Health acknowledgments

Everyone engaging the sport of surf should be aware that this is a physically demanding nature sport and so be responsible for their own health/physical conditions (ex: asthma, heart problems, injuries, etc).

We always advice people that never tried surfing to engage in a surf lesson to better understand the physical demand of surfing as well as possible dangers, main rules and behaviour.
