Our general terms and conditions apply to all our surf courses.
All Biarritz Surf Training’s instructors have followed a training validated by the French State and are holders of a valid authorisation to teach surfing and its related disciplines. The services are provided individually or in groups. The good progress of the courses supposes a homogeneity of the level of the surfers. Given the impossibility for Biarritz Surf Training instructors to check the level of each student prior to registration, the latter is responsible for the choice of the technical level he/she has selected according to the grid proposed on the Biarritz Surf Training website. Biarritz Surf Training reserves the right to reincorporate a surfer whose level does not correspond to his or her declaration into a group better suited to his or her level, subject to the capacities of the other groups. Learning to surf takes place in a specific environment with a random character. The practice of surfing therefore requires the student to personally take care of his/her own safety and that of others. The instructor’s responsibility is limited to an obligation of means. It is up to the student to respect the instructor’s instructions. The student is solely responsible for his equipment. Biarritz Surf Training is not responsible for accidents caused by surfers who participate in the course.
Any registration in the Biarritz Surf Training structure will be done using the registration form either online on the website or in paper form at the reception.
