Buzz Active Eastbourne

(Formerly Spray Water Sports)

Our Eastbourne centre is a wonderful location for watersports. Set right on the beach, we enjoy immediate access to the open sea and the prevailing south westerly winds. And we’re right next to Princes Park, with its large, shallow lake that’s perfect for beginners, or when the weather’s a bit rough.

What we offer

Buzz Eastbourne is an RYA (Royal Yachting Association) recognised training centre, that’s open to everyone.

The centre offers courses and tuition in sailing, windsurfing, kayaking, powerboating, raft building and standup paddleboarding (SUP).

We specialise in catering for schools and groups of all abilities and backgrounds, including those with special needs.

We have a thriving sailing and windsurfing club, offering great membership rates, and are home to the RYA’s regional junior windsurfing and sailing schemes.
