This may be accomplished using our on-line reservations system, or requesting via email a PDF form and pre-printing and signing the form for delivery to our staff prior to the lesson.

Surf Lessons Canceled by Student:
Lesson must be canceled 5 days in advance to receive a refund. Cancellations made at least 5 days prior to the start of the lesson will result in a $20 refund fee. The $20 refund fee can go towards a future lesson. Any lesson canceled with fewer than 5 days until the start of the lesson is not able to be refunded, and will result in the full charge of the lesson fee.
Surf Lessons Rebooking:
No charges for lessons rebooked 5 days in advance. Rebookings made at least 5 days prior to the start of the lesson will result in a $20 rebooking fee.
Surf Lessons Canceled by BigFoot Surf:
If Big Foot Surf cancels a lesson for any reason that does not fall under the “Big Foot Surf Weather and Drug Use Policy”, the cost of the lesson will be refunded. Big Foot Surf Weather Policy: Westport is in the PNW, which means that from time-to-time we have been known to get some rain. Frankly, this is fine by us since some of the best surfing conditions happen with some liquid sunshine. But remember, our main priority is to make sure that we all stay safe on the water. It is with this in mind that we retain the right to cancel a lesson if the conditions are too dangerous, or if there is lightening. If a lesson is canceled by Big Foot Surf based on weather, we will reschedule your lesson for a future date. To wrap it up, if it’s just rain, the lesson’s going out–since you were planning on getting wet anyways. Drug Use Policy: If it is deemed that a student may be inhibited or under the influence of drugs or alcohol, the student will not be able to attend the lesson and will not receive a refund. Due to the nature of surfing and the physical and mental demands we do not advise surfing under the influence of drugs or alcohol.
