In order to maintain a pleasant forum atmosphere where everyone enjoys their freedom of speech, the following rules must apply.

To participate in the forum i.e. to be able to write a message, you have to be a registered member with SurfAdviser - membership is free.

It is strictly forbidden to personally attack other users. You have the right to express your opinion, but do not offend other users in the process. Tolerance, understanding and kindness should be used in all discussions. Even though this is an international forum, please make sure that your posts and signature links are written in English.

Politics and religion etc.

Personal discussions belong outside the forum. Remember that this is not a chat server. Political discussion not directly related to windsurfing is prohibited, as is any discussion on religion and religious matters.

No copyright or trademarked material
You can not post copy written material or a reproduction of registered trade/service marks without permission from the author or owner. This means that, without prior permission, you may not post protected material such as films, music and computer software etc, or an image of a manufacturer's trademarked logo.

No illegal activity

All information which could be used for an illegal purpose is not allowed in the forum and this also includes links to sites with similar information.

Keep all commentary civil, and be courteous at all times. Constructive criticism is welcome, but insults directed towards other users will not be tolerated. Coarse/insulting language will not be tolerated. Views and opinions that are considered inflammatory, racist, sexist or hateful will be moderated or deleted. The SurfAdviser team are trying to provide an open environment where posters can share their views, but if their views, or the way they are expressed are inflammatory or offensive to other posters or groups of people in general, then action may be taken against the offender.

It is forbidden to post private advertising in the forum. Instead, please contact SurfAdviser to purchase advertising space on our regular website.
