The OTC is a windsurfing, kitesurfing, wing-foiling and stand up paddling (SUP) centre located right on the water’s edge, within the grounds of the National Sailing Academy on Portland, Dorset.

Accessible at any tide state and exposed to the best wind statistics on the south coast, The OTC has an affiliated RYA/BKSA/AALA accredited school to cater for all abilities, and has the very latest equipment on hand to test.


From grass-roots, to windfoiling and hosting pro-clinics, we have every discipline and pathway in windsurfing covered. Whatever your level, come and get on the water with us at our RYA accredited school.


We are a BKSA accredited kitesurfing school and use the latest equipment and teaching methods (such as BBtalkin’ headsets) to ensure your progression into this exhilarating watersport. A little bit of tuition goes a long way in kitesurfing, and we’re on hand to ensure you enjoy the sport safely. 

Stand Up Paddling

Otherwise known as SUPing, this is as diverse a watersport as they come! We can provide entry level tuition to get you going, making the most of the sheltered coves and corners in our vicinity. Alternatively we have plenty of SUPs (and sit-on kayaks) for you to simply come along and hire.

Wing Foiling

The new kid on the block, with a little toe in most of our other sports, including SUPing, kitesurfing and foiling. Ridiculed by some … until they tried it for themselves, wing foiling opens new and exciting avenues, getting people foil surfing more easily and riding lumps of swell long before waves have even contemplated breaking. This new sport is fast moving and we’ve got the dream location to get you flying with a wing super quickly. Come try it for yourself and understand exactly what the hype is all about. 


We are proud to have been the very first Onewheel stockist in the UK, having worked with Future Motion since 2016. We have the very latest Onewheels and accessories in stock, and on demo in the safe location in front of the centre. Our instructors have been riding Onewheels since the original and will be on hand to help get you experience the most exhilarating ride on land!
