COURSE OFFER, FEES, PROCEDURE

Content, conditions, scope and further information regarding the course offers are announced on the platform within the scope of the course description and can be booked there by registered users. However, the user has no claim to a certain (minimum) number or scope of course offers or a certain type, form or quality of the course offer.
- The organiser is entitled to adapt, change and supplement the course offers on the platform and to announce these changes accordingly on the platform - this does not result in a change of the present GTC.
- The organiser acts as the organiser of the course offers. The contract is concluded by online booking. In the course of the booking, the total amount is due for payment immediately.
- Insofar as changes occur with regard to an already booked surf session (e.g. postponements, cancellations, usage restrictions, etc.), the organiser shall inform the user of this information at the latest 24 hours before the surf session is used.
- Some course offers can only be carried out on condition that a certain minimum number of participants is reached. If the minimum number of participants is not reached, the organiser reserves the right to cancel the surf session / course offer. In such a case, any fees paid in advance by the user will be refunded.
- The safety of the surf sessions and the participants is a key concern for the organiser. Course changes/date changes due to unfavourable weather conditions remain reserved. Should weather conditions, currents, the risk of increased flotsam, official measures or requirements, force majeure, safety reasons or other reasons make the surf session difficult or impossible, the organiser may cancel the session. In the event of such circumstances occurring outside the organiser's sphere of influence, users who have already booked the respective course offer / surf session will receive a voucher for the use of an equivalent event from the course offer at a later date.
- Surf sessions can be cancelled or the schedule changed by the organiser even after the start if weather conditions, currents, the danger of increased flotsam, official measures or requirements, force majeure, safety reasons or other reasons make this necessary. In the event of changes to the schedule, the organiser shall endeavour to offer a substitute service of the same value as far as possible or to continue the surf session immediately after the reason for the hindrance has ceased to exist.
- In the event of cancellation by the organiser for reasons other than those beyond its control, any fees already paid by users shall be refunded.
- The following cancellation regulations apply to course offers bindingly booked by the user, which the organiser grants voluntarily, without acknowledgement of a legal obligation in this respect and revocable at any time:
- Cancellation free of charge up to 30 calendar days before the start of the surf session;
- Cancellation fee of 50% of the total price for the surf session if cancelled in the period of 30 - 14 calendar days before the start of the surf session;
- Cancellation fee of 100% of the total price of the surf session for all later cancellations or no-shows on the day the surf session is taken.
- The organiser reserves the right to charge a processing fee of CHF 15.00 for changes of dates requested by the user. However, there is no legal claim to a change of date for reasons of planning security and the requirement of a minimum number of participants.
- The fees payable by the User can currently be paid using the following means of payment: Online payment (Paypal, credit card and voucher) and cash payment when booking at the organiser's registered office. If the organiser does not receive these fees in full (e.g. as a result of insufficient funds in the account, unjustified objection by the user to a credit card charge, etc.), the user shall, in addition to paying the (difference) amount, also reimburse the costs incurred as a result of this delay, including interest on arrears at the statutory rate.

This is at the discretion of the surf coaches; claims of the affected user against the organiser or its vicarious agents as a result of such a measure are excluded.
- Part of every surf session is a briefing, which is carried out by the surf coaches. Participation in these briefings is compulsory and the instructions given must be followed.
