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 memberships@hicklingbroad.co.uk. There’s also further information on joining here.

20 May – Come and Try day

We do like our open days, and this year’s was up there with our best. Our visitors must have thought so too, as a staggering 77% of them joined, which is quite an improvement on the 5% from last year. That’s astonishing. A lot of hard work and a beer after. Well done to the 20+ volunteers who made this possible: Gareth, Wendy, John, Patricia, Philip, Keith, Roger, Glynis, Darren, Jeff, Simon, David, Steve, Chris, Darren, Sam, Wendy, Neil, David, Paul and Tone.
