Our cancellation Policy

Stoked kitesurfing and its members reserve the right to cancel or reschedule lessons at any time due to:
- Poor wind
- Poor weather conditions
- Poor Beach conditions
- Unseen mechanical or equipment problems
- Too strong/dangerous wind conditions, lessons will be halted if wind is over 25knots or turns off-shore.
- If it is decided the student is not of able body due to intoxication in which case there will be no refund.

If on the day of your lesson and there is poor weather/beach conditions, I.e. No wind, we simply reschedule to another day that suits you, no fees apply.
If on the day the lesson has to be halted due to poor weather/beach conditions, I.e. Wind dies out after the first hour, we simply pause the lesson, reschedule the remaining duration to another day and the student pays the difference to make it a two hour lesson. No extra fees apply.

The Instructor/Operation Manager/Skipper has the final call.
Finally for the safety of all those on board or the beach, if the conditions are unsafe we do not carry out our lessons.
