Windsurfing, the sport that combines elements of both sailing and surfing to create a graceful yet unpredictable activity.

A sport that relies so heavily on how Mother Nature is feeling; the wind, sun and sea are entirely out of your control, which creates just half of the fun. Battling the elements is a bridge that is tackled when it is faced, but it is less of a struggle with temperament of the sea, it is learning to work alongside the changing tides, manipulating your manoeuvres, shifting your style: it’s a sport of adaptation.

Windsurfing can be enjoyed inshore but also in the open waters, it offers an amazing escape for those that just want to jump on board and see where the wind takes you. It’s a versatile sporting activity that can open you to crossing great expanses of water with a friend, or explore new and far away places alone. What is so rich about all water sports is that you have virtually unlimited access to lakes, oceans, and rivers and therefore there is no excuse for not exploring or giving such an activity a go.

The board and sail may be an opportunity for peace and quiet, but the sport is a very sociable one also. Drifting in the water alongside a loved one, friend or family member allows you to enjoy the experience together, sharing the smiles the laughs and potentially the showing off with one another.

There is no hiding away from the reality that windsurfing is challenging, but what in life is easy? This water sport is extremely rewarding both physically and mentally and although reliant upon the elements windsurfing is a mobile and active sport that will leave you rewardingly exhausted and refreshed. It is a full body workout and is an extremely enjoyable means of exercise, feel the burn of your glutes and your quadriceps as you squat and sway in rhythm with the water.

Since I was a young girl I have driven along the coast, during the summer months, is framed by scattered yachts, canoes and windsurfers. I have always admired the graceful elegance of how the board and sail carves through the rippling tide almost effortlessly, and here at Lagoon Watersports we invest in making you feel confident and care free out in the surf so that you can experience these feelings of effortlessness for yourself and hopefully go on from one of our taster days to joining our growing windsurf club.

See you on the water…

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

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.

Katie B.

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.
