Calshot Spit

This unique spit of land that’s almost totally surrounded by water offers some of the best Kitesurf and Paddleboarding conditions on the south coast. Large lagoons combined with reliable sea breezes produce perfect conditions for learning to Kitesurf whilst paddleboarders will love cruising along the sheltered waterways and exploring the nearby beauty of the New Forest National park.

We also have the added advantage of being on a private site and so rarely experience crowded beaches.

Calshot Spit is a fantastic location for kitesurfing, Wingfoil and Paddleboarding with different conditions from flat water to rolling swell at high tide

Calshot Spit

Perfect for Kitesurfing, paddleboarding and Wingfoil

Calshot Spit is a one-mile long sand and shingle bank, near the village of Calshot, located on the southern bank of the open end of Southampton Water, on the Hampshire coast.

The beach forms part of a mile long shingle spit which reaches out into the mouth of Southampton Water. From here you get a great view of the ships coming and going from one of the UK’s largest ports.

The beach also offers panoramic views of the Solent, Southampton and the Isle of Wight and is the perfect location for all the Nomadic sports we are specialists in.

On the other side of the spit is an extensive salt marsh which is home to a wealth of birds and other wildlife.

What Our Friends Say


Right, I was looking for a kite sport a bit less complicated than kite surfing which is, in my opinion, a 2 person sport (taking off and landing) and carries more risk (to yourself and others). Wing surfing, I feel, is a little more refined, so decided to give it a go. My plus points, inflatable kite and board – easy to transport. Wow factor – you can also foil with a wing and that looks amazing. Easy to set up, easy to pack away, easy to transport. Persevering, I am told its the key. Let’s hope so. :o)

What a fantastic experience. I was bought the taster paddle boarding session for my birthday. I was a little apprehensive about being cold and despite having my own wetsuit (which wasn’t ‘winter’ grade) staff loaned me a thicker one and even a waterproof jacket to go over the top.

Staff were all very knowledgeable and extremely helpful. Safe environment and made everybody feel welcome. Cannot recommend these guys enough.
