STAND-UP PADDLEBOARDING AND SURFING ARE EXTREME SPORTS!!!
Salty Dog Paddle is a volunteer-based IRS approved 501(c)(3) public charity. Our tour guides are volunteers for the charity. Therefore, when you embark on a paddle or surf lesson you are accepting responsibility for yourself, your pet, or minor children (if present). We do not make any money on these activities and do not have paid staff.
The funds we receive are a donation towards the animals we support and the boards we use have been donated by our sponsor surf shops. Do do not offer refunds or rainchecks if you cancel. We will issue a credit or refund if we cancel due to weather conditions (heavy rain or wind and/or lightning).
You assume all risks involved since volunteers are not agents of Salty Dog Paddle. Our volunteers cannot guarantee your safety or those in your group.
Rentals are only for proficient paddlers and expert swimmers. If you cannot paddle with ease you MUST have a tour guide.
If the volunteer issuing the board feels you cannot paddle on your own (are either too inexperienced or unfit), they may either require you to purchase a tour or refuse to issue the equipment and you will NOT be eligible for a refund.
Please also note that:
IF YOU DAMAGE A BOARD YOU AGREE THAT YOU WILL BE RESPONSIBLE FOR REPAIRS.
CHILDREN: Must be at least 16 years old or if 10 – 15 must be proficient swimmers (can swim 1 length of an Olympic-size swimming pool). Children may NOT use a rental board without an adult also on the board with them.
