Wetsuits

TSBW will exchange wetsuits for change of mind/size only if they are in perfect condition with proof of purchase. We will happily send you a replacement wetsuit once we have received the original item. Customers must pay for return postage and we will ship the replacement wetsuit for free on the first exchange only for full priced items. If the wetsuit was purchased on sale for a discount of 30% off or higher there will be a $10 fee to send out the replacement wetsuit.

See the below table for wetsuit warranty terms.

Disclaimers
Warranty claims cover fault, defect or failure occurring as a result of the manufacturing process. Damage or faults occurring as a result of misuse, accident, or wear & tear is not covered by our warranty policy. If the product is still under warranty then the repair will be at our expense including the freight to return the repaired or replacement product. If the product is out of warranty, then we can still have the product repaired, however, the cost of the repair will be charged to the customer. Skateboards and surfboards are prone to breaking in half or creasing when landing incorrectly, or simply due to the rough nature of the sport. Unfortunately, there is no warranty in this industry that covers such occurrences. Improper foot position, incorrect landing, or exceeding the limits are usually the culprits for snapped and creased boards, TSBW therefore, cannot take responsibility for it, and will not offer replacements for boards that have suffered a breakage or crease.
