Once again a very successful trip, with enthusiastic and encouraging staff at the Lagoon

Miss Caulfield, Head of Prep Outdoor Pursuits

Wakeboarding was really good fun and Hove Lagoon was a good location. The staff are nice and the water was clean. I would really recommend this to anyone who doesn’t mind getting wet, because you will get wet! Even if you have not done it before it is easy to learn. The most enjoyable bit is being on the water at fast speed and not falling off!

Ellis Wardle, Pupil

The trip was epic! On my first go, I got up on my feet and I was wakeboarding! Then I fell, but I got up and did it again and again until I could do a jump start and get to the other end of the lagoon faultlessly. It was challenging with the cold water and wind but the thrill made up for it without a doubt. Overall a great trip which put a smile on my face for the rest of the day

Billy Mathur, Pupil

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.”

Eddies Mum

“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
