availability, policies &   rescheduling your wedding: 

current wedding couples:

I want you to be aware of my availability before starting the process of rescheduling your wedding date. To make things easy I have created this guide including steps to rescheduling, my availability calendar for 2021, my rescheduling policy, new studio policies and links to wedding blogs providing advice to couples during this time. 

contact your venue

You deserve to have your wedding day! Postpone your wedding date, do not cancel it.  Contact your venue first and ask for dates they have available. Venues typically only book 1 wedding a day so it is important that they are consulted with first about a date change. Some will allow soft holds.

contact your vendors

Reach out to all your vendors and let them know the date options your venue provided. Ideally everyone should be available for at least one of those dates. Don't contract a new date until you talk to all your vendors. Remember each vendor is a small business so each will have their own rescheduling policies. 

date change

  • Send an "unsave the date" to your guests.

  • Follow-up with a new save the date at least 12 weeks before your new date.

  • Send out the official invitation 8 weeks before your date. Yay!

  • Send these digitally (free and eco-friendly) or via mail.

rescheduling policies
  • Please choose a date I have available.

  • There's no rescheduling fee. You will need to sign a rescheduling addendum.

  • Your retainer payment and any payments made are applied to your new wedding date.

  • Your payment due dates will adjust to your rescheduled wedding date.

  • You have two options for your payment plan. Keep your current payment plan or switch to the new payment plan with payments being split equally and due 90 days, 60 days, 30 days and 7 days before your wedding date. For reference, the current payment plans due dates are 30 days and 7 days before your wedding date.

  • You can put a soft hold on a 2021 or 2022 date if you are unsure about rescheduling at this time. If someone else chooses that soft hold date you will be notified and will then have 72 hours to decide if you want to move forward with officially rescheduling or the date will be released to the other couple.

You will need to read a waiver prior to entering the studio. The waiver outlines the sick policy, cleaning policy, rescheduling policy and what I am doing to keep you safe!

To keep fresh air circulating I will have a window open and an air purifier running 24/7.


You are not required to wear a mask during your session but I will be wearing a mask at all times..

social distance

I kindly ask that you keep your distance from me. In different circumstances hugs and handshakes would be welcomed but right now the rule is 6ft.


When leaving the studio you will need to wash your hands again or use the hand sanitizer station.


All surfaces in the studio and will be wiped down and disinfected between each session/meeting.. This includes any sets or props used or album samples touched.

What should I bring to my lesson?

We recomend for your lesson you bring sunscreen, a towel, and drinking water.

Will there be time for Photos?

Absolutly, we include photo opportunities at the beginning and end of ever lesson.

Can I lock up my things when i'm in the water.

You will be able to lock all of your personal belongings inside your instructors vehicle while you are in the water.

What is the best beach for first time surfers?

For your first lesson we reccomend Zuma Beach located in North Malibu. The waves tend to be a little smaller and smoother than most LA county beaches.

How long are surf lessons?

Each lesson is 2 hours in length. Longer lesson times are available upon request.

What is your cancelation policy?

Our cancellation and resceduling policy is 48 hours prior to your start time. We understand that when traveling scedules can change and we do our best to accomodate everyone based upon availability.

What about gratuity?

If you enjoy your lesson gratuity is appriciated and can be given to the instructor directly.

What if I can't swim?

Not being able to swim is actually not a problem. We teach on beaches with smooth waves and rarely take clients out past where they can touch. In addition to that the instructor will stay by your side the entire lesson giving you hands on assistance.

 what's next? 

If you have decided you want to officially move forward with rescheduling your wedding date please email me and I will send you a rescheduling addendum to sign
