Welcome to CWS! Home to a wide range of popular water-based activities including our Aqua Park, Wakeboarding (boat & cable 2.0), Waterskiing, Monoskiing, Stand Up Paddle Boarding and Kayaking. Situated just 5 minutes from Chichester city centre, our freshwater lake measuring around 40 acres, is supplied mainly by The South Downs. 

Come and jump, bounce, climb and slide around our inflatable Aqua Park!

Race with your friends and family around the course and watch them wipe out, or if that's not your thing, leisurely explore the park enjoying our less challenging features - there's something for everyone! The perfect activity for kids parties, team bonding or just a fun day out. 


       Suitable for anyone aged 8+ who can swim 50m unaided with a buoyancy aid. For those under 8, do enquire about our 'Youth' sessions - no more FOMO! 

Fall in love with Wakeboarding, Waterskiing and more behind our boats.

With a designated boat for skiing, boarding and learners we have the right option for you! Our learner boat is equipped with a boom bar making it the easiest way to progress and benefit from our expert tuition. 

If you're still not sold on wakeboarding or waterskiing, we also offer inflatable rides for a fun, action packed, adrenaline fix. Holding up to 10 people, our inflatable rides offer a sure-fire way to ensure some excitement to your day. For those wishing to stay dry, why not purchase a speedboat ride. A unique and ideal experience for any occasion

An exhilarating and energising sport for all those thrill seekers out there, or for those looking for a fun alternative to keep fit.

       Suitable for anyone aged 8+ who can swim 50m unaided with a buoyancy aid.

The perfect paddle-based activity suited to everyone.

Originating from Hawaii, SUP requires a paddle to propel you through the water on a large surf-like board. Paddleboarding around our 40-acre freshwater lake has been described as, “hugely relaxing” and a “serene experience”.

It’s a water sport that doesn’t require a huge amount of practice to get you going and can be enjoyed by everyone. A great compliment alongside one of our other more ‘adrenaline fueled activities’ to wind down, or a great steppingstone into the water sports world. 

       Suitable for anyone aged 8+ who can swim 50m unaided with a buoyancy aid.

A fun, yet leisurely activity to improve your fitness, strength and flexibility. 

All our kayaks here at CWS are sit on top with single or double options, making them ideal for beginners and families, or for those wishing to be gently introduced into water sports. Our boats are both stable and easy to paddle, guaranteeing you a bit of fun. Also, there’s no need to worry about being trapped as they are not enclosed. Whilst you embark on your journey, be sure to check out all the different wildlife around our lake!
