Managed to fit us in for a private windsurf lesson for my 3 kids at very late notice, they totally loved it, very friendly instructor and safe environment. Shame we don't have time for wakeboarding tomorrow. Or SUP. Or Laser sailing...
We were on holiday in the area with our 2 teenage daughters. we always try something new whilst on Holidays; something a little out of our usual comfort zone and this year it was an hour's windsurfing.
none of us had tried this previously and we had a private session with a tutor, followed by an additional hour for us to use the equipment.
Our tutor was lovely and extremely patient as we initially struggled with nerves and balancing on the boards. however, we had a great time and really enjoyed this as a family afternoon together.
Hove lagoon is agreat place to learn windsurfing because the water is so shallow. Being on the coast, the wind is pretty reliable. The team who work there are enthusiastic, friendly and helpful
Hove Lagoon is the perfect place if you are new to water sports and want to get out on the water and learn a new skill - a range of courses and taster sessions are on offer, in a safe, controlled environment so you don't need to be worried about getting swept out onto the open sea when the wind gets under your sail !
