Private surf lessons may be booked for as long as you like.
Our surf instructors are all professionals and will have final say over the wave conditions.
In the event of bad weather (Thunder or Lightning) the surf lesson or clinic will be rescheduled. Rain, cold air (we have wetsuits), or cloudy skies do not constitute bad weather.
Rain cleans up the surf making it better therefore we do not cancel lessons or clinics due to rain.
For each clinic or private lesson you attend, we suggest arriving at least 15 minutes early.
Our surf clinics are open to the first 16 people to sign up however we reserve the right to increase that quantity if we so choose so long as we maintain an ideal 5:1 beginner student to instructor ratio.
Always bring sunscreen, a swimsuit, a towel, water, a light snack, and any other items you might want while you are at the beach.
Confirmation - as we will make every effort to confirm your surfing lesson service the night before or in some cases depending on the service two nights before; however it is ultimately your responsibility to get in touch with us if you feel that you have missed or not received your confirmation phone call. If you have not heard from an FSL representative by 7:00 pm the evening before your scheduled surfing lesson service then you probably have missed your call - so in that case please immediately call either 561-625-5375 to get confirmed.

Thank you for scheduling your surfing lesson with Florida Surf Lessons. Since
we run an extremely high quality program based on limited space and tight
margins our cancellation policy goes as follows:
1) Deposits and payments are refundable if ocean and weather conditions do no
permit us to run the lessons.
2) There is no refund for arriving late or leaving early. There are no
partial refunds for any services.
3) If you cancel a lesson more than 48 hours prior to a lesson you will be given your
deposit back minus $25 OR 25% of the deposit, whichever is greater. This is done to cover the cost of our
merchant credit card fees and administrative costs. If cancel a lesson less than
48 hours prior to your lesson time or if you do not show up for a lesson you
will lose your deposit. If you reschedule or change a lesson time or date there
will be a $25 administrative fee charged.
*Please note that reservations for special events may only be rescheduled based
upon event status and or availability and at our sole discretion. Any changes in
group reservations will be charged a $25.00 reprocessing fee. Surf Clinics, Surf
Camps, and Surf Trips are considered special events. Group events that can not
be run or completed due to lightning, too small or too large of surf will
forfeit 25% of the total lesson price as a means to cover our costs of booking
and instructor time commitments.
For any group event there will be a charge based of the quoted number of students. If the number of students becomes less than what was originally stated we will need a two week notice of any changes. Any changes of a fewer number of students made less than two weeks prior to the event will result in the client being charged in full for the amount of students originally submitted. This is done as a means to allocate our instructors and resources properly and timely.
Traffic in South and certain parts of Central Florida can be very unpredictable. We have had students miss lessons and show up late to lessons due to congested traffic. Please plan accordingly especially if you are driving from the Miami or Orlando area.
We do not grant refunds or reschedule lessons for any late arrivals. Payment is your final confirmation; you will not receive any further notification.
Participants under the age of 18 will need to make sure a legal guardian is present to sign a liability form. We can arrange to fax this form beforehand if a guardian will not be in attendance.
Parking at the various surf breaks we teach at sometimes can be difficult. Please allow a minimum of 30 minutes to arrive and find a parking spot.
Gratuity is not expected but always appreciated.
