The Official Test Centre

The Official Test Centre (OTC) is the windsurfing, kitesurfing and stand up paddling (SUP) centre located right on the water’s edge, within the grounds of the National Sailing Academy on Portland.

Portland Harbour is one of the best locations in Europe for all three watersports, being accessible at any tide state and exposed to the best wind statistics on the south coast. The OTC has an affiliated RYA/AALA accredited school to cater for all abilities, from beginner to pro, and a shop on site so that you can buy all the latest kit and water sports apparel.

The OTC team are experts in their field and test for an international magazine (hence the name of the centre) and are always on hand to provide friendly impartial advice. The centre is also the UK’s main stockist of OneWheel – the latest land-based electric board sport to capture the imagination of many. Come along to the centre and try it for yourself.
