Terms & conditions

Our team is responsible to provide services in accordance with the information displayed on our website and to do our best for your comfortable and pleasant stay. In case of bad weather, absence of waves or other natural factors that don’t depend on us, we’ll try to propose alternative recreational activities. Keep in mind that the ocean is a force of nature, and that despite historic trends and modern forecasting science, we can’t control waves or guarantee certain conditions on any particular day. It’s important to respect the waves in all their forms and to recognise that some days will be too big, some days will be too small, and some days will be perfect.
