Rustington has a thriving surfing and kite surfing community. The shallow water and southwesterly winds straight off the Channel make for perfect conditions for these world championship hopefuls.
Recently 2 kite surfers attained worldwide recognition by ‘flying’ over Worthing Pier – a very dangerous trick but beautifully executed.
Since Victorian times Rustington has continued to grow in size and has earned itself a colourful history along the way. The village still boasts an array of flint and thatched cottages and two Conservation areas, which add to its character and charm.
We’re fortunate in Rustington to have a very good shopping centre with free car parking. Shops include some high street brands such as Boots, Iceland, Superdrug and Holland & Barret. There are also many independents such as Cook, selling fine haute cuisine, but frozen, food, a butcher, a delicatessen, a bakery and 2 greengrocers.
There is a Co-op supermarket and a Tesco Express in the village and Sainsbury’s, Tesco and Waitrose stores within a couple of miles. There is even a M&S at the local petrol station!
