On the Monday of your Academy week you can rent the wetsuit for the week if needed. Wetsuits price: One Day $20.00. One Week (5 days) $20.00. Once a wetsuit is rented it is your child's rental for the week whether they use it or not. Meaning we CANNOT rent that wetsuit to anyone else during that time frame. So there are NO refunds. The rental will be on the beach daily when needed.
