Terms & Conditions of the Service Provider: Point Break Watersports operates a strict NO refund policy on the bookings of all courses. On payment of deposit and confirmation of booking the clients and Point Break Watersports enter into a contract. Under this contract the clients and Point Break are in agreement that each started lessons is considered a lesson done. The client must accept that these are sports that depend very much on weather conditions and therefore the client must be flexible. The client must also understand that the number of places are limited per day, that’s why all bookings must be considered as definitive once payment is done. Fuerteventura is one of the places around the world providing the best frequency of suitable conditions for any kind of water sport, however it is not a perfect science and it is always possible to get unlucky. For example, Point Break Watersports sells Kite and Windsurfing tuition, but can’t sell wind. Why do we practice a non refund policy? In order to provide our services on the highest possible level, we must always have our teams operational, our equipment, vehicles, boat and whole infrastructure ready to execute our activities. When a course is booked a team of people ( instructors, boat captain, etc) and vehicles is put into motion and lack of suitable conditions can not affect our ability to pay our staff and for vehicles we may have engaged to ensure our structure for a particular session will function. This is why we must consider all bookings as definitive and not refundable. In case of lack of conditions, Point break Watersports will provide alternative solutions. What kind of solutions we propose to our clients? It is clear that in case of lack of appropriate conditions the client should not loose any money either. Point Break Watersports offer alternative activities; in case of lack of wind for Kite/windsurf for instance, we offer surf lessons, SUP lessons, wakeboard sessions (minimum 2 people) or rental of SUP or surfing equipment. The client has the right to refuse taking up an alternative activity in which case the client must accept a voucher that will certify his/her credit to be used within 18 months. As not all activities have the same value, an account will be created for the client according to the nature of the sessions he/she has paid for on the original booking. At the end of their stay a balance is made between what has been paid for and what has been effectively done. Point Break Watersports recommends to all customers who may suffer to take precaution against seasickness. NO credit will be given in case of a client no show, cancellation from the client or not being contactable, in case of seasickness or the client refuses to enter the water during the lesson. The clients authorizes Point Break Watersports to introcuce their data in the database of the company in accordance with the statement of the privacy. No personal information will be transmitted to any third part. The client wish to partecipate in lessons with Point Break Watersports and agrees to abide by their rules and safety regulations.
