The tour may be canceled or postponed due to unforeseen circumstances. Please note that we will contact you in advance and consult with you as much as possible
Surfing is a sport in the sea, so there is always danger. We strongly recommend that you purchase overseas travel insurance before leaving Japan. Medical costs in America are very high.
Please do not bring your passport, large amounts of cash, or valuables with you when participating in the tour. While surfing, there are also dangers such as car break-ins. We pay close attention to car security and accidents, but we cannot be held responsible in the unlikely event of theft, accident, or injury. Please apply after agreeing to the above.


A 50% cancellation fee will be charged within 48 hours of the tour date, and a 100% cancellation fee will be charged within 24 hours.
