Terms and Conditions



All bookings are subject to the following Terms & Conditions.

Please read the Booking Conditions and information contained in our booking form/brochure/website/email confirmation carefully, as these form the basis of your contract with Surfvival Surf School, and set out the respective rights and obligations of both parties. In the following Booking Conditions, ‘you’ refers to the Party Leader and ‘we’ or ‘us’ or ‘the Company’ refers to Surfvival Surf School.

By submitting your booking, you represent to us that you have the authority to make the booking on behalf of your party and that you accept, on behalf of you and/or your party, that the booking is subject to these Terms and Conditions. A contract exists as soon as we issue our Booking Confirmation Form.


All course prices are subject to change without advance notice, however, once you have made your booking and paid for a course the price will not normally be subject to any changes.


If, after your full payment/deposit has been received, you wish to change your course in any way, we will do what we can to reasonably accommodate such changes, but it may not always be possible. If you or any member of your party is unable to proceed with the course, you can transfer the booking to a substitute person, provided they satisfy all the conditions applicable to the original booking and your request is received by us at least 2 days prior to commencement of the course. Any request for changes must be made in writing and signed by the Party Leader. You will be liable to pay any costs and/or expenses that we incur in making this alteration, which will be detailed in booking alteration email. Customers wishing to add people to a party after the initial booking will only be able to do so if sufficient spaces are available. Availability should not be assumed and you should first contact us to check availability. The price of your course may increase or decrease to reflect your requested changes. Note that a reduction in party members attending a course will not necessarily result in a reduction of the price of your booking.


Any outstanding payment amount, if applicable, is to be paid to Surfvival Surf School directly upon arrival and before any services commence.
For inquiries regarding changes to an existing reservation, please contact Surfvival Surf School directly.

We are not responsible for lost, stolen and/or damaged personal items you bring with to the lesson.
The maximum duration for a surf lesson is 1h and 30min. Lessons may end before the full 1h and 30min due to a variety of external factors including, but not limited to weather conditions, currents, strong winds, rips and tides. We do, however, guarantee a lesson of at least 1 hour in duration. No refunds are offered for completed work.


All participants without a Company-provided hotel transfer service must arrive to the Surfvival office/ Meeting point at the beach at least 15 minutes before the course start time. Any late arrivals will result in shorter course. Surfvival surf school is not obliged to extend the lesson if participants arrive late to the course.

The Party Leader is responsible for providing, at the time of booking, the Company with any known potential medical conditions that may affect the personal safety of any party members and for notifying, in writing, the Company of any special needs of any party members.


We reserve the right, in our absolute discretion, to terminate without further notice, the booking arrangements of any client who refuses to comply with the instructions or orders of the Company staff or other responsible person. This includes those whose behavior, in the opinion of the Company staff or other responsible person, is likely to cause distress, danger, injury or annoyance to other clients, staff, or any third party and/or damage to property. Upon such termination our responsibility for your booking ceases and we shall not be held liable for any additional costs incurred.

Any customer making a last minute booking is solely responsible to contact us directly for a confirmation. This applies to bookings made within 24 hours of the lesson starting time.

It is therefore, the customer’s sole responsibility to contact us directly, via the following two methods:

Whatsapp: +306989805037

Our aim is to provide you with an enjoyable and hassle-free surf lesson.

If your complaint cannot be resolved under such condition, please notify us in writing/email to [email protected], immediately upon your return. We strongly recommend that you communicate any problem to our staff without delay. If such problems aren’t made known immediately to the Company, we will have been deprived of the opportunity to investigate and rectify your complaint whilst you were on the course, which may affect your rights under this contract. The Company will make every effort to provide suitable alternatives but will not be held liable for changes made or caused by outside influences. Disputes arising out of, or in connection with this contract that cannot be amicably settled may be referred to arbitration, if you so wish, under a special scheme that is administered independently by the Chartered Institute of Arbitrators.
