We supply all of the equipment for your activity.

For all sports: remember to bring sunglasses, sun cream and a hat even if it’s not sunny!

For water-based sports: you just need a pair of trunks or a swimsuit. For after the session, bring a towel and some warm clothes.

For land based sports: you need trainers or boots with ankle support and suitable clothing for the weather conditions. A change of clothes in case it rains and a windcheater is also a good idea.

For kitesurfing: If you’ve got your own suit, boots and harness bring them, if not, we’ll supply them. For cooler days bring a warm change of clothes and a woolly hat. As you’ll be getting wet, don’t forget your towel.
