Each renter applies its own rate.
These rates are inclusive of all taxes.
Before the start of each rental, a schedule of condition is established between the customer and the renter. The signing of the lease constitutes acceptance of the condition of the Stand Up Paddle/Kayak or Bike and accessories.
Exceeding the rental time will be charged initially by the ¼ hour based on the rental price of one hour.
When you book with a Free OceanRide spot, the payment of the rental fee and all-inclusive taxes is made to the spot on site according to their terms.
As part of Club OceanRide, the payment of the rental fee and delivery of services, inclusive of all taxes, is made online on the OceanRide.org platform by the customer in e-money via Leetchi’s MangoPay Wallet collaborative payment platform.
Upon validation of the booking, a request for pre-authorisation is made and maintained until the day of the session. The collection of the total amount due will be taken, at the latest, on the night after the completion of the service.
This payment constitutes a "Payment transaction” under the MangoPay Terms and Conditions.
Throughout the whole process, the credit card number is not stored on the OceanRide.org platform, but only on the server of the banking service.
On the signing of the rental contract, at the time it starts, a second request for pre-authorisation for the deposit is made in parallel on the payment card used for the booking. This request for pre-authorisation is made at the beginning of the rental session. In cases where no incidents are reported, the pre-authorisation is withdrawn. In the case of the non-return of rented equipment, of loss, theft or damage to the rented equipment, the amount corresponding to the damage will be charged to the card used for the booking.
This deposit amounts to 200 euros per board booked. With bookings of more than three boards, this deposit is capped at 600 Euros for the entire booking.
4-D-i By the User
The customer has the option of cancelling their booking without charge up until 72 hours before the delivery of service.
After this period of 72 hours, the customer may cancel the session up until the last minute. The cost of the service will be charged at the time of cancellation. The customer can then defer their order for one month from the initial booking, but only at the renter where the original booking was made and using a Credit Note code. Beyond this one-month period, the booking will be lost.
4-D-ii By the spot
In the case of the renter being obliged to cancel a booking, the official means of cancellation is via an email through the oceanride.org platform prepared and sent via the back office of the renter.

A promotional code (Credit Note or Beach Clean-Up) can be used once.
In the case of a Beach Clean-Up code, it can only be used at the renter where the Beach Clean-up took place.
In the case of a Credit Note code, it can only be used at the renter where the original booking was made.
Our service is free of charge. We will not charge you for our service or add any additional (booking) fees to the rental rate.

OceanRide and members of the network of renters undertake:
- To provide the service according to the Terms & Conditions (T&Cs) described herein
- To make their best efforts to ensure the continuity and quality of service provided with all the means at their disposal.
Members of the network of srenters are exclusively responsible for the conditions in which the SUP/Kayak or Bike are rented to customers and particularly regarding safety.
Furthermore, they acknowledge that they have the skills necessary to objectively judge if weather conditions are satisfactory for the level of users who are renting the SUP/Kayak or Bike and of the renter.
OceanRide cannot be held responsible:
- In the event of a proven breach from the renter about the services provided
- In the event of improper use by the customer of the services provided, especially for damage or injury resulting from the use or misuse of a Stand Up Paddle/Kayak or Bike , or a lack of good sense or inability to use theStand Up Paddle/Kayak or Bike.
- In case of a failure by the customer in their obligations under the terms and conditions of the service
- In case of use of the service by an unauthorised person

The client agrees to:
- Use the Stand Up Paddle/Kayak or Bike and accessories in accordance with the instructions provided by the renter, specifically with regard to navigation, and in accordance with the terms and conditions of the “OceanRide” service:
- Understand and not exceed their limits
- Not use alcohol or mind-altering drugs prior to or while using the equipment
For Stand UP Paddle and Kayak
- Always wear an approved personal flotation device, unless you are using the boards in the waves. In waves, where the use of a personal flotation device can be dangerous, you should have the appropriate swimming and paddling ability not to need one.
- Dress appropriately for the weather conditions and the spot: cold water and/or weather can result in hypothermia
- Always use a surf leash to attach your leg to the board. However, a leash is not a life-saving device and is intended for convenience only. It is not intended to compensate for deficient paddling and swimming ability, ocean knowledge, safety precautions, or general common sense.
*Never grab or wrap the leash around your hand to recover the board: the force of a wave may cause serious damage to your hand or fingers and even amputation in the worst cases.
*A SUP leash can become stuck on objects under the water, particularly when surfing on reef or rock breaks. To reduce the risk of drowning, before going surfing with this leash you must train regularly to use the quick release pull-tab on the velcro ankle or knee bracelet.
*SUP leashes are not intended for use in rivers with current or whitewater rapids. They should not be used in these conditions unless used in conjunction with a flotation vest and having followed the specific training for this type of activity.
*You should not drag the board using the leash. Leashes have not been designed to tow, carry or tighten things.
*Always hold unto your SUP paddle. The SUP paddle is a vital part of your propulsion, manoeuvrability and above all safety. If dropped in the water it should be recovered as quickly as possible. Never paddle in surf conditions if you cannot control your SUP paddle at all times. A floating paddle may be dangerous for other water users.
*Always check the state of your fin, to ensure that it is smooth and free of cutting edges, which can cause serious injury to either you or somebody else.
*Never paddle alone.
*Be aware of changes in wave conditions, tidal changes, dangerous currents, and river water levels. Never paddle in floods conditions.
