Article 3. Offers and quotations
3.1. All offers are without obligation, unless a term for acceptance is stated in the offer. The offers made by the Organizer are without obligation and are valid for 20 days, unless indicated otherwise. The User is only bound by the offers if the acceptance thereof is confirmed in writing by the Client within 20 days or if it can be deduced from the actions of the Organizer that there is an agreement.
3.2. The prices in the aforementioned offers and quotations include turnover tax and other government levies, as well as any costs to be incurred in the context of the agreement, including mileage and transport costs, unless indicated otherwise;
3.3. A composite quotation does not oblige the Organizer to perform part of the assignment for a corresponding part of the stated price. Offers or quotations do not automatically apply to future assignments.


Article 4. Agreement


4.1. The Organizer will execute the agreement to the best of its knowledge and ability and in accordance with the requirements of good workmanship.


4.2. Organizer has the right to have certain (partial) activities performed by third parties.


4.3. The Client shall ensure that all information, which the Organizer indicates is necessary or which the Client should reasonably understand to be necessary for the execution of the agreement, is provided to the Organizer in a timely manner. This also includes the personal circumstances of the person who participates in the activity (in particular relevant medical and conditional details, alcohol and/or drug use, etc.). All course participants must be in good health. Any physical complaints that are important when practicing a sport must therefore be reported immediately to Kitesurfspot. Kitesurfspot is not liable for aggravating any injury that has already been caused before the course. On the basis of the information provided by the Client to the Organizer, the Organizer is at all times entitled to exclude participation by the Client or persons forming part of it. Insofar as necessary, the agreement for that part will then be dissolved, without any right of the Client to compensation arising.


Article 5. Amendment/cancellation of the agreement


5.1. If during the execution of the agreement it appears that an intended activity cannot take place due to weather or other circumstances in the opinion of the Organizer, the Organizer is entitled to substitute another activity without this being a reason for the Client to (partially ) cancellation of the agreement and (partial) refund of amounts paid or compensation for damage.


5.2. If the parties agree that the agreement will be amended or supplemented, the time and duration of the Activity/Arrangement may be affected as a result. The Organizer will inform the Client of this as soon as possible. If the amendment or addition to the agreement has financial consequences, the Organizer will inform the Client about this in advance. If a fixed fee has been agreed, the Organizer will indicate to what extent the amendment or supplement to the agreement will result in this fee being exceeded.


5.3. Contrary to the previous paragraph, the Organizer will not be able to charge additional costs if the change or addition is the result of circumstances that can be attributed to the Organiser.

5.4. CANCELLATION OF ACTIVITY If an agreement / a booked kitesurfing lesson is canceled by the participant, costs will be charged. Firstly, the administration costs of €25 for processing the booking (google, website, telephone, e-mail, booking system). In some cases there are additional cancellation costs on top of this, if they are: a. from 8 to 14 days before the start: 25% of the package price b. within 7 days (inclusive) before the start: 50% of the package price c. within 48 hours before the start or later: 100% of the package price. This also applies if a participant is not present without cancellation.


5.5.a. CHANGE TO ACTIVITY In the event that the Client changes (i.e. does not cancel) an agreed Activity/Arrangement more than 48 hours prior to the Activity/Arrangement, the amount can be used in its entirety (100 %) by the Client for a new Activity/Arrangement during the validity of the booking, or transferred to friends/family of the Client. b. Unless otherwise agreed, cancellation or amendment by the Client less than 48 hours prior to the planned Activity/Arrangement is not possible, so that the Client is then obliged to pay the Organizer the fully agreed amount at the first request of the Organizer.

5.6. Cancellation by the Organizer does not make the Organizer liable for compensation in any way towards the Client. As soon as the Organizer becomes aware that the planned and agreed Activity/Arrangement cannot or partly cannot take place, the Organizer is obliged to inform the Client immediately (whether or not accompanied by an alternative offer).

5.7 Examples from practice Kitesurfspot and its representatives are at all times authorized to cancel the activity (kitesurfing lesson) due to safety and quality. After canceling the activity, a new date will be found for a complete part of the Activity in consultation with the Client and Organizer + Representative.


Example 1: Kitesurfspot has a standard decision point every day whether the kitesurfing lessons of the next day will take place or not based on weather forecasts, temperatures, wind maps, etc. As a rule, for quality and safety, we use kitesurfing lessons between 10 – 30 knots depending on the student’s individual lesson goal and weight. If the lessons are cancelled, Kitesurfspot will let you know by e-mail, text or telephone prior to the activity.


Conclusion: a full lesson can then be rescheduled by the student at no extra cost


Example 2: During a kitesurfing lesson, the wind and weather forecasts may differ from reality. Kitesurfspot always strives to divide the entire time period for a kitesurfing lesson as qualitatively as possible. Kitesurfspot and its representatives (instructors) are at all times authorized to cancel the activities for reasons of safety and quality. Due to the great dependence on natural elements, it sometimes happens that half a lesson is completed instead of a whole. As a solution Kitesurfspot.nl Kitesurfschool offers the remaining lesson time, so in the above case, half of the value of the purchased kitesurf lesson is returned as “credits” in the profile of the student. Conclusion: As a result, a financial compensation for the unfilled time period “half the lesson” has been returned. Depending on the amount of this compensation, the student can “upgrade” another lesson (from group lesson -> duo lesson) or schedule a completely new lesson at no extra cost. Kitesurfspot does not facilitate half lessons, it is therefore only possible to schedule a full lesson. See a calculation example below: Jaap books a 3-day duo kitesurf course for €360 and pays directly online. The first kitesurfing lesson goes smoothly, Jaap is looking forward to it and has a taste for it. Unfortunately, on the evening before his 2nd kitesurfing lesson, Jaap receives an e-mail from Kitesurfspot.nl that there is no wind the next day -> Jaap grabs his mobile and logs in to his individual profile and can immediately cancel the lesson schedule it on another date and continue the lesson at another time. Jaap is having the time of his life in his 2nd lesson and has just made his first meters on the board! During the third kitesurfing lesson, Jaap is sailing back and forth until his instructor takes the kite over, lowers it and cancels the lesson. A sudden thunderstorm comes over that lasts 1.5 hours – it’s a pity just half of Jaap’s lesson. Jaap is sitting with one of the instructor 

and he gets half of his last lesson (€360/3lessons = €120 per lesson) so €60 is refunded in the form of credits to his account. Jaap actually wanted to buy a private lesson worth €180 after his 3rd lesson as a conclusion of the course. Instead of €180, Jaap now pays (180-60 credit) €120 for his last private lesson.
