Rules of procedure
ARTICLE 1: INSCRIPTIONS
All enrolment at the surf school will be made on the basis of the enrolment form, which must be duly completed by the parents or legal guardian in the case of a minor, or by the interested person in the case of an adult. The required deposit is 50%.
ARTICLE 2: CANCELLATION OF CLASSES
Group classes can only take place if there are a minimum of 3 trainees. Below, the course is considered an individual course with a different fee. In case of bad weather conditions (lack of waves, rough sea, thunderstorm or pollution) the courses that cannot be taken as part of the subscribed package will be: • replaced by alternative activities: bodysurfing, bodyboarding, stand-up paddle, rowing, beach games, stretching and warm-up specific to surfing, theory courses (video analysis, weather) o, biomechanics etc.) • or postponed to a later date Courses not taken by the client will not be refunded. It will be possible to postpone only one course in the event of an impediment or withdrawal; beyond that, they will not be postponed or reimbursed. An internship started and interrupted will not be reimbursed. Courses cancelled in case of thunderstorm will not be refunded.
ARTICLE 3: RESPONSIBILITY OF MONITORS
Trainees will be taken care of by the instructor (s) from the start of their courses. They will again be under the responsibility of their parents or legal guardians at the end of their courses. Before leaving their children at the surf school, parents will need to make sure that the planned service is happening. The civil liability of the school for its trainees ceases outside school hours. In the case of an itinerant surf course, the student remains under the responsibility of the instructor during the round trip. Personal effects left in the truck or on the beach are the responsibility of the owner.
ARTICLE 4: INSURANCE
Island Surf School and its instructors certify that they have taken out third party liability insurance covering the risks related to their business with Groupama Assurance. All persons enrolled in the surf school will be covered during school hours by their professional insurance in the event that the instructor’s liability is called into question. If the instructor is not responsible, an individual accident is not expected. All these terms and conditions are described in the contract provided by the structure. The school is not liable for any non-pecuniary, accidental or wilful damage caused by third parties during its activities. Our commitment is limited to the services offered. The surf school draws the member’s attention to his interest in taking out a supplementary personal insurance contract with the insurer of his choice, covering personal injuries to which he may be exposed as a result of sporting activities and whose guarantees would be superior to those of the contract with Groupama.
ARTICLE 5: COMMITMENT OF THE STRUCTURE
As part of the package chosen, the school and its instructors are committed to meeting standards in terms of quality of reception, teaching, supervision and security. The instructors are not responsible for any failure to comply with the instructor’s safety instructions. The necessary equipment (combination, boards…) will be provided to the members during the course hours.
ARTICLE 6: COMMITMENT OF ACCESSORIES
The member assures to meet the following requirements for the practice of water sports namely to be able to swim 25m and put his head underwater. By enrolling in the surf school, underage surfers and their parents accept the risks associated with surfing under normal surfing conditions. Medical treatment or health problem should be described to the instructor prior to the session. Participants are responsible for the equipment entrusted to them (boards, paddles, paddles, suits, leashes, lycras…) during lessons and rental hours. In the event of loss, theft or damage, the equipment will be repaired at the expense of the trainee or reimbursed at the purchase value.
ARTICLE 7: TRANSPORT OF STAGEARS ON ITINERATING SURF
The school and its instructors are committed to ensuring the transport of trainees in accordance with the regulations in force (drivers holding the necessary licence, vehicle insurance, maximum number of passengers, clean and in good condition).
ARTICLE 8: RIGHT TO THE IMAGE

ARTICLE 9: ANNEX TO THE RULES OF PROCEDURE
The school and its instructors reserve the right to provide trainees with any additional documentation specific to its operation, including details of the types of services offered, their duration, their distribution over the week, their cost, etc.
