We can only make changes to your booking 20 days prior to the event. Anything within this time we are unable to adjust. We will make every effort to arrange any changes you request for your booking, however any changes to your booking will incur a standard administration fee of £40 fee for a Women + Waves Coaching Weekend which is payable immediately.

Surf conditions

Our camps are selected for the quality they offer but as a company we are not responsible for poor surf or bad weather. We select our locations so they perform above average and that they offer good natural environment but if no surf occurs then we can not offer compensation or alternatives. We provide details of conditions on our website introductory pages but it is your responsibility to ensure that all conditions are researched by you and that you are happy with the resort selection.

Weather / Surf Conditions Women + Waves Weekends

In the event of flat waves or stormy conditions forecast for a Women + Waves coaching weekend a voucher will be presented to attend a future weekend. This must be confirmed and called by a member of a Women + Waves/Newquay Activity Centre team member. The organisers will supply as much notice as is possible under the circumstances. If only one or two of the sessions during a coaching weekend present un-ride able conditions a voucher can be supplied for these sessions. Alternatively other activities can be offered such as a Stand Up Paddleboard lesson or other coaching activities. When it’s too small for surfing it’s an incredible time to go Stand Up Paddleboarding around our gorgeous coastline.

Environmental Dangers

We try our best to ensure safety comes first always but natural things will occur and caution must be taken at times. It is understood that you agree to these dangers when booking.
