Not until the Insurance companies get over themselves !

They require that someone be in the water with the equipment, so effectively that's a lesson, hence the only way to get equipment is to get a lesson.

Other places that rent are usually catering for a number of sports and get their insurance as an overall package.

The only place I know of that do board + suit hire is Jamie Knox in Castlegegory Co. Kerry.

RE: surf hire

I'm guessing it does, but does the same hold true for County Cork? I'm going there next month but won't have space to take a board so will need to hire out there. Any help much appreciated otherwise I'm going to be on a body board which isn't the same thing at all. I'm after a minimal/funboard 7.5'+

Surely there must be a workaround to the insurance requirements? For instance the shop "sells" you a 2nd hand board which they then refund you for (less their cut) upon return? Also because it's second hand there would be no VAT to pay. Would work for wetsuits as well I think.

What do you reckon?
