“Really easy booking, person was very friendly”

Just a note to say everyone had a brilliant time and enjoyed all the events. Special thanks to all the team in both the Marina and the Lagoon who looked after us. All the guys commented how friendly and professional they were. I think you may have a few new members soon , especially for the wake boarding !


The event was a huge success and the guests loved the activities. Davie and the guys were complete stars, and the whole afternoon worked superbly for their team building event. Thank you also for all your patience and assistance organising this event. It was absolutely super and we had a lot of happy faces at the end of the day!

I just wanted to say thank you again to you and your team for the fantastic job you did organising our activity. Your set up is so professional and run so well. The Partners had an amazing time. In fact the feedback was ‘it was better than last year’s activity.

Linda Steadman EC Harris

Thanks for your help in organising the stag weekend, everyone had such a great time and all the instructors were super fun and encouraging (getting everyone up on the wakeboards very quickly which some of the less active guys were really surprised with!). The food was also perfect and with the sun out, the area to chill out made for a really fun avo to kick back.

Paul Goodey

Please do thank Johnny for all his hard work organising and corralling us – and motivating us!

James Christie-Miller

A massive well done and thank you for organising the best staff day we have ever had. The whole day was perfect: your team did an amazing job. We look forward to seeing you next year.

“So much fun! Did everything that was so cool”


Extremely well informed, very personal and highly skilled! I would recommend to anyone.


I am writing on behalf of the parents whose children attended a first time sailing session on Friday at ‘The Lagoon’ . They all had such an excellent experience that we wanted to write to congratulate you on the service we all had. The children had a 2 hour session with Ben and Isaac, and as well as giving the children a fantastic lesson, in pretty windy conditions, Ben and Issac provided an informative and fun time, as well as promoting confidence.

Sam Cullen

Yesterday I completed the Level 2 Powerboat course. May I take this opportunity to say how pleasant, thorough and professional your instructor Joe was. He really is a credit to your company, unfortunately nowadays that is getting harder to come by. We British are always quick off the mark to complain, so I thought I’d spread some cheer. Here’s to a good season for us all.

James Draper

I just wanted to drop you a line to say thank you so much for a great day yesterday.  All of the staff who attended had a good time and only have positive things to say about their experience and hopefully we even managed to remember a few of the things we learnt as well!

Charlotte Roche

“I did the RYA level 1&2 last weekend and just wanted to say that I had a great time! Everyone was so friendly and enthusiastic about sailing – made it look and sound so easy!”

Mitalee Sukthankar

I just wanted to say how impressed with the RYA 1 and RYA 2 course our son completed a couple of weeks ago. My husband is a sailor and knows his stuff and he thought the course was excellent. We particularly wanted to single out one of your staff members – Tom – who was amazing with

Mrs Perry

We came to Lagoon Water Sports for a hen do this weekend, we just wanted to say a huge thank you to the team for making it a great weekend. Our yacht experience was amazing (even if Alisa through up!!) A special thanks to Joe and Tim for taking us out, it was so much fun, brilliant hosts.

Just wanted to say a massive thank you to Alex!
After my lesson yesterday I went straight down to the beach
To kite. I had been having lots of issues riding my board as
Control was all wrong , I would get up and go nowhere.
Happy to say I managed two massive rides to the left and a short one to the right.
My body aches like mad today though .
Will defiantly be back for improvers or a private lesson
Hope you have a great day

Went wakeboarding for a school enrichment and birthday loved it all hoping to get a membership

Oliver Fuller

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…

Matt Bush

Another awesome windsurf at Hove Lagoon! Great conditions, great staff and great coffee too. Looking forward to the season kicking off properly so I can enjoy all the fun things to do here.

tripadvisor review

I was bought a days sailing experience through Virgin Experiences and had a great day out on the water. All the staff at the centre were so helpful and friendly from the off set and the everything was planned really well. It was very hands on once on the boat and I learnt a lot throughout the day. Would highly recommend this for anyone looking to get into sailing!


I had a go at the wakeboarding on the zip wire. It was great fun, highly recommend. The girl running the class was very patient and knowledgeable and to my surprise I managed to get up. Exciting and fun will defiantly do again.

Pete L. has it down. Training wheels for water sports. I came out here on a LivingSocial Adventures and had a blast! Reasonable pricing scheme, really friendly (and attractive) staff.

Great for beginners, Hove Lagoon offers a safe and enjoyable way to get into windsurfing and sailing. Even if you don’t fancy these, you can take your radio controlled boats for a spin, or just go for a walk round the Lagoon to the beach. The centre also allows you to take equipment out to sea once you’ve become proficient.
