All lessons (surfing, and surf skate) carry a degree of risk both to people and property, even if under proper supervision by qualified instructors. It is also a strenuous activity that requires those taking part to have a reasonable standard of swimming and fitness.

Our lessons carry moderate risk of minor cuts and bruises and a very small risk of more serious incidents. However, all our instructors follow robust operational procedures to reduce these risks as much as possible without impeding the adventurous nature of the activity.

All customers participating in lessons must make the school aware of any medical conditions, illnesses or allergies which might affect the customers ability to safely participate in the lesson or course. 


No one should participate in a lesson if they are pregnant or suffering from a heart condition.

We also expect customers to follow instructions at all times for your own safety.

All customers must be able to swim at least 50 m comfortably.

No customer should participate in the lessons while under the influence of drugs, alcohol or medication that might impede judgment or motor skills.

All other liability or conditions implied by law are excluded to the fullest extent possible. 


In the rare event we cannot hold a booked lesson due to the weather or surf conditions, the surf school will offer an alternative sport, an alternative lesson date, issue a voucher of equal value or provide a refund. Credit vouchers should be used within 12 months of the cancellation. Refunds will be processed within 30 days from the day of the cancellation. All postponed orders will be deleted, if not used, after 365 days.
