I suspect not on the basis that surfers and outboard engines tend not to mix well in the same water space!

Eldest son is looking forward to the opening. Any idea of the latest time-scale?

You often see jetskis in the surf around the pier , but I think they will have the 'fun' police out to stop anyone with an engine getting anywhere near it. I was looking at getting a jetski again just to have fun in the waves. There are split schools of thought over if it will actually work anyway , and how ling it wil be before it gets washed away. I dont think all that sand will las long even inside whatever they are using.

I think you can get as much fun going over the ledge south of Hengistbury in the right weather/ tide
