Who and Where are We?

About us

We are based in Poole, Dorset with our retail space in Lilliput just up the road from our van at Sandbanks where we offer retail and tuition. We are very lucky to have both our shop and Watersports school so we can offer not only advice and top-quality equipment for sale but also knowledge of the area, Watersports and provide the opportunity to get you out on the water.

Our area is known for its award-winning beach and the harbour which is the second largest natural harbour in the world. We run windsurf, wing, kitesurf and stand up paddle board (SUP) lessons as well as providing guided kayak and SUP tours. We rent SUPs and kayaks for both hour and day hire. Much of the harbour is shallow which makes it a great place to learn many Watersports safely. We provide an area when renting with us to keep you and others on the water safe. If you want to explore outside our area we suggest one of our tours or you can rent equipment to take away for the day or longer if you wish to explore further afield.

Our shop can be found just up the road from the harbour in Lilliput. Chris has owned Poole Harbour Watersports for over 20 years and is known by most of the community. When he is not in the shop you can normally find him on the water or at a windsurf event with one of his four children. Here we sell everything a watersports enthusiast could need. We are one of the biggest Watersports shops in the UK and pride ourselves on selling only the best quality products from top brands. With our staffs many years of experience we can provide you with advice, whether you are just starting out, looking to improve or even get into racing. We have some great team riders who are always happy to help support people into their sport and help us to help you.

Our Shop is open 7 days a week only closing for Christmas because we want to be here for you what ever the weather. We provide lots of accessories and spare parts, everything from fin bolts to wetsuits, drybags to flip flops we have it all and we are always looking for new products to help you explore the wonderful waters of the UK and beyond. We provide worldwide delivery via our website and also have a live chat system so if you are not able to come into store we can still help and advice you on the products we provide.
