*At the Surfer’s Academy on the 13th of September all medical conference attendees are welcome to join, but as our aim this day is to inform the surfer to keep the “surfer healthy and safe”, surfers that register have priority in seating themselves in the conference room. We will arrange TV screens with live broadcast from the conference room(same building) and seating outside of the conference room if needed if the capacity of the conference room is met.
