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

Public Come and Try day – 21 June 2014



‘Just a perfect day’ as the song goes.

Visitors were treated to a first class introduction to windsurfing and our Club. A very confident, calm, professional, and friendly (our trade mark) operation. Go to our facebook page for pictures and comments - click here.

Well done and a special thanks to the support team– JT, Trish, Phil, Graham, Jeff, Geoffrey, Julie, John, Ros, Kathy, Dick, Darren, Paul, Martin, Philip, Gareth, Simon, Anita, Richard, Robbie, Tone, and Noah.

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).

I’ve been meaning to get this video completed and uploaded for a while, although it’s been edited so much that it’s more of a trailer than a video. Hope you enjoy it.

AGM – 5 December 2013


This was as much a social as an AGM. The meeting purpose was to formalise the end of the club year and agree committee members for 2014. Four new committee members were appointed; Neil, Ros, Jeff, and Wendy. Two key promotions with Gareth as Vice Chairman, and Simon bravely taking on the Membership Secretary role. Special thanks go to Pat for VC support for longer than anyone can remember, and Philip for providing an exceptional membership secretary service for the last few years. Sadly Graham has decided to retire from committee life.  A key ‘helper’, previous news letter editor, and major contributor to committee meeting AOBs. Graham, thanks and look forward to sailing with you soon.

Finances, membership numbers, and website traffic continue to be strong. Some challenging weather in 2013 resulting in the annual Fun day being cancelled, but the Come and Try day was successful despite some extreme conditions. A membership survey will be carried out in 2014 to check for member satisfaction and seek new ideas. A Hickling Windsurfing Club facebook page will be trialled through 2014 to help the club engage with it’s members on-line.

It was good to see that the function room at St. Andrews Football Club had been updated. A good turn out but the out of town location was not quite as popular as previous City centre venues.

2013 Club fun day – 14 Sept

Regrettably the forecast was rain and we couldn’t get the retractable roof to close, so the fun day was cancelled.

We have had good weather over the years, this year our luck ran out.
