Cancellation by you

Psyched Paddleboarding operates a 24 hour cancellation policy on our SUP activities. Should you cancel your session after the 24 hour window has closed, you will be charged for the session and not issued a replacement session.  No refunds are given for missed or cancelled sessions.

If you cancel before the 24 hour minimum notice period you can reschedule by contacting us.  All rescheduled sessions are subject to availability. 

Changes or cancellation by us

We reserve the right to make changes at any time to the session and services we provide if they become necessary due to circumstances beyond our control.

In the event of cancellation by us we will offer an alternative activity, date or credit note (valid for a year).

Weather

Sadly we cannot control the weather. In the event that the weather is unsuitable Psyched Paddleboarding will provide suitable safe alternative. In particular, customers accept that the itinerary stated in the trip details is indicative only and not a guarantee that a particular route will be followed or place reached. Whilst we endeavour to carry out our SUP sessions, minimum numbers, instructor availability and weather conditions, if it is very windy or there is torrential rain, we have to reschedule your session with us.  We will always contact you to advise you as soon as we are able to discuss the options with you. We advise guests to hire dry suits when it is chilly to ensure they stay warm and dry during the activity. Please contact Psyched Paddleboarding for recommended hire companies of drysuits.

Paddleboarding venue

Psyched Paddleboarding will meet you at the agreed paddleboarding venue, this will be confirmed 1 day prior to the activity as we need to monitor the weather forecast closely as otherwise it can affect the activity as stated above.

Session Timings

We run 3 sessions a day starting from 09:00 - 11:00, 12:00 - 14:00, 15:00 - 17:00 and in the summer season 18:00 - 20:00. Please ensure you arrive in time as the session starts promptly which includes briefing, distributing kit, safety briefing, instruction on the water, getting changed and tea and biscuits. If you are late, it not only impacts you and other people booked onto the session and reduces your time on the water.

We are happy to provide a copy of our certificate should you need one. Bookings DO NOT include personal travel or accident insurance.
