For the shop
Take the same exit off of the roundabout and follow the road for approx 3/4 of a mile. Look for a Pub on the left hand side called the Waterside. At the Pub turn right into Ferry Road and Surfladle is at the end of the road on the left (the shop shares a large conservatory with a Seafood Restaurant). Parking is generally not a problem, but please observe the yellow lines (check the Parking restriction signs when on the Beach as the lines might be the same but when you can and can't park on them does differ).
For the main windsurfing area
After exiting the roundabout take the 1st turning on the right (where the road turns sharp left). At the end of the road turn right into Widewater Car Park. Beware, there is a 2m height barrier. The parking charge is £1.00 a day from April to the end of September (free during the winter months). If you have a high top vehicle the car park attendant may open the barrier but make sure you exit before he leaves (approx 5pm). If the attendant won't open the barrier then parking can be a problem... sorry. Facilities include an outside shower and toilet block along with a cafeteria which is open during the summer months.
There is a designated windsurfing launch area to the East of the 1st beach hut but there are other areas on the beach you can launch from. Kitesurfers usually launch at the East end of the beach as that is where the original permitted area was. There are restrictions during the summer months (to allow Safe Swimming Zones) which are indicated on information signs at most entry points onto the beach (if you are not sure call and ask us). Please observe these restrictions. And finally... please do not sail on the lagoon opposite the Widewater Car Park as it is a bird sanctuary!
