equipment.

Where possible, on windy days, we will try and provide an additional member of staff to try and advise and help members with equipment management.

Gold card members wishing to hire Blasts and Freewaves will now have to collect the fins from the office and sign boards in and out.

We have the following rules to enable everyone to share the cable availability. If  you cannot find a wakeboard session to book please contact us and we will help you find a space.

1) Your membership entitles you to book up to 2 free wakeboard ride slots per day except Sundays which is 1 session.

2) You may only book up to 4 wakeboard ride sessions in advance.

3) Additional slots can be booked at a cost of £10 per session - these will be charged on arrival not at the time of booking.

4) If you cannot attend your sessions it is essential you let us know so other people can ride. Cancellations must be made no later than 3 hours before your session is booked for. There will be no charge for cancellations made. If you do not show up for your session, the first time this happens we will turn a blind eye to it. After that you will not be able to use the cable until you pay £10 for the missed session.

5) You must book your ride sessions online

6) You may bring guests to wakeboard at a reduced mates rate fee of £10 per session. Max use three times per person.

7) Hire boards cost an extra £5 unless you have included them in your membership. If you have included hire boards in your memebrship and you later purchase a board there will be no refund.

8) There is no wakeboarding untill 2pm on Sundays as the model boat club have the use of that part of the Lagoon.

9) Wakeboard cable systems can and do go wrong and break. In the event of a technical failure we will prioritise rebooking your sessions but there will be no refunds

Practice

Sounds obvious but the more time you spend on the water the better you will get. You don't have to stick to one activity. Any time spent on the water will help all of your watersports improve.

 

You are welcome to add your kids to your Beach Club membership. If they are of the required ability they can go on the sea (when conditions are suitable) provided we have written parental consent.

Prices

 

Prices for Kids memberships when not added to a existing membership

Your membership includes 5 free guest passes.

Your guest must have previous watersports experience to hire equipment except for kayaks on the Lagoon.

We have limited space to store members windsurf boards, SUP and wakeboards. Please ask us - there is often a waiting list.

 

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.

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.
