Keep the combination secret and don’t allow non members into the hut.
Handle the padlock carefully and never be too rough with it (We have spent over £80 on 3 padlocks since June due to misuse and sand in the workings). Always leave the padlock hanging on the handle and do not leave it on the ground/sand or grass as it gets ruined when sand gets inside the moveable parts.
Things are bit better lately so thank you for that but they are not perfect so please take any litter, all bits of clothing, towels, wet wet suits, broken old board bags,cycles etc home with you.
This might be a contentious issue but please remember this is not really a changing room or bike shed, it is a board store – there is just not sufficient space. Sadly, neither is it somewhere to ‘hang out’ as it is on private land so please collect your board, lock up the hut, and leave your clothes, bikes etc over the road (Against the wall on the tarmac area with railings overlooking T’Other side at the south side of the car park and maybe bring a bin sack to keep clothes dry.) In exceptional circumstances aspects of this rule may be temporarily waived.e.g if it is raining heavily then leave your clothes in a neat pile in the hut or similarly leave your bike if you have a puncture etc.
Label your equipment with a waterproof pen. Include your name and telephone number.
Never leave the door unlocked and open whilst surfing or at any time… last man locks up. Remember you can text/call me if there is a problem with locks etc.
Never borrow others equipment without permission ( including leashes , fins etc) and treat others equipment with care and respect
Wrap your leash around the tail of the board rather than leave it trailing on the floor or hanging down from a rack as this impedes everyone.
