Surfing travel insurance

Mastering the art of surfing is on the bucket list of a great many people. It’s also a very tricky sport to tackle, but finding adequate travel insurance shouldn’t be the same.

Whether this is your first wave or the big kahuna you’ve been waiting for, you can rest assured knowing that your surfing travel insurance won’t be something to worry about.

While incredibly fun, surfing can also be a risky activity. Being caught up in a wave or rip tide could lead to some injuries and if you’re abroad you may need medical attention. It’s important to think about having a thorough travel insurance policy which will cover you in the event of an accident or injury. Rest assured, we’ll have you covered!

What is included with surfing insurance?

As surfing falls under all our policies as one of 50 amazing adventure sports and activities, you’ll be able to easily ride those waves knowing that you’re covered for: 

  • Medical expenses and hospital benefit
  • Personal accident and liability
  • Cancelling and cutting short your holiday
  • Abandoning your trip

  • Accommodation cover
  • Scheduled airline failure
  • Personal belongings and baggage
  • Personal money, passport and travel documents

 It’s important to note that our surfing travel insurance doesn’t include kite surfing over land, so if you’re planning on surfing away from the water, then you’ll need additional hazardous activities cover.

 

Surfing safety tips

Don’t let an accident on the first day ruin the whole week; remember a few simple tips and ensure a great time on the waves.

  1. Recognise, and be wary of rip currents
    Rip currents (or rips) are strong water currents that usually move out to sea. They look like a dark or murky line moving away from the beach. Try to avoid them so that you don’t get caught up in one.
  2. Always wear a leash
    A leash is like a lanyard which attaches both to you and your surfboard, so you are less likely to lose your board. Some beaches are very serious about having your surfboard leashed at all times in order to prevent any unnecessary injuries.
  3. Follow the surfing rules (and general rules) of the beach
    Each beach has its own unique set of rules designed to keep people as safe as possible during their visit. Make sure you read and respect these rules to help make your surfing experience safe and enjoyable.
