Now Open 7 Days A Week

As of the 22nd May 2020 we are open 7 days a week until the end of August. We open from 9.30am until 5.30 and also opening until 8.30pm, fortnightly, on Friday and Monday from the 29th May. However if the weather is bad or the tides are low, we may not turn up, so it’s always good to check first!

Due to the latest government Covid19 announcement and in discussion with BCP council, as of the 15th May, Shoresports will be back open for business. We will, and encourage our customers to, be following the governments guidelines for social distancing.

We are very excited at the announcement which now actively encourages people to take unlimited amounts of outdoor exercise. As with the guidelines advise we will only except customers who are alone or in single family/household groups. We have a contactless card machine for payments, we will be asking customers to queue 2 metres apart, we will be using antibacterial wipe, spray and hand gel, plus freshly cleaned and disinfected wetsuits. We do currently have new wetsuits that are still in their packaging waiting for you to use them. Please also be aware we will only be operating within Christchurch harbour and you will need to allow 2m distancing from others, when on the water. PLEASE STAY ALERT AND BE SAFE, so we can control the virus.

ShoreSports watersports school uses the safe and shallow waters of Christchurch Harbour, operating from Mudeford Quay, Dorset. Learn to sail, windsurf, kayak or stand-up-paddleboard (SUP) with our qualified instructors, join one of our popular tours up river, have lessons or simply hire equipment.

Our Kids Clubs increases in popularity each year. They run during the summer school holidays. Our Kids Club is aimed at all children from age 8-16 and is a fun but structured way to get children on the water and improving their skills in different sports.

This year we can offer the same activities as last year, such as windsurfing, sailing but also a week of multiple activities including kayaking, Stand Up Paddleboarding (SUPing) and raft building. Ask Nick for more information.
