Course Participation, Liability and Other Important Information
The activity of surfing carries with it a degree of risk both to people and property, even if enjoyed 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.
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 in any surfing lesson if they are suffering from a heart condition or if they are pregnant. All course 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 the lesson which may adversely affect their physical abilities.
All course members must agree to abide to all instructions and decisions that Harlyn Surf School and its instructors make in order to secure the safety and comfort of all participants. Course members will have the use of Harlyn Surf School equipment during their lessons. Whereas Harlyn Surf School 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. Harlyn Surf School 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, Harlyn Surf School 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 Harlyn Surf School considers sea conditions to be unsuitable for surf instruction, it will give credit for any lessons owed. Credit for any lessons owed can be used within one year from the date of the missed lesson. Any lessons owed must be booked up to 14 days in advance and are subject to availability.
