Windsurfing

Southampton University Windsurfing Club is the oldest and most experienced student windsurfing club in the UK. We have one of the largest memberships of any university windsurfing club and provide opportunities for all abilities and backgrounds.


About Windsurfing

We cater for every level from complete beginners, through to Intermediates (ability to plane) to Advanced (ability to waterstart).

The beginners windsurf at Southampton Sailing Club every Wednesday or Saturday (depending on tides), intermediates windsurf at Poole at The Watersports Academy and the Advanced windsurfers travel across the south coast either for waves or flatwater freestyle.

We attend huge student windsurf events held all around the country from the depths of Cornwall to the dizzying heights of Liverpool; these are run by the SWA (Student Windsurf Association) and the city's University.
