Welcome to Hickling Windsurfing Club

The premier windsurfing location on the Norfolk Broads, East Anglia, UK. A beautiful relatively safe location, close to the North Sea coast, great winds, beginner loan equipment, excellent facilities, and a warm welcome. 

The sport of Windsurfing is great for personal fitness, and sailing along under your own power is the ultimate thrill. We can arrange limited coaching to new members to help learning and to get the most from the club. We occasionally have training days and public ‘come and try’ days too.

If you are interested in joining then e-mail There’s also further information on joining here. If you simply want more information then ring Dave Black on 01953 606532 or email

We look forward to seeing you.

19 July Training Day ….10/10.


Windier, sunnier, and warmer than forecast. It was a pleasure to spend the day with other instructors and our lovely guests to advance their windsurfing skills.

Very satisfying to see the pupils pushing their selves and moving their ability up a level or two.

Many thanks to Darren, Gareth, Martin, Phil and Richard for giving up their time for free, and supporting the Club’s training programme.

Checkout the high res pics on our Facebook page (Link on the left of this page).

Everyone, do checkout young member Briony’s quest to reach the 2020 Tokyo Olympics to represent the UK  in sailing the 49ers – go to our Facebook page for more details. Search 49ers on You Tube – you thought windsurfing was exciting!

Loads of great value 2nd hand kit for sale at the moment – check the forum updates on this page.

Paul Perry

We have received some very sad news; Paul passed away yesterday, 22 February. Please click this link for a post from Neil Greentree at Quayside. I understand Paul was a regular at Wells and Hunstanton, and if you have sailed there then the chances are you will have met Paul and Michelle. Ben and I had met Paul a few times, a thoroughly nice man. Paul, you will be greatly missed. (Pic: windsurfing at Wells).
