As an experienced windsurfer with my 13 year old son, this was the perfect location to learn. we were matched with the right equipment, given an initial briefing then sent straight out onto the water. Tris had us flying in no time. great teaching, perfect centre!

The perfect opportunity to try out and experience e-foiling. It wasn’t the nicest of conditions with a brisk NE wind but Joe was enthusiastic and myself and a friend went out with support and safety from Joe in the rib. Such a great experience flying across the harbour. I’ll be back for some more of that! Thanks 🤙🤙

We had a windsurfing taster session. Was great fun. Brilliant location, friendly staff, laidback but professional. Felt like we'd started to get the hang of it by the end of the 2 hour session.
