Boardworx started its journey back in 1982. When founded the company name was Whitstable Windsurfing, we have evolved over the years from just selling windsurfers, and so did our name.
We started kitesurfing back in the day on Flexifoil and Wipika kites and had to make our own boards so we have seen the progression of the sport from day one, gathering a wealth of knowledge along the way.
We are one of the UK longest running shops and are based less than 100 meters from Whitstable sea front. One of the best kitesurfing locations in the south east.
We are UK dealers for all the popular kitesurfing and windsurfing brands Duotone, F-One, Slingshot, Severne, Starboard, Ezzy and Core kites. We have also range of wingfoiling or wingboarding gear. This new water sport is growing and developing very quickly with its own brands like Ensis, Fanatic and F-one all leading the way.
Paddle boarding has grown over the years and Whitstable is a very popular location. Here at Boardworx we stock Red paddle, Sandbanks and Fanatic paddle boards along with all the accessories you may need. If you would like to hire a paddle board if you visit Whitstable then please check out Oystercoast watersports. If you are visiting the sea side of Whitstable, then maybe take a fun boat trip out to see the seals or visit the Maunsell sea forts with Whitstable boat tours.
All our staff have a range of watersports knowledge and are happy to answer any questions you may have.
