NOW THAT OMICRON HAS SPREAD THROUGHOUT, THERE IS NO REASON TO HAVE ANY RESTRICTIONS.
But, unbelievably, our health overlords have not yet, or just don't want to figure this out. So below is some blah blah blah.. It's revised from last year but still has some yadda yadda.
In order to insure the health and safety of our staff and clients, we have had to adapt some new protocols into the regular process of how we operate the surf camps and lessons.
The first change to policies in place is that anyone feeling ill or showing any symptoms of COVID-19 are asked to refrain from booking/showing up for their lesson. If anyone does arrive and are visibly ill or showing symptoms, for the safety of everyone, they will be asked to not participate or enter the building.
Other than that, the steps to conducting our lesson routine are still the same;
1 - Meet at the shop (payment, fitting and paperwork).
2 - Conduct a thorough land lesson.
3- Have fun and learn to surf in the ocean.
4 - Call it a good session, de-suite and collect gear, or, part ways till the next session.
Here are the details of each step. Highlighted is where the new changes are now implemented.
1 - MEET AT THE SHOP.
We will meet at the shop to fit suits as usuaL, but we can only allow a certain number of people in the shop at once as its a small space. This number will vary as each group showing up together will obviously be allowed in at the same time, but I have a shared space with Ukee Bikes and there might be other customers already in the shop for their services. No stress, you just might have to wait a hot second or two outside till we are all clear.
The garage door will be open as much as possible throughout the summer to ensure good ventilation in the shop.
Once in the shop, we will fit you in the suits as usual.
The waiver forms that are usually filled out in person will now be sent with the final details email during the booking process. They can be filled out prior to arriving at the shop but if it is not possible to do so, I will have paper copies to do in person.
Heading out to the beach is nothing new, but I will now not be able to provide transportation to clients. I hope this will change soon, but for now it is considered too risky to have people in close quarters like a vehicle.
2 - THE LAND LESSON.
We are outside. No issues.
3 - IN WATER INSTRUCTION.
4 - HIGH FIVE, DE-SUIT, PACK UP, CALL IT A GOOD SESSION.
