Great three hours on the family package, with my twin 8 year ol boys. All three of us enjoyed the three activities. Plenty of learning and a lot of fun. God group size, great tutor and great weather.
We went to the Lagoon on Saturday 18th May as a group of ladies looking to learn kayaking, stand up paddle boarding and have a very good laugh. We had a yummy BBQ and chill in the sun before getting kitted out to tackle the activities ahead. The Lagoon has a great relaxed atmosphere and vibe with friendly professional and caring staff on hand everywhere. Our instructors were patient and good fun whilst on the water and I would recommend anyone to learn at the centre.
If you fancy having a go at Sailing, Stand up Paddle Boarding, Wake-boarding or Windsurfing all in one day then Hove Lagoon Water-sports is the place.Taught in the shallow lagoon by excellent and friendly instructors. There are showers and a great cafe to finish off the session.
Very good facilities and a very professional team that has a strong passion for watersports. Great fun and ideal conditions to learn watersports
