Poole Watersports Festival

Poole Watersports Festival takes place in June each year and is an amazing free event, with loads going on. Based at The Watersports Academy in Sandbanks, Poole Harbour, the event is put on by the local shops including SUP Inflatables, H2O Sports and The Watersports Academy.


Sandbanks is absolutely buzzing over the weekend of Poole Watersports Festival.  Lined up along the edge of the harbour are stands from some of the biggest watersports brands, including Fanatic, Red Paddle Co, RRD and JP. There are many of the latest paddleboards available to demo, so it’s a great opportunity to get on the water and to try out a variety of boards. Throughout the weekend free taster sessions are running so that newbies can have a go at paddleboarding for the first time, plus a series of fun SUP races are held for those who like to get competitive!
