West Beach Hayling Island is a private beach owned by Hayling Golf Club and we are licensed to operate kitesurfing from this location. Hayling Island boasts one of the best kitesurfing spots in the UK and the club provides valuable beach support and a great community of kiters.
The Kitesurfing Club has been running for the past 8 years and was voted best UK Kitesurfing Club in the UK Industry Awards 2015, 2016 & 2017. Being a member of the club offers beach safety, management, on the spot help and advice, Demo days/equipment, off shore riding, BBQ’s, discounts on gear, free clinics and much more!
Membership costs £150 per year and runs from April to March.
All members must hold BKSA third party liability insurance with a public indemnity of £5 million.
Membership Benefits Include
CBK members of staff will be on the beach every weekend and bank holiday during April to the end of October to provide rescue boat and quad cover, first aid and general kitesurfing support to members. This will also apply to a number of additional weekdays during the season and windy weekdays and weekends during the closed season.
We can offer SUP hire at a discounted rate to members. We also organise member trips to the local wakeparks on windless days with free BBQ’s!
Events & Demo Days
CBK will organise events during the year for members including downwinders and manufacturer demo days. We also have demo equipment outside of these which is available for members to demo and is taken to the beach each week with the beach manager
CBK will run kite trips abroad and in the UK for members during the quiet season. We tend to run coaching holidays March/April time and again in November.
Off Shore Riding
We will offer boat cover so members can kitesurf safely in offshore wind conditions (should conditions allow). This will increase kitesurfing opportunities on the water as off shore wind is notoriously not favourable on most south coast locations.
As a member you will receive 10% off purchases in the CBK shop.
The website will contain daily updates on wind and tide and live videos updates will be posted onto the Facebook page. An email is also sent out to members every Friday with a forecast on the weekend’s conditions.
We run free safety clinics and also host Pro Coaching clinics with Lewis Crathern, Sam Light and other pro riders!
