Share the Aloha Spirit Policy

Remember the keyword when surfing this is... Aloha!!  Situations not included in the list below will be handled on a case-by-case basis.

All services will be conducted at the scheduled time unless ocean/weather conditions warrant otherwise.  Aqua Surf reserves the right to cancel/reschedule any service if we believe ocean/weather conditions are dangerous or not ideal for learning.  Consequently, a full refund will be issued if rescheduling is not possible.

Our team prefers when you book online, because most of our team is helping students stay stoked on the beach.  Each participating student must sign a liability form the day of the service, or Aqua Surf, reserves the right not to provide the service.


Rescheduling Lessons
Once you book your lesson online you'll receive a confirmation email.  If you wish to change your lesson time, date, or location select the "Change / Cancel Appointment" button in your confirmation email.  Next select the "Reschedule" button to proceed.  Rescheduling is allowed 24 hours before your appointment starts.  You may manually reschedule your appointments online (up to 24 hours beforehand) without any fee or penalty.

  • Our online scheduling software is easy to use, and we are happy to help walk you through using it. If you wish for our office to reschedule your appointments via phone/email a $5 convenience fee (per appointment) may apply.

  • Same day services, or appointments that start in less than 24 hours are not eligible for rescheduling. On occasion our team can work aloha magic (not guaranteed), and can reschedule you with a single processing fee of $39. Please contact us and we'll see what we can do!

Cancelling Lessons
You can click the "Change / Cancel Appointment" button in your confirmation email.  If you would like to reschedule for a different date and transfer over any payments made, opt for the rescheduling option instead.  After an appointment is cancelled it cannot be un-cancelled (cancellation is permanent).

  • 100% refund, minus $39 processing fee, when cancelling with 72 or more hours notice

  • 50% refund, minus $39 processing fee, when cancelling with 48 or more hours notice

  • 0% refund when cancelling with less than 48 hours notice from your lesson time, but you may reschedule

Lesson Packages
You may purchase a discount lesson package instead of paying for lessons one at a time.  After purchasing, you may print/email packages as a gift.  Packages expire twelve months from the date of purchase.  On occasion, and within a reasonable time period our surfers can conjure the aloha spirit (not guaranteed), and extend your package for a single processing fee of $50.  Please contact us and we'll see what we can do!

You will receive a 100% refund, minus $50 processing fee, if cancelling within 30 days of the initial purchase.  Packages are non-refundable thereafter.  In the event of a refund, lessons already taken from the package will be deducted from the refund (at the one-time lesson rate).
