Overview

Rye Watersports is a long established teaching centre by Camber Sands in East Sussex giving lessons in Kitesurfing, Windsurfing, Dinghy Sailing and Stand Up Paddleboarding. Enjoy the thrill of a windsurfing or dinghy sailing lesson on our unique coastal lake on the South East Coast, where the wind always seems to blow, or learn to kitesurf on the Kent and Sussex beaches that are amongst the best in the country. We have a range of top quality boards and sails for hire including wetsuits and harnesses. Dinghy hire is available too but has to be booked in advance. If you have your own kit that's fine, day sailors are welcome. Here at our centre, in this glorious part of Kent and Sussex , is the place to get into watersports.
