I, for myself and on behalf of my heirs, assigns, personal representatives, next of kin and whomever else may have an interest either at common law or by operation of statute, hereby release, waive, relinquish, discharge and covenant not to sue LGSS, LB Entertainment, Carlos Zavala, Bolsa Chica State Beach and their officers, the city of Huntington Beach and their officers, instructors, advertisers, and if applicable, owners and lessors of premises used to conduct the LGSS activity (“Releasees”), from liability from any and all claims for any and all injury, disability, death, or loss or damage to person or property, whether arising from the negligence of the releasees or otherwise, sustained as a result of, arising out of or related to any LGSS activity, to the fullest extent permitted by law. In consideration of being allowed to participate in any way in one or more Let’s Go Surf School (LGSS) classes, surfing, and other water sport lessons, programs, related events and activities (referred to herein as a “LGSS Activity” or “LGSS Activities” as the context requires), I acknowledge, appreciate, and agree that:
LGSS Activities are inherently risky and potentially dangerous. The risk of injury from many of the LGSS activities is significant, including the potential for permanent paralysis and death, and while particular skills instruction, equipment, and personal discipline may reduce this risk, the risk of serious injury to the head, neck or spine; drowning; injury to muscles, bones, ligaments, tendons and other connective tissues; injury to internal and external organs, loss of or damage to sight, hearing, or teeth; long or short term disability; loss of income, career opportunities or the enjoyment of life; and pain, scarring and/or disfigurement. The causes of possible injury are many, including but not limited to: injury from contact with water, waves, sand, rocks, coral, equipment, other persons, submerged or partially submerged objects; water inhalation; injury from bodily contact, incidental to or inherent in the nature of the activity; slipping and falling or tripping on surfaces, regardless of physical or environmental conditions; entanglement with equipment; injury from warming up, practicing or training for participation; injury due to supervision or lack of supervision by LGSS employees or agents, including instructors, or to instructions ( or lack thereof) regarding the use of equipment or tools or to the nature of the activity itself; injury from contact or encounters with animals, stingrays, or plants; negligent or malicious acts of other participants, regardless of whether LGSS had or should have had knowledge of the likelihood of negligent or malicious acts by such participant and other causes that are incidental to or inherent in the nature of the activity.
I ACKNOWLEDGE THAT LGSS RESERVES THE UNRESTRICTED RIGHT TO DISMISS PARTICIPANTS WITH NO REFUND, including but not limited to anyone whose conduct or influence is deemed harmful or hostile, and anyone in violation of rules set forth by “Rules of the Beach.” I further acknowledge that any deposit and/or tuitions are NOT REFUNDABLE FOR ANY REASON, and that being late for a scheduled lesson, class, camp, or orientation may result in me or my child/ward waiting for the next scheduled lesson, class, camp, or orientation.
I GIVE PERMISSION FOR INSTRUCTORS, STAFF, AND EMPLOYEES TO START PRELIMINARY TREATMENT AND CARE, or to arrange transportation for me or my child/ward to a local Emergency Room, in the event that I or my child/ward become ill or injured. In instances when this Agreement is being executed by a parent or guardian, the signor acknowledges that he/ she has the right and legal authority to do so on the behalf of your child/ward.
I understand and acknowledge the contagious nature of COVID-19 and voluntarily assume all such risk that my child and I may be exposed to or infected with the COVID-19 through participation in the Let’s Go Surf School Activities and programs, and that such exposure or infection may result in personal injury, illness, permanent disability and/or death.
Assumption of Risk
