What about import duties and taxes?
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.
In some cases, the tax rate will be calculated at the final stage of the checkout process.

How do I make a warranty claim?
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.
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.
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.
Our warranty policy does not apply to items that have been purchased for use in commercial, rental, teaching or instructional program or activities.
If you have purchased an inflatable SUP or kayak, please check the following common queries and/or contact us with details about the problem, before returning the product to us for a warranty claim.
SUP is leaking at valve
The valve might be slightly misaligned or need tightening. This is really common and is because the board has been rolled up in the storage box for a while. We recommend using the valve spanner in the repair kit to loosen off the valve a couple of turns, check the thread for any obstructions, then retighten.
Kayak is leaking
Leaks originate at the valve or bladder. We recommend switching the valves over. If the leak moves to the opposing bladder then there is an issue with the valve. If not, then there may be an issue with the bladder itself. Either issue can be easily fixed with a replacement part, which we can provide.
Kayak is warped or material is uneven
Sometimes the skin on brand new kayaks can stick to the bladder. We recommend removing the bladder completely and inflating it. This will iron out any creases for re-insertion and will usually fix the problem.
