We are a small family business that operates under strict licence regulations imposed by the City of Stirling and Surfing Australia. Our licence stipulates we can have very few students at any one time. So we don’t hog the beach.
We get booked out every session and if you don’t turn up for your pre-booked lesson; we still have to pay our staff, licence fees, insurance and expenses.
We are the same as other businesses e.g. If you buy a ticket to the movies, football, tennis, cricket etc. and don’t attend under any circumstance including illness, injury, flat battery, called into work, bad Uber / bus driver etc. No business’ gives you a free ticket or free seat at the next available event. SORRY – ALL SURF SCHOOLS HAVE THIS SAME POLICY.
