    • At Rye Watersports we hire out equipment on an hourly basis. We have an excellent range of Starboard and Fanatic windsurf boards and Dutone and Tushingham rigs suitable for beginners through to more advanced windsurfers. All our sails are rigged for you so it couldn’t be easier to get out on the water.
With none of the effort of loading your board onto a roof-rack etc, hiring solves any storage problems you might have.  There are many advantages to hiring as opposed to buying, especially just after your first lesson. It’s better to wait so you buy equipment that will still be suitable when your skills have improved. Our selection of kit means you can try out different sizes and types of boards then, when you do get round to buying, you know exactly what you want.  Our beautiful lake on the South East Coast near Camber Sands on the Kent and Sussex border is perfect for windsurfing hire.

My last sailing experience was over 11 years ago on multihulls and 470 Double handler, but I never sailed alone and I felt it was time to relearn from scratch. I couldn't be happier, Milly was an outstanding teacher very patient with all my questions as also all the rest of the team on both Level 1 and 2 RYA. They go through all the comptences syllabus and from there on it's up to you to improve skills, test and try out. Here they don't give you just notions, they actually train you with practical competences to be able to sail safely and have fun. I will excercise now between London and Plymouth, but this place will be my main one for any future training. I wish you all the best in the future and who knows, maybe a race!

Great for windsurfing, large lake, if you have trouble getting back to launch site or traped against a bank they have motor boats to pick you up. Good for beginner and advanced, no worries about going to far out and not being able to get back. £15 to launch if you have your own equipment. There are no mother craft buzzing about to spoil you fun. The hire out equipment give private lessons and run courses.
