Hiring equipment

Surfin’ Sam Watersports is run by the current UK Womens’ 14’ Stand Up Paddle board champion, Christine, and she is happy to share her knowledge and experience with those new to watersports.

This year there will be kayaks (singles and doubles), stand up paddle boards, body boards, windsurfers and windSUPs (boards that can be propelled by either paddles or sails) for hire. Wetsuits are also available for hire. As an example, 1 hour on a single kayak will cost £17.


Opening hours

Surfin' Sam will be open from Easter until the end of September. During July and August, and for the Whitsun week, Christine from Surfin' Sam will be at South Milton Sands every day (10am to 6pm) regardless of the weather, and it's not necessary to pre book.

Outside of high season it is advisable to book by the previous evening.
