Reactive Watersports was founded in June 1996 by Dave Ewer (RYA level 5 instructor) with years of experience teaching and managing windsurfing shops in the South West area.
Our dreams were to set up a new fresh shop in the South West which would 'React" to the ever changing market. We also wanted to make sure we were "Active" sailors pushing ourselves in the sport we loved hence "Reactive". Reactive has evolved since '96 and Reacted to new sports and many new products. We now involve ourselves in more than just windsurfing (our main core). Being keen wakeboarders with years of experience we have a good range of wakeboards and waterskis, as well as all the other towable toys and paraphernalia. We've also been Kitesurfing quitely since '99.
In the shop we have the largest range of new and used Windsurfing and Wakeboarding gear in the South West as well as Powerkites and Kitesurfing gear. We carry O'neill and Neilpryde wetsuits from toddler size to XXL suitable for all watersports. We also have White stuff, Cult and Reef clothing as well as all sorts of air toys.
Wakeboarding is one of the fastest growing watersport. you can glide across the water, carving from side to side or jumping and riding the wake, and this can all be in your first session!! We can take up to six people at one time, or just rent the boat between two, all trips are timed at the wakeboard location to maximise your time on the water, and of course include equipment, driver, fuel and insurance. Ideal for: Corporate days, after work evening sessions, weekends or week days, and even stag or hen parties. For any further info, or just to book the boat for a session give us a call.
Over the summer we have our RYA recognised Windsurfing school running offering courses for complete beginners through to advanced level 5 and beyond... In addition to lessons we also have a dedicated Test Centre at Siblyback Lake near Liskeard offering everything from kids boards to wider short boards and first time boards. All the gear is rigged and ready to go at the lakeside, with rescue cover and changing facilities available.
Reactive is positioned in the heart of Queen Anne's Battery marina in Plymouth, overlooking Plymouth Sound. You can park right outside our shop, Free!
Shop open 10.00 - 5.30 seven days in season, 5-6 days out of season. Please call for more details. Hope to see you soon!
