Your guest must have previous watersports experience to hire equipment except for kayaks on the Lagoon. Board StorageWe have limited space to store members windsurf boards, SUP and wakeboards. Please ask us - there is often a waiting list. How membership fits into our centre Lagoon Watersports operates by offering tuition to the public, groups and hire (membership) in multiple activities. Not one activity or element is big enough to sustain the centre on its own. The success of the centre is based on multiple activities balancing the three elements of tuition, groups and hire. Our success is based on introducing new people to watersports and providing a route for them to practice and progress. In practice this means members do not have sole use of the equipment or cables. There are times that you may not be able to gain access to the equipment or cable time you want as it is being used for another part of the operation. We know you want to get out on the water as much as possible and we provide as much availability of equipment, staff and wakeboarding time as possible. Please understand the facilities are for the use of a wide range of customers and not just Club Members. Sometimes it may not be possible for you to get your preferred session times. If you have any difficulties please contact us. Cancelling membership Your membership will end after 12 months at which point you can decide if you wish to rejoin. All communication regarding membership administration must be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org If you are paying by monthly payments these should stop when your membership ends. BUT it is your job to ensure that your bank follows the instructions on the standing order mandate correctly. We strongly advise you to check that the payments have stopped. We will not be li- able for a mistake made by your bank and will not return over payments. By choosing to pay by Standing Order you are accepting that you are liable for the payment of the full annual membership fee. It is not a monthly membership fee, it is a way to enable you to spread the cost of your membership over 12 months. We will not refund a membership for any reason. eg job relocation. Illness or injury In the event of illness or injury making it impossible for the customerto use the facilities, Lagoon Watersports will consider a membership holiday period until the customer is able to use the facilities again. No refunds will be made and full payment for the membership period is still due. The maximum length of any holiday period is 12 months.
