Answered by Nabil Butrous

Cover could depend on the kind of surfing you do

All the UK insurers have different appetites when it comes to certain sporting activities. Some insurers have larger risk tolerances for water sports than others. We have found in the past that many insurers are happy to cover occasional surfing, whilst on holiday for example.

If surfing is done on a competitive nature or on a professional level and more frequently; then most insurers are likely to exclude claims relating to surfing and some insurers have also increased the deferral period (waiting period) before a claim can be paid out.

Seek advice

The best way to approach this is by speaking to one of our independent advisers that have great knowledge about which insurers have a larger appetite to water sports and they can also give you a more accurate and specific answer that is tailored to your own specific circumstances.

Josh, Nick & Sam helped me set up PHI & Life insurance when I set up my own company. The application process wasn't straight forward due to my medical history, but the team made everything as simple as possible.
