Hiring any equipment will require a form of photo ID. We will accept either: a driving licence or a passport. This will be kept during the hire period.

All equipment hired is at your own risk. We ask that if you hire our equipment you look after it like it’s your own.  We also ask that you return the equipment as you took it away, sand free and in one piece.

If you have never surfed before we highly recommend attending a surf lesson at Saltburn Surf School.  We can book this for you upon request.  This will cover all safety and basics that will help you stay safer in the sea.

Customers must ensure prior to hiring that they are not under the influence of alcohol or drugs or any medical condition that would make it dangerous to participate.

We reserve the right to refuse hire to any customer if we consider any of the above conditions are likely not to be met or we consider surf or weather conditions to be unsafe.
