Are you looking for a different way to get your kids outside in the fresh air, learning, developing and taking on new challenges this summer? We have some great Kids Watersports Courses set up for this summer. Throughout these courses your child will not only recieve top quality tuition and have a great time but the experience also aims to inspire and help young people to develop their self-esteem, confidence, motivation and teamwork skills – all essential attributes for personal development.

Kids Multi Activity Weeks 

Kids Activity Weeks are a week of turbo charged fun where the children will experience the thrills of windsurfing, sailing, kayaking, wakeboarding, paddleboarding, raft building and racing and on-land activities such as team challenges and treasure hunts. These weeks are suitable for kids age 8 – 13. More info on Kids Activity Weeks…

Our Teen Activity Weeks are aimed at kids age 12 plus. The main difference is that two days of the week are spent at our Brighton Marina venue getting out on the sea yacht sailing and powerboating. It is a brilliant opportunity to have fun, make friends and experience some fabulous activities.  More info on Kids Teen Activity Weeks…

Kids RYA Sailing Courses at Hove Lagoon & Brighton Marina

Kids can learn to sail at Hove Lagoon from the age of 6 with the RYA Learn to Sail Stage 1 & Stage 2 courses. From age 8 they can then complete their RYA Stage 3 & Stage 4 on the sea from Brighton Marina.

Kids age 12 plus may wish to consider our exciting sea based course, the RYA Level 1&2 Youth Coastal Sailing Course which is on the sea from Brighton Marina. We will be running regular sessions for children to practice their sailing from the Marina throughout the summer

Kids Wakeboarding at Hove Lagoon

Wakeboarding at Hove Lagoon is a thrilling and dynamic activity for kids age 10+ (Age 8 for private sessions). We offer the respected BWSW Cutting Edge training program as the basis for all our lessons. We run three of the levels, Bronze, Silver and Gold. Each course is run over two sessions of two hours which is shared by just three kids. For the Gold and Silver awards some post course practice may be required to achieve the award. Over the last 3 seasons of running kids wakeboarding we have been refining our course structure and this year we have shortened the length of the session and reduced the number of kids on each session. The aim of this is to reduce time waiting around. If you would like your child to be with us for a longer period of time we can offer a choice of other activities. Please contact us.

NEW for 2015 – Kids SUPing (Stand up Paddleboarding)

SUPing has exploded in popularity over the last few years. Equipment manufacturers have started making equipment that is suitable for younger children, which is great news as they love SUPing and the new equipment makes it more accessible and enjoyable. Click here for more details. Kids SUPing at the Lagoon was featured on SKY TV’s Game Changer show – watch video

Kids Windsurfing

Windsurfing is fun, exciting and kids love it. Neither age or strength are a barrier to kids learning to windsurf. Our RYA Windsurfing courses are suitable for kids age 8+. We offer the RYA stages 1 – 4. The first two stages are completed on the Lagoon and we hope to venture onto the sea for the more advanced course.

Getting out on the water and practising is just as much fun and we offer a range of thriving Watersports Clubs for each activity.
