Board Warranty Policy

We take great pride in the craftsmanship of our products and stand by every product we make.

Your SUP Sports® board should arrive in a con­di­tion ready for use. We spend lots of time and effort to design, develop, and build high qual­ity prod­ucts…and, we go to great lengths to guarantee that they get to you in the best shape possible…you will witness first hand the due diligence and time we spend preparing your board for shipment…our shipping department is second to none.

We offer the fol­low­ing lim­ited war­ranty against any defect in work­man­ship or mate­ri­als. Please con­tact our cus­tomer ser­vice department if you aren’t sure whether or not your item is cov­ered by our war­ranty.

All SUP Sports® branded SUP boards are cov­ered under an industry standard lim­ited 90-day war­ranty. In the case that a war­ranty is needed for any SUP Sports® prod­uct, it will be exe­cuted through your offi­cial SUP Sports® dealer where orig­i­nal pur­chase was made. This warranty applies only to the original purchaser and may not be transferred. If prod­uct is con­sid­ered under war­ranty, SUP Sports may also elect to cover the repair and ship­ping costs asso­ci­ated with the repair and/or replacement on a case by case basis. SUP boards by built by other manufacturers will be covered under that manufacturer’s specific warranty policy. All warranty claims should be submitted DIRECTLY to the manufacturer, however, in some cases we may be able to facilitate manufacturer warranty claims on behalf of our customers, this is solely at our discretion on a case by case basis.

This pol­icy cov­ers manufacturer’s defects ONLY. Small cosmetic issues do not affect the performance, function, or structural integrity of the board and are not applicable.

We are always striving to build our boards with the optimum strength/weight ratio to assure high performance, while still being affordable. Like with any high performance surfboard, signs of wear and tear are normal. Carbon is stronger for it’s weight compared to other materials…but, has less impact resistance and is more susceptible to UV and heat damage. Board bags are recommended. Board bags should never be zipped up tight with a wet board inside…always leave zipper partially open and keep out of direct sun. Paint damage, osmosis blistering, or other defects can be caused by storage of the board in closed, damp conditions. User inflicted dings are usually easy, and inexpensive, to repair.

EXCLUDED FROM COVERAGE
This lim­ited war­ranty excludes the following:
Boards that show impact or abuse in, or out of, waves…all surfboards are subject to breakage…especially, in larger than normal surf events…dam­age due to heat expo­sure includ­ing, but not lim­ited to, direct sun expo­sure…extended amount of time in a car, storage area, board bag, etc…rack damage…paddle strikes…knee paddling…heel dents…rock impact…damage or defects caused by transport, loading, unloading, dropping, or, off water handling…etc…
Wet boards zipped up tight in board bags…
Pre­vi­ous repairs…this warranty is void if any unauthorized repair, change or modification has been made to any part of the equipment.
Bro­ken boards…
Boards with signs of improper care or handling…
Inci­den­tal damage…fin impact…etc…
Unrea­son­able use…

FREIGHT INSPECTION
Nobody packs boards better than us. However, in the unlikely event that there is damage, we ask you to carefully follow this protocol. Please carefully inspect all freight upon delivery. Upon receiving the board please write on the Way Bill “Possible Concealed Damage Pending Full Inspection”. Note any holes and/or tears in box(s). Please inspect box and unwrap contents so that you don’t throw away fins and/or accessories. Have the carrier document in writing a detailed description of the damages on box or board before signing anything, return damaged board to driver, and then contact us immediately. If you sign, or the person receiving the product for you, signs for the board and takes the damaged freight from the terminal…or you let the driver leave after delivery to your residence or business, we are not liable to replace it…and, it could jeapordize the damage claim resulting in you having to pay return freight charges in order to get a replacement.
