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.

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!

Dalany

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.
