REGISTRATION AND PAYMENT > Surf Lessons
The registration can be done in written or oral form and occurs by the applicant for all named or listed participants.

If the participant has registered for the surf course including accommodation, he/she has to transfer 200€ per person as a deposit on the account of Rapa Nui Aloha S.L. The claim of participation is valid with the incoming payment. The remaining sum needs to be transferred two weeks prior to the start of the travel to the account of Rapa Nui Aloha S.L. As soon as the deposit is on the bank account, Rapa Nui Aloha S.L. will send an invoice per E-Mail, which serves as a booking confirmation. If the participant registers for a surf course excluding accommodation, the contract is valid with acceptance through Rapa Nui Aloha S.L. The payment is due on the first surf course day.
ELIGIBILITY REQUIREMENTS/ OBLIGATORY SUPERVISION
The participant explicitly declares that there are no concerns from a medical point of view for the practice of surfing. Swimming skills and athletic capacity are requirements for the participation. The course participants need to obey to the instructions of the surf teachers. In case of irresponsible behavior, which jeopardizes the health or image of the participants or Rapa Nui Aloha S.L., the participant can be suspended from the course. In this case Rapa Nui Aloha S.L. will not refund the paid amount.

The participation in the surf course, the travel, the claiming of the website listed services and the stay happen on your own responsibility.
