Common Injuries

Surfing does come with the inherent risk of injury, so it is important that you are fully protected with Travel Insurance before going on a Surfing holiday.

Some of the more common injuries that can be sustained as a result of Surfing include:

  • There is the risk of collision, potentially with other surfers, their boards, rocks or reef. This can cause anything from cuts and bruising, to serious wounds which then run the risk of being infected by any contaminated sea water.
  • As with most Water Sports, there is always the risk of drowning when Surfing. While being a stronger swimmer may help reduce the risk of drowning, if caught in the wrong conditions or trying to surf waves that are too big for your level of expertise, drowning can be a real threat.
  • Surfers can be carried away by rip currents, which are not always immediately tangible and can lurk even in calm waters.
  • Marine life, such as sharks and jelly fish, can also pose a serious threat to surfers.
  • There have also been cases of surfers being thrown towards the seabed, often after wiping out and being pushed under by their board, and being seriously injured or even killed as a result of the collision.

Surfing Equipment

If you are not an experienced Surfer and just want to try the sport out whilst on holiday, you will be able to rent a surfboard whilst away.

However, for all those who regularly surf, it is likely that they will own their own surf board. The right surfboard for you will depend on your height and level of experience.

Surfboards should be attached to the ankle with a surf lead.

Depending on the area and the time of year, Surfers can wear anything from board shorts / swimwear to full wet suits with boots, hoods and gloves to protect themselves from colder water.

Pre Existing Medical Conditions

If you have pre existing medical conditions and you plan to be Surfing whilst travelling abroad, we are able to provide you with a policy.

On the quote page you need to select Hazardous Activity Pack A.
