Walkin’ On Water Surf School – COVID Participant List
Thank you very much for your booking with us. We are super excited to have you surf with us in your upcoming lesson you have booked.
During the COVID-19 time, for us to be confident of operating safely, maximising everyone’s health and reducing the chance of virus spread, we have implemented a number of operational procedures and requirements for our Surf School instructors as well as our Surf School Participants. These measures have been implemented for us to meet the Government regulations and therefore allow us to be able to operate and provide surf lessons during the COVID period.
It is vital please that you read and follow the steps below prior to, on arrival and during your surf lesson with us. We very much thank you in advance and appreciate your cooperation.
