Here at Poseidon quality customer service and an honest attitude towards business is our number one aim. We try our hardest to be as fair as possible in every situation and invite customers to read our general T&cs below. 


School

  1. We pride our self on offering the best service possible at Poseidon, but due to the nature of the sports we specialise in there is an important element of safety and weather to consider.

  2. Poseidon will always operate with safety as our priority, we reserve the right to cease activity if safety is compromised at anytime.

  3. Kitesurf training is weather dependent, having booked a session the ‘go ahead’ will be given by phone, sms or email one day before a course is scheduled to begin, based on the weather forecast.

    a) If the forecast is uncertain ‘students’ will be notified that we’ll make dynamic decisions on the day of activity.

    b) If the weather forecast is deemed too unsuitable for a productive session we will cancel training and offer alternative dates for rescheduling. Alternatively we can offer a refund

  4. Bookings are confirmed in our diary on receipt of payment though our online booking system and payment through stripe, a confirmation email will be sent to confirm.

  5. Should a pre-booked course be cancelled from our end due to adverse weather or operational issues we will offer an alternative date or a full refund.

  6. Courses started, but unfinished due to changing weather will be offered remaining ‘lost time’ as a credit.

  7. Cancellations from the customer should be made three days prior to training to be offered an alternative date or full refund.

    a) cancellations made closer than three days will incur a 25% fee.

    b) cancellations made one day prior to a course will incur a 50% fee.

    c) ‘no shows’ or last minute cancellations will not be offered a refund or rescheduling.

  8. Refunds on bookings made online will be processed through the same software, this can take up to seven days to complete.

  9. Credit notes issued will be valid for twelve months.

  10. ‘Students’ should arrive at least fifteen minutes early for their training. Whilst we will try to be flexible, we cannot guarantee to make up lost time due to customer lateness.

  11. Rental of kite equipment may be offered to ‘safely independent’ kiters who carry third party liability kitesurf insurance, unlike lessons, they accept personal liability for other people and the equipment they’re hiring.

    a) we reserve the right to deny or cancel rental at any time.

    b) persons not flying responsibly for themselves, others or the kit, will be issued warnings. If undesirable behaviour continues we may cancel hire with no refund at any time.
