Getting Started

Minnis Bay is a great place to learn to windsurf and to progress.
We don't get big waves, but we do have a wide bay with relatively safe conditions.
The club even has several beginner's boards for members members to borrow.

Formal Lessons

We are a Club, not a training centre.
As such, if you would like formal lessons, then we recommend attending a Start Windsurfing course at a recognised RYA Training Centre. Look up the website for more details.
Our nearest centre is in Maidstone.  Contact Stuart Clarke at Mote Park Watersports (07595 539555).


The Club runs coaching sessions on windsurfing and wind foiling for those wishing to advance their skills.
We sometimes run sessions for absolute beginners depending on their previous watersports experience.
Outside of our coaching programme, you will always find another windsurfer willing to pass on their knowledge for a bit of ad-hoc support.

Kit Rental

If you think you will regularly want to borrow club equipment, rather than buy your own, then an additional annual fee of £80 is charged for the first year and £160 for each year thereafter. This is always subject to availability.
There are boards ranging from 130L up to 220L, plus sails from 4m to 6.5m to borrow. 
We also have a stock of wetsuits in several sizes, as well as buoyancy aids and a few harnesses.

Sorry, but we do not have equipment for hire to day visitors.

Just For Fun
