Welcome to Hickling Windsurfing Club

The premier windsurfing location on the Norfolk Broads, East Anglia, UK, and believed to be the largest windsurfing Club in the UK. A beautiful relatively safe location, close to the North Sea coast, great winds, beginner loan equipment, excellent facilities, and a warm welcome. We are also an RYA training Centre, and currently have 15 qualified instructors.

The sport of Windsurfing is great for personal fitness, and sailing along under your own power is the ultimate thrill. We can arrange buddying, and training courses new members to help get the most from the club. Our training courses tend to follow our ‘come and try’ day in May.

If you are interested to get windsurfing on the beautiful Hickling Broad then this is the day for you!! Joiners will be offered preferential rates on a 2 day beginner training course, and buddying while at the Club. T&Cs apply, and subject to availability.
