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.

I was having trouble finding a suitable income protection policy online and was unclear about what I should be looking for, so I contacted Drewberry. The process was very quick and straightforward. They called me and explained how this type of insurance works, and then went through series of questions about my circumstances to try and find the right cover for me. They came back to me the next day with several suitable options and emailed all the relevant information clearly laid out. Michael Barrow, the advisor I spoke to, was happy to explain things in detail and answer any questions I had. I would definitely recommend Drewberry as they took all the hassle out of a confusing search.
