Welcome to the Independent Surfer! 

Throughout these Terms of Service (the “Terms”), “we,” “us” and “our” refer to the Independent Surfer.  Your use of our website, products and services, is subject to these Terms.  By using this website, or the products and services contained therein, you agree to be bound by these Terms.


Surfing is an extreme sport and involves risk.  We may also discuss other extreme sports, including without limitation, skateboarding, snowboarding, and freediving, which also involve risk.  Serious risks include, without limitation, the potential for serious bodily injury, sickness and disease, permanent disability, paralysis and loss of life. 

When engaging in any sport activities, it is your sole reasonability to assess your ability levels and the safety of conditions, including, without limitation, weather conditions, equipment conditions, security, and local laws, rules, and customs.  Additionally, it is your sole responsibility to determine whether you are sufficiently fit and healthy enough to engage in any sport activities. 

While our goal is to provide the knowledge you need to safely enjoy your time surfing, we cannot guarantee your safety.  In accordance with these Terms, we will not be liable for any damages that may occur to yourself or others.


We will not be liable to you, or any third party, for any consequential, incidental, special, or indirect damages (including, but not limited to injury or death, or damage or loss of property) that result from your use of this website or the products or services offered herein. 

Please be aware that if you live in a jurisdiction that does not allow the limitations of exclusion of liability or incidental or consequential damages, some or all of these limitations and exclusions may not apply to you.
