Sale of Products
When you place an order to purchase a product from watersportsoutlet.com we will send you an e-mail confirming receipt of your order. The email confirmation will be produced automatically so that you have confirmation of your order details.
Product Descriptions & Availability
Every care has been taken to ensure that all descriptions, specifications, colours and prices are correct. However, colour representations may vary depending on your own monitor and we endeavor to be as accurate as possible. All sizes are approximate as sizing varies across the large number of manufacturers supplying our products.
All photographs are indicative of the product. In rare cases, minor or subtle differences between the product and the photo supplied by the manufacturer can occur. These differences will be made clear in the product description. Please read this carefully before purchasing a product to avoid dissatisfaction.
All items are offered subject to availability at the time of ordering. If a product ordered is found to be out of stock, we will notify you as soon as possible. Orders are only accepted once the goods have been dispatched.
Pricing & Payments
All prices and offers are subject to availability. We do our best to ensure all product descriptions, images and prices are displayed correctly across our website, errors and omissions excepted. Your payment method will be charged at the point you confirm the order.
Customers outside of the E.U. and United States are responsible for local import duties/taxes that may be applied. We have no control over these charges and cannot predict what they may be. If unsure, please contact your local customs office for information. International customers should be aware that cross-border deliveries are subject to opening and inspection by customs authorities.
Refusal to pay local import and custom charges could result in your order being returned to Watersports Outlet or destroyed. If your order is destroyed or not returned to us for a similar reason, we may not be able to provide a refund. Under these circumstances, original postage costs may not be refundable. We can only refund the value of products returned in accordance with our returns policy, minus any costs incurred by Watersports Outlet in order to reobtain them.
VAT Refunds on Exports from the EU (Retail Export Scheme)
As a purely internet-based mail-order company, watersportsoutlet.com is legally ineligible to participate in the VAT Retail Export Scheme, which reimburses VAT to customers when they purchase goods for personal export outside of the EU.
Only goods collected directly from our warehouse are eligible for VAT refunds on receipt of completed 407 form stamped at customs at point of exit and returned to us.
You have the right to cancel your order and receive a full refund before dispatch. If you are not totally satisfied with your purchase, you have the right to cancel your order within 60 days of receipt. You must return the goods to us at your cost in an unused and re-saleable condition in accordance with our returns policy, with a copy of your invoice and a note explaining the reason for return. Please ensure you obtain proof of postage as we cannot be held responsible for the non-receipt of returns.
Any credit accrued from a Watersports Outlet promotion must be used within two years of the date the amount was credited to the account unless otherwise stated. If you return an order where you have benefited from a promotion and spent that credit (e.g. new customer credit) we will deduct the amount from the refund.
The "New Customer 10% Welcome Offer" ended on 30th July 2020.
Watersports Outlet reserves the right to end any promotion at any time without notice and omit a customer or order from a promotion for reasons including, but not limited to, suspected fraudulent activity and issues processing payment.
Promotional codes will not be valid in conjunction with WSO+Rewards Vouchers.
If you return an order where you have benefited from a gift with purchase promotion, you must also return the free gift. If not returned, we will deduct the retail value from your refund.

Watersports Outlet offer a 12-month warranty against manufacturing defects. If you have experienced a problem due to a manufacturing fault within this period, we are happy to act on your behalf and contact the brand to initiate a claim. To do this, please send an email to [email protected] explaining the fault in detail and include photographs clearly showing the fault. Photographs are essential when making a warranty claim.
If you have purchased a product with an extended warranty, the extension is offered by the brand and not Watersports Outlet. If you experience a problem with a product outside of the 12-month warranty offered by Watersports Outlet, you will need to contact the brand to initiate a claim.
Please do not return any incorrect/faulty items without having contacted us first. We know dealing with a faulty item can be inconvenient for you, so please be assured that we always aim to resolve issues as quickly and easily as possible.
Often the outcome of the claim is entirely down to the discretion of the manufacturer, so time must be allowed for their assessment and report so we can then move forward and resolve the issue. They may decide to repair, replace or credit the item or they may deem the issue not suitable for warranty cover. In the event your item isn't covered under the manufacturer's warranty, then we will be happy to investigate alternative solutions for you.
All warranty claims must be handled in the country the item was originally shipped to. In the event an item needs to be returned to the original country to process a warranty claim, the customer will be responsible for any extra shipping charges incurred.
Events Beyond our Control
We cannot be held responsible for any delay or failure to comply with our obligations under these conditions if the delay or failure arises from any cause which is beyond our reasonable control. Examples include but are not limited to delays due to weather, etc. This does not affect your statutory rights.
