Kayak on sea

 Lesson Information

Thank you for booking your Kayak on the sea lesson with us.

Your lesson will be from Hurst Road East Car Park.

Please see image below and read the key information to find us.

On the day of your lesson please meet your instructor at the Hurst Road East Car Park.

 

The post code for Hurst Road East car park is SO41 0PY

 

There is a long stay pay and display car park for parking and payment is by loose change, Ringo or New Forest Long Stay Parking clocks.

We do have limited phone signal so we would recommend bringing loose change for parking.

In busy times parking can be difficult so please leave plenty of time to park or alternatively park in Milford on Sea and walk to the sea front this can take 15 - 20 min approx.

 

We recommend 2 hours parking for your session.

Please make sure you have parked and arrive 5 - 10 mins before your lesson this should give you plenty of time to get ready and keep groups from mixing.

 

During our busy periods we will not be able to wait for late arrivals as this impacts on the rest of the paddlers in the group. Please notify us if you will be running late by calling us on 07917 443370

You will need to use the public toilets for getting changed as we don't have our own changing room.

So please come wearing clothing and footwear you are happy to get wet and take part in.

There are public toilet facilities to use along the sea front by the bowls club but we recommend getting changed before coming to us for your lesson.

We recommend wetsuits for these sessions as you are more likely to fall in on the sea.

Alternatively on summer days light weight quick drying clothing is suitable.

 

Footwear for the lesson is essential and can be old trainers or beach shoes that you are happy to get wet. We do sell a range of watersports shoes and boots which can be viewed and purchased here

If you purchase shoes we can bring these for you on the day but we do not hold stock at Keyhaven.

We are currently offering limited wetsuit hire.

For on sea lessons we will need to know what size wetsuits to bring along with us.

If you have your own wetsuit and equipment we would recommend wearing your own as we can't guarantee offering you a dry wetsuit after they have all been washed in between uses.

We are able to store any items you wish to keep dry and leave secure in our vehicle whilst you are on your lesson such as car keys and we recommend leaving any other valuables in your car.

If you have any questions before your hire please feel free to contact us on 01590 645270 or email info@thenewforestpaddlesportcompany.co.uk
