Risk of Surfing
Like everything in life, surfing can be a dangerous activity if done the wrong way. It is important you surf smart, you surf with others, you know where you are surfing, etc. Watch for rips, sharks, and other sharp or stingy things that can hurt you and others in the water. Don’t cause trouble, don’t be a dick, and always respect others. Use of our products like our surfboards are at your own risk and we cannot be held responsible for your actions through the use of our products.

We might change the words here from time to time, but because it is so difficult to inform the whole world every time we do it, sorry but we reserve the right to do it without your prior notification.
