Surfing and insurance
Surfing insurance is essential for any surfer, particularly if you’re going to be on the move a lot.
Surfing insurance could be included in your standard travel insurance policy, however restrictions may apply so you may need to upgrade your policy. It’s a good idea to read the policy information carefully before taking out the policy as a full list of sporting activities covered or excluded can be found in the policy wording. If necessary, talk to the insurance provider to make sure you get the cover that you really need for your trip. You’ll be able to find out if it is included at no extra cost or if you need to pay an additional premium.
For most surfers a trip brings exhilaration and thrills. It would be foolish though if we didn’t recognise that it can be dangerous and accidents and mishaps do unfortunately happen.
Put simply, travel insurance with surfing cover is a must because it may provide:
- Medical cover – just in case you hurt yourself!
- Liability cover – just in case you hurt someone else!
- Items lost, damaged or stolen – helpful if anything happens to your board or other essentials
- Useful cover – like covering you in case your flights get messed up or cancelled.
