Where to park

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.

There is 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.

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 01590 645270

Where to meet

On the day of your lesson you will be meeting your instructor on the concrete area by the car park over looking the beach. Due to being a public car park we can't gaurantee being in the same location everytime but we aim to set up equipment on the area by the car park.

Your instructor will be wearing a blue New Forest Paddle Sport Instructor top and will have kayaks, paddles and other equipment ready for the session laid out.
