Activities such as surfing, skiing, scuba-diving, hiking, mountaineering, climbing, cycling, mountain biking, caving, horse-riding and para-gliding, amongst other sports activities, carry a risk. As a consequence, the client accepts all responsibility for any accident, serious or otherwise, suffered by them whilst doing a sporting activity or using sports equipment, and absolves Feral Surf Tours Ltd of all responsibility for these accidents.

  11.  i. Anyone suffering from illness or disability or undergoing treatment for any physical or medical condition must declare the true nature of such condition at the time of booking and make arrangements for the provision of any medication or other treatment required during the tour.

If the chosen holiday includes a cruise or excursion or transfer by boat of any sort the Client must make it known at the time of booking if he / she is unable to swim. This will not prevent the Client from participating in the tour but will enable Feral Surf Tours Ltd to take additional precautions for the Clients safety at such times as may be appropriate.ii.
