"This is a dream come true! I've been passionate about the water all my life, so I'm so please we have opened a centre for all to experience"

Co Founder & Director

2 centres - Southern France

We have two centres a short distance from each other, each with their own personalities, but whichever you choose, your group will flourish from the programmes on offer, designed to be fun, full of action, in a safe environment. Welcome to the Soustons - Port D'Albert - Landes Atlantique Sud

Sweet & Salty

Our two variations - Centre Isle Verts is our SWEET centre - fresh water, lake side, wonderful facilities on a well designed centre, tranquil, 10 mins walk from the beautiful village of Soustons. New Horizon is our SALTY centre - Salt water non tidal lake, that beach resort feeling, just a stone throw from the huge dunes, 100km of sandy beach adjacent to Port D'Albert

Short History

Activity weeks, enrichment weeks, residentials... the activities, the environment, the freedom, the fun & smiles are all staples on a water sports trip. We have been on the search for a great location that nails every aspect to be able to "launch" (forgive the pun) our water sports programme. Right from the beginning we have wanted to have a centre in France, both our founders have rich (and different) heritage in water sports. Chris worked within the schools water sports tours space for many years in both the UK and in France, qualifying in multiple RYA disciplines. All types of sailing have remained a staple for Chris up to the current day. Simon growing up in Falmouth, Cornwall was more of a "fun" user, participating in local races in multiple dinghy classes, moving to windsurfing in his late teens, prior to moving from sea into the mountains. These day's, where's there's a chance to be on the water, be it on a SUP, dinghy, day boat, wake ski, you name it - we take it!

Key Principles

Risk Management

Our Safety Management System is an integral part of our watersports programme, and understanding the risks and preventative measures outside of the obvious risks associated with water activities is a must.

Sports & Abilities

The different types of water activities, the duration of the sessions and the vessels we use, are to give all participants a sense of achievement. They will be "sailing", they will be "riding the waves", "paddling" and learning.


The location of our centres have been chosen for the doorstep and neighbouring "safe" bodies of water, the equipment and instructors, and the wonderful French feeling and surroundings they are in.
