ABOUT THE CLUB
Our Club is organised for windsurfers and kitesurfers by windsurfers and kitesurfers. It gives its members year round easy access to this the blue flag beach as well as a clubhouse (built in 2006) where they can hang out, shelter from the elements, have a second office with the WIFI and have a nice hot shower before driving home. Add to that the top quality instruction from 2XS, free social events and the new hire and demo centre and you would be mad not to join the place.
For a long time West Wittering beach has been a favourite amongst windsurfers, kitesurfers and paddlesurfers. There has been a Club since the late 70’s.
The unspoilt, rural bliss of the surrounding area easily earns the place its reputation as one of the best beaches in the UK. It’s amazing really that you can find such a place just over an hour’s drive from London.
Being on the edge of the South Downs and Chichester Harbour, this really is a fantastic part of the world.
Lose yourself in a walk along the sand dunes at East Head, gorge yourself on a BBQ or just sit on the beach and take in the view, this place is not only for those that like to go in the water.
WORLD CLASS CONDITIONS
The range of conditions and spectacular open space on the beach means that windsurfers and kitesurfers from complete beginner to addicted wave-head can benefit from wonderful, non-gusty winds.
The beach is sandy and the water is clean, there is no shorebreak at any state of tide and you have all the space in the world to perfect that new manoeuvre or just sail about taking in the scenery.
Built in 2006, the building is very modern and withstands the elements well (it is about as close to the water’s edge as it can be!) The clubhouse is, most importantly, very warm and dry with french windows to take advantage of the summer weather.
There are separate male and female changing rooms with hot shower cubicles.
There is also a kitchen with a fridge, microwave, dishwasher and plenty of free tea, coffee, hot chocolate and milk. Members can keep their lunch in the fridge.
There is free WIFI and a lounge with sofas, so you can treat the club house as your second office (and many do!)
There is a static barbecue next to the club that members can use to have barbecues with friends. The 2XS Club run club barbecue nights throughout the season for the members.
2XS has a premium selection of windsurfing, kitesurfing, SUPing and kayaking rental gear which is replaced every year:
- RRD Windsurf Boards

- RRD Kites and Kitesurf Boards

Rescue Jet Ski and Quad
2XS has a (very fast to launch) jet ski and quad setup that is the ideal rescue vehicle for West Wittering’s range of conditions. The 2XS staff are very vigilant and will launch the ski at the drop of a hat.
