Equipment Hire


Are you just getting into watersports?

Is the expense and hassle of buying, storing and transporting your own kit not a feasible option for you at the moment?

Do you want an easy way to get out onto the water?

Then EQUIPMENT HIRE with Aqua Sports is the perfect way to get out onto the water.

To hire any of the equipment listed below you need to be recognised as having attained a beginner standard certificate from a recognised body in the sport of choice. Valid certificates include those from the RYA, BC or similar international organisation.  If you are not yet at this standard then please contact us for the availability of a course to suit your needs, or alternatively, if you have experience but no certificate we can do a quick assessment for you.  If you have your own equipment you can simply pay for a day launch or perhaps consider membership.

Equipment hire will give you: 

  • Time on the water to practice your skills. 
  • Familiarity with current modern equipment (effectively allowing you to demo before you buy).
  • Access to your sport with minimum fuss.
  • Opportunity to improve and enjoy without the costly investment of personal kit.

The Aqua Sports hire scheme makes it easy to get on the water with minimum fuss.  Equipment hire is by the hour at a fixed rate, or you can join as a Member and get preferential rates.

  • All equipment is fully maintained.
  • Windsurfing sails are pre-rigged.
  • Safety cover is provided if you get into difficulty
