PRIVACY AND SECURITY POLICY

1) If you read this site, have never surfed, and go off trying to do some of the stunts in videos or emulating what the surf bloggers say, it is not our fault. We accept no responsibility. 2) Do not snake or drop in. Make sure you know what those are before setting out for your first session. 3) Say hi to the other surfers in the line up, and smile. Surfing is a lot more fun for all involved that way.
