Advanced Windsurf Board Hire on the Sea As of July 2019 we have decided to restrict the use of the advanced windsurf boards ie the Fanatic Blasts and Freewaves to Gold Safety Card Holders only. The reason for this : Over the last few years the cost of windsurfing equipment has risen significantly. The Fanatic Freewave and Blast boards are advanced high tech windsurfing boards that retail for £1700. These boards offer advanced windsurfers very high levels of performance and are some of the best boards on the market. However this performance comes at a price and that is the durability of these boards. They are not as durable as the Geckos. We are finding an increasing amount of damage to these boards. This is causing frustration amongst advanced members who are unable to use them whilst they are being repaired and also has significant cost implications for us. Most of this damage is caused by catapults and mishandling when carrying or launching and landing. These are common issues for intermediate windsurfers. To reduce the amount of time the boards are out of action for repair and reduce costs to the club and therefore to members we have decided to restrict the use of Blasts and Freewaves to Gold Safety Card holders. In practice if you are not a gold safety card holder you are not going to get the benefits of these high performance boards and are likely to have a more enjoyable windsurf on a Gecko. Obviously exceptions can be made when we are short of equipment. Where possible, on windy days, we will try and provide an additional member of staff to try and advise and help members with equipment management. Gold card members wishing to hire Blasts and Freewaves will now have to collect the fins from the office and sign boards in and out.

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 slots per day except Sundays which is 1 session. 2) You may only book up to 4 wakeboard ride sessions in advance. 3) Additional slots can be booked at a cost of £10 per session - these will be charged on arrival not at the time of booking. 4) If you cannot attend your sessions it is essential you let us know so other people can ride. Cancellations must be made no later than 3 hours before your session is booked for. There will be no charge for cancellations made. 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) You may bring guests to wakeboard at a reduced mates rate fee of £10 per session. Max use three times per person. 7) Hire boards cost an extra £5 unless you have included them in your membership.

Any time spent on the water will help all of your watersports improve. How membership fits into our centre 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. Winter We are “soft open” weekends from November and December.
