For it:
- Lots of trees (in case you like that sort of thing)
- Nice little sailing club with helpful staff and a small shop for kit emergencies
- RYA courses
- 40 mins drive from Bromley
- Great for kids to learn as water is always flat

Challenges for adult windsurfers:
- Small
- Wind is usually VERY gusty, with lots of wind shadows and some weird cyclonic effect when bouncing off the surrounding tree walls (I might be making this last thing up)
- Fresh water
- S/SW/W winds make it hard to launch due to trees and narrow, west-facing launching area. On the upside, if any of the club staff is out on a boat you could get a free lift to the centre of the lake.
