Policies

GENERAL

Policy Update Effective August 2024:  No Surfing or Activities on Check-In Day, Only on Check-Out Day.

– Check-in day is designated for guests arriving and engaging in the surf briefing scheduled at 5 PM. It is important to note that guests are not permitted to commence surfing until they have successfully completed their surfing briefing. This ensures a comprehensive understanding of safety protocols and guidelines before venturing into the surfing activities.

– As surfing is not scheduled on check-in days, guests are encouraged to take advantage of surfing on check-out days. However, it is essential to plan travel arrangements accordingly. Please be aware that the departure and return times for surfing activities are contingent upon tides and conditions, and they may not align with your preferred departure time. In situations where scheduling conflicts arise, LMBK cannot be held responsible, and pricing remains unchanged. We appreciate your understanding and cooperation in adapting to the dynamic nature of surfing schedules.

Check-In Day Surfing Restrictions (Effective Jan 1st 2024):

New Guest Surf Briefing: Surf briefing is scheduled at 5 PM daily for new guests. Guests can choose to either participate in activities or attend the briefing. The briefing will not be delayed to accommodate late arrivals, such as those returning from a sunset trip. While attendance is optional, we highly recommend guests join the briefing.

Check-Out Day Activities:

On check-out days, guests who haven’t participated in surfing, skating, or sunset activities can join these on their departure day. However, participation in yoga, surf fit, or family dinner is not available on check-out days, as these activities do not coincide with the briefing time.

Meal Inclusions:

Breakfast is not included on check-in days but is included on check-out days.

Transportation Services:

Guests who notify us in advance (the day before) that they will only be participating in one session (morning or afternoon) can benefit from LMBK’s assistance in organizing transport to/from the location. 

However, if such communication is not received in advance, transport services will not be included. 

While LMBK is available to facilitate the organization of transportation, it will not be provided as part of the package in the absence of prior notification.

HOLIDAYS

National Holidays (e.g., Independence Day, Labour Day, New Year’s Day, etc.): On national holidays, including Independence Day, Labour Day, and New Year’s Day, etc. there will be only one surfing session scheduled, and no additional activities will take place on these days.

Eid al Fitr (End of Ramadan): LMBK will be closed for three days during Eid al Fitr (April 9th, 10th, and 11th, 2024).

No surf briefing will be conducted on April 11th. Therefore, we strongly recommend that guests plan their travel accordingly, and if checking in on April 12th, guests can enjoy their surfing session on check out day instead of their check in day.

In cases where rescheduling is not possible, there will be one session available on April 12th as per our regular schedule, and guests can complete the surf briefing after this session on the evening of the 12th.

Each customer is responsible for the LMBK Surf House equipment during its use and accepts the responsibility to replace it in case of loss or serious damage by inappropriate use of it. The customer has to pay the lost or damaged equipment which automatically becomes the customer’s property.

Although we can assist in the rental of cars, motorbikes and scooters, please bear in mind that we are not the party that actually rents these vehicles. We cannot, therefore, be held responsible for any accidents, losses or injuries resulting from the state, quality or operability of any such vehicles.

Most vehicles are rented out by local people and insurance is not included, again, we recommend a robust travel insurance package which can cover any incidentals associated with vehicle rentals. Remember to check the conditions of the vehicles before agreeing to rent a vehicle, and make sure to always park in places where you will have to pay parking.

Poor Conditions

LMBK Surf House is not responsible for poor surfing conditions. We will always try our best to look for surf spots that are suited to conditions of the day and your level.

However, sometimes our plans may not work out as expected due to poor conditions, including low quality waves which makes it difficult or impossible to surf. Unfortunately, we are unable to control nor predict these factors.

Force Majeure LMBK Surf House is not responsible and cannot pay for compensation in situations that are beyond our control, where the performance of the contract is affected by circumstances which amount to “force majeure”.

Circumstances amounting to “force majeure” includes any event which we could not, even with all due care, foresee or avoid. These circumstances include, but not limited to, earthquake, volcano eruption, flights affected by volcano smoke, flood, landslide, tsunami, storm, civil strife, fire, war or threat of war, actual or threaten terrorist activity, epidemic, pandemic or similar situations beyond our control.

Directions & Instructions

In the line up, please stay close to our guides as they will take you to the right spots, especially if you are beginner or intermediate surfers.

Our surf guides and general manager reserve the right to decide which surf spot to go to, how you are designated into groups of beginner and intermediate, or advance based on your surf experience.

In special circumstances, for example due to extremely poor surf conditions, we may combine all guests to surf in the same spot despite the mixed levels, i.e. beginners, intermediates and advanced.
