Acknowledgement of Risk

To be read by each group member.

Paddlesports may involve paddling Kayaks, Stand up Paddleboards, Jumbo Paddle Boards or Canoes. You will be playing games and going for a paddle journey. Sessions are likely to result in participants falling or jumping into the water. 

Land & Wave paddlesports are Swanage Bay and Poole harbour. 

The sea is a dynamic environment and conditions can change. Land & Wave Instructors continually monitor swell and tides before and during your sessions.

You will be required to move around in deep water while wearing a buoyancy aid. It is important that you are confident in the water and understand what you will be doing.

Your session may be cut short or cancelled at any point if the instructor deems it inappropriate based on environmental conditions or any dynamic risk beyond their control.

You will be involved throughout the activity in the decision making process. If you feel overwhelmed or unwell at any point you MUST tell your instructor who will be able to react accordingly. 

Accidents can happen; Land & Wave does not accept any responsibility for personal injury unless we have been negligent.

You must tell your instructor now about any health issues which may impact your participation such as;

  • Asthma
  • Severe Allergies
  • Mobility Issues 
  • Heart or respiratory issues
  • Mental Health Concerns
  • previous medical issues we should be aware of  (Surgeries) 
  • Or anything else that will impact the activity described above

Inhalers, epipens or any required medication must be carried on your activity.
