Lamiroy Surf Academy Terms and Conditions

Please read these terms and conditions carefully.

What is my financial commitment?

1. The Ticket to Ride Surf Academy Limited (hereafter TTRide SA Ltd) handles the memberships and the associated lump-sum or monthly standing order membership fees on behalf of Lamiroy Surf Academy (LSA)

2. Memberships are a minimum term of 12 months.

5. When paying in monthly installments, membership payments are made monthly from the date of your booking. Your membership benefits will be valid from the date you join for the duration of 12 months. Where these dates differ your membership payments will continue beyond the duration of your membership to ensure 12 monthly payments [to the equivalent of the appropriate annual membership fee] are received.

Your membership will automatically renew on a monthly basis at the end of your initial 12 month term.

What if I want to cancel my membership or stop my payments?
