About us

As you've probably guessed, we are a club dedicated to the watersports of kitesurfing and wakeboarding! Most of our members (including our President) didn't even know what either of these sports were before joining us at LSE, and now they can't get enough of being on the water! As a fully inclusive club, we welcome everyone who wants to join us; whether you are a beginner or experienced, fresher or postgrad, there will always be a place for you in our weekly activities and trips!

We wakeboard every Wednesday at WakeUp Docklands, which is less than a 30 minute commute from campus! Kitesurfing takes place in Kent, around an hour away on the train. With space for both beginners and experts, we make sure everyone gets some time on the line followed by a few pints by the water! Thanks to the support of the lovely expert instructors at the Docklands, you'll see a huge improvement in your abilities week to week.  We're also a super social bunch, and so with us you will get fully immersed in LSE's social scene, with opportunities for weekly socials including club dinners, pub crawls, the infamous Carol & of course our weekly night outs at Sway! 

What most people don’t realise is how exhilarating the two sports are, bouncing over waves at high speed while trying to control a kite and your board can really get your heart beating. This can provide a needed break from the academic stress of university and you will have a laugh doing it. Now is the time to try new things so sign up today and we guarantee you will have a good time.

So, don’t make the wrong decision. Sign up for a social life, Sign up for a fun sport, sign up for Kitesurf and Wakeboarding!


Due to the exclusivity of the sports, it can end up being very expensive (£100 for a single kite surf lesson!). However, for just £40 (full membership fee) you will have the chance to take multiple free lessons in wakeboarding and 1 free lesson in kitesurfing which would normally cost you around £150. Along with this you will have access to £9000 worth of equipment, large discounts on every session you do after your free ones and will be invited to all social events we hold. On the other hand, if you are just interested in the social side of our club then you can purchase a social membership for just £9. This will mean you can still be involved in the club but will not be offered any free sessions.

Events and Activities

In MT you will have the chance to take part in a number of Wakeboarding sessions that will usually be occurring on Wednesday afternoons and a couple of kitesurfing trips on the weekends throughout the season. Then from March, for the whole of summer term we will be doing many trips during the week to wakeboard and day trips to kite surf in the sun!

Along with this we will be having weekly socials including club dinners, pub crawls, movie nights & of course our weekly night outs at Sway! So there is something for everyone to attend.

Don't miss out and grab your membership today!
