Course participation, liability and other very important information
The activity of surfing carries with it a degree of risk both to people and property, even if enjoyed under proper supervision. It is also a strenuous activity that requires those taking part to have a reasonable standard of swimming and fitness. All course members must therefore make us aware of any medical conditions , illnesses or allergies they may have and any prescribed medication they are taking on the booking form at the time of booking. No-one should participate if they have a medical condition such as for example being pregnant. It is down to the participant with a medical condition to check with his or hers Doctor to find out if surfing/surf fitness is within the customers physical and or mental parameters.
All surf hire members must be able to swim at least 50 metres and must in no circumstances be under the influence of any alcohol, drugs or medication at the time of surfing which may adversely affect their physical abilities.
Whereas SG takes all reasonable measures to ensure the safety and good condition of that equipment, course members are responsible for immediately reporting any damage caused to the equipment or which becomes apparent whilst the equipment is in their possession. SG does not seek to limit or exclude any liability for personal injury or loss of life which may occur as a result of its own negligence or that of its employees, officers or agents however, SG assumes no liability in respect of any personal injury, loss, damage, consequential loss or third party claims which occur through no fault of its own, its employees, officers or agents. All other liability or conditions implied by law are excluded to the fullest extent possible.
In the rare event that SG considers sea/weather conditions to be unsuitable for surf instruction and or the Beach lifeguard service raise the red flag, a credit voucher will be issued. Credit for any hires owed can be used within one year from the date of the cancelled lesson. Any hire monies owed must be booked in advance and are subject to availability. No refunds are issued.
