What our customers say

Rented two paddle boards from Steve and the team for bank holiday weekend. Steve could not have been more helpful and friendly. Great quality inflatable boards that tracked well, delivered and picked up from our holiday house. Definitely recommend Steve and his team.

Loved our session! First time, definitely won’t be the last ? Fantastic location paddling the creeks at Brancaster and great training on how to use the boards. Can’t wait to go again.

Marie Doughty

Have been for both paddle boarding and kitesurfing and would thoroughly recommend them. Steve and the team are all super helpful and friendly.
Paddle boards are great quality, instruction is available and when I went it was 30 degrees, flat calm, clear water and not at all like an English summer!! Really enjoyable.
I also booked the 3 day Kitesurfing course and have just finished it, spaced out over a few weeks, due to weather and other commitments. Steve really puts you at ease, really chilled and enthusiastic, he makes it look so easy and inspires confidence. I managed to get surfing with some great instruction and thoroughly enjoyed the experience.
I will hopefully be back for more and absolutely recommend theses guys.

Just been on a fab tour with Steve. He’s super friendly and chilled. He’s on hand to give advice but it’s really all about getting out on the water and having a great time. It’s an amazing way to see the town and iconic cliffs from a new angle. I even saw a seal! This is an absolutely must-do activity if you’re anywhere near Hunstanton. I’m hoping the weather behaves so I can go again next week!

Booked a 3-day kitesurfing course with Steve at the end of July after looking around at a number of schools all over the country. Being based in Derby, with no location particularly close, I wanted to pick somewhere that could be confident would get me going safely. Steve’s page was up front in saying that to get up and onto a board, up to BKSA level 2, is best attempted over 3 days rather than the 2 days many schools declare. I figured if I did get going 2 than I’d banked some extra time to practice.

1st day involved basic theory (tides & wind windows) and kite handling with a 2-line trainer kite in the morning before heading into the water to learn 4-line kite control and then progress to body dragging. Key to all of this was explanation and demonstration of the safety systems on the kite. The day was finished with tuition in emergency kit pack up and recovery.

I had gap of nearly 2 months until my second day, due to my diary being packed over the school holidays, so we re-capped the basics of kite setup and launch before getting into the water. Spent a bit of time refreshing on body dragging before attempting first board starts. Came away after this day chuffed that I’d got up on the board several times and made a few short runs before coming off….encouraging signs.

My final day was only 2 weeks later…I’ve never watched the wind/weather forecast so intently as over those 2 weeks. On this day my board starts improved and I got some good runs in. I haven’t quite achieved my level 2 yet as my board control needs to improve, but I had a great time.

Steve is a great chap to learn from, encouraging and supportive. I’m really happy with the 3 days I spent learning with him and would recommend the 1 day taster to anyone who’s interested in giving kitesurfing a go…you’ll probably find yourself going back for another couple of days.

Hired a couple of Stand Up Paddleboard from Hunstanton Watersports this weekend. The online booking was easy to use, and the team on the promenade friendly, helpful and efficient. Would highly recommend them as a SUP hire location in North Norfolk.
