This venue is wonderful as there is a lagoon for initial instruction and practise but is beside the sea for the next stage.
Whether you just want to try Sailing, Stand Up Paddle boarding, Wake-boarding or Windsurfing, or you want to make the most of living by the sea, this is it! I cannot think of any other place where so many different types of people can enjoy themselves
I wanted to email as I had a 1:1 paddle board lesson today with Sian and she was amazing. I asked at the front desk who I should contact to pass this positive feedback to and was given your email address. Sian was patient, kind and a great teacher who supported and encouraged me to great effect. I thoroughly enjoyed my first experience paddle boarding and will certainly be back, despite being extremely nervous beforehand.
