Lagoon Watersports is a great watersports venue and club, with really good facilities and equipment, and a good café too. The staff are always friendly, professional and welcoming. It’s a great place for beginners as well as experienced watersporters. I love it.

Dominic Glover

Have been a regular user of Lagoon Watersports for some years. I always get a warm welcome,they have a young team of instructors for windsurfing, wakeboarding and stand up paddle. Tuition is second to none, with safety and fun top of their list. I often attend the Sunday windsurfing clinics which have helped me progress greatly.

I can’t think of anywhere else I want to be in my spare time.

I currently am a member of the SUP club and would like to say what a great summer I have had down at Hove Lagoon learning to SUP, taking part in the social sessions, learning to windsurf and taking a kayak onto the sea.

Great day last Saturday on the Wake Boarding and the Paddle Boat Fitness. Great weather and atmosphere. I’m glad I signed up. Thanks also to Lily for teaching me to corner…..in a few weeks I hope to have got it. Looking forward to next weekend now.

Just wanted to thank you all, especially Isaac for giving my husband the wonderful gift of Windsurfing, it seems he was born to do it and I can see so much positive change, happiness and Joy in him because of it.

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 sessions per day except Sundays which is 1 session. (We reserve the right to change this at amy time. eg during the COVID-19 restrictions it will be one session per day)

  3. Additional slots can be booked at a cost of £10 per session online with the discount code "RIDE"
  4. If you cannot attend your session it is essential you cancel it so other members can wakeboard. Demand frequently exeeds availaibility. Cancellations must be done online. There will be no charge. 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. If you cannot find ride sessions to book please contact us and we can try and add additional sessions for you. We consider any member taking more than 40 ride sessions per season to be getting a great deal and will give priority to members riding less and are having difficulty in finding sessions.

  8. There is no wakeboarding until 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.

The sea can be a challenging place. Our aim is for members to grow into confident and independent water people. 

The sea offers us a wonderful, varied, dynamic exciting playground for watersports. But it can be dangerous and unforgiving. It is better to go slowly, learn and be prepared. 

This is a journey. Enjoy it. 

Start with our instructor led clinics.

These will build your skills, experience , and introduce you to safety requirements. Some of these will run on the Lagoon so we can build your skills in readiness for the sea. We will go on the sea when ever we can.

Please ask the office or an instructor which clinic is most suitable for you. 

As you progress we are able to sign you off as ready for “Unsupervised hire”. Experienced windsurfers and SUPers can skip the clinics if they are able to demonstrate suitable ability.

Once we are confident of your ability we can sign you off for “Unsupervised hire”. This means you can hire on the sea out side of clinic times. 

To take advantage of this you will need to arrange your own third party insurance and take a means of attracting attention with you on the water. 

There is NO safety cover provided for your hire. You responsible for your own safety. 

We may put restrictions on the range of conditions that we will hire to you in and advise you attend further clinics to gain more experience.

More info on unsupervised hire

We are able of offer experienced windsurfers and SUPers “Self Service” Hire. This enable you to hire equipment from us and practice watersports when we are closed.

To take advantage of this you will need to meet ability and experience standards. Please ask us to see if you are ready.

There is NO safety cover provided for your hire. You responsible for your own safety. 

Club members may go on the sea when we are running instructor led training clinics or if they have been signed off for unsupervised hire.

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.

Your membership period you pay for is for our "summer season" First weekend in April - October 31st. Any winter, November 1 - March 31, opening is a free bonus for members.

We are “soft open” weekends from November and sometimes in to December. We are usually closed for January, February and first half of March for members hire* :

Lagoon : Windsurfing, SUPing, Kayaking

Sea : There is  no safety cover. You may hire our equipment on the sea if you are a member of our Unsupervised Hire Club.
