Eddie has just returned from the 2nd day of the windsurfing course today. He had a fabulous time. It was fun watching him in the sunshine and seeing him progress from being a complete beginner to sailing across the lagoon on his own. Many thanks to Amber for the expert tuition. Eddie already says he wants to return for the next level. It was great fun.”

We have been using Hove Lagoon now for many years for all our watersports provision. We have had activity weeks, sailing and windsurfing courses and have recently taken part in the schools sailing cup. We have always found the Staff of the Lagoon to be incredibly professional in their work and our students have all made great progress while having a fantastic time. The equipment is up to date and of high quality. I would strongly recommend Hove Lagoon to other schools. They make the booking and organisation easy. Well done Hove Lagoon”

Paul Miller, Deputy Head Cardinal Newman School

“We’ve been working with Lagoon Watersports for a number of years, and their activities are always very popular among our pupils. Their staff are knowledgeable and helpful, relating well to children of a range of ages and abilities. Many of our pupils come back year after year. Importantly for us as a school group, they are flexible and work with us to meet our requirements regarding safety regulations as well as logistics. Instruction in a range of watersports is of high quality and the activities are a lot of fun. I always look forward to working with Lagoon Watersports as I know my pupils will receive an enjoyable and rewarding experience.”
