Sussex's combination of coast, cliffs, and hilly countryside make it the ideal place for adrenaline sports, both on sea and land. The county provides the perfect environment to enjoy everything from kitesurfing to mountain boarding, and everything in between – with unbeatable facilities and training schools to match.
The undulating Sussex Downs are great for mountain biking and mountain boarding. Paragliding and kiteboarding are also popular activities on these windy hills.
Motocross centres and tracks are scattered across East Sussex, and can be enjoyed by amateurs and professionals alike. This off-road motorcycling is the ultimate thrill experience as you speed through mixed terrains at full throttle. The sport is available in the Devil's Dyke area of East Sussex. Rock climbing, abseiling, and gorge walking offer a challenging, but fun, day out. Manoeuvring across cliff faces and waterfalls provides a rewarding experience combined with gorgeous views of the Sussex woodlands in the High Weald and East Grinstead.
Kitesurfing has rapidly developed into the fastest growing watersport around, and can be learnt and enjoyed at beaches across the Sussex coast. Kitesurfing schools in Lancing and Camber will give you a great introduction to the sport, helping you learn the basics before mastering the wind and waves.
Windsurfing and kayaking are a great skill to learn in the summer months, especially in the safety and security of Hove's reputable lagoon. Lagoon Watersport School teaches people of all ages and skill levels how to sail and surf, with courses endorsed by the RYA. Brighton and Hove is a great location to master the basics before the most brave among you can take on the open seas!
Last but not least try the high octane thrills of Go Kart racing, 200cc engines capable of reaching up to 40 miles per hour although, at only two inches off the ground it may seem a lot faster. There are state of the art TeamSport circuits available in Crawley and Brighton.
