FAQ   [frequently asked questions]

WHO ARE WE?

A surf club run by members on a voluntary basis as we live and breathe wind and salty seawater.


HOW DO YOU JOIN?

It is mandatory to have said “Æloha” to us at one of our intro events. 

Once upon a time they used to be casually held each last Tuesday of the months from April to August, however...

...because of a great interest in the club during the last years, we were forced to introduce new procedures for these events.

  • Respect the club rules - It is also your club. Once you become a member, be sure to familiarise yourself with our "VEDTÆGTER". You will find the link in the Members' Area (General Information).
  • It’s a surfclub and we spend a lot of time on the water. You are expected to be able to swim at least 200m.
