To help us help you, where possible, do please contact us either by e-mail to: firstname.lastname@example.org, or phone us on 01736 751066 so we may issue a Return Reference Number, before sending the goods, Monday to Friday, 9.30am-5.30pm. Please advise which item(s) is/are to be returned. Please write your Returns Reference Number clearly on the outside of your parcel and on any correspondence.
Your return item(s) should be suitably and considerately re-packaged and include any/all manufacturers labels/tags, information, instructions, warranty information, bags etc as supplied to you. We do hope you will take reasonable care of the item(s) you wish to return as we reserve the right to refuse an exchange/refund and return the goods to you if they are not fit for re-sale.
Please help us and show your returned item(s) some love & care so we may receive it in the same condition as received by you. If you are returning a wetsuit (of any type) please ensure the wetsuit is considerately re-packaged and not folded shoulder to shoulder nor packed too tightly as this will create excessive creasing. We reserve the right to refuse to exchange/refund and return your goods to you if the goods are not fit for re-sale.
Unfortunately, due to current circumstances we continue to operate with reduced staffing levels, inevitably this may result in a delay in processing exchanges/ refunds. Parcels are initially quarantined on receipt. Please do not hesitate to re-order online if you wish to speed up the exchange process.
Please ENCLOSE A NOTE TO CONFIRM so we know what you wish us to do; the exchange/refund details; confirm the exchange product details and your re-delivery address, bear in mind a signature is usually required for items over £100.
Please take reasonable care of the item(s) you wish to return and send it to us by a suitable method and at your expense (apologies but we are unable to offer a free return service).
Royal Mail offer a Certificate of Posting for low cost/lightweight items, and trackable services, eg: Recorded or Special Delivery, for higher value items. There is also the Collect+ service which for many can provide a more convenient and possibly low cost alternative to some Royal Mail postal services, particuarly for bulkier/heavier items.
There are over 7,000 Collect+ points, open from early morning until late evening, 7 days a week and include many local convenience stores, petrol stations, universities and shopping centres.
If you wish to send an item to us using CollectPlus the link below will take you to their site where you can select and pay for the service you wish to use to send your parcel to us. To find your local Collect+ stores go to 'Find a Store' and enter your post code.

Please also note any discount/promotional offer applied to your order which then reduces the total goods order value below any threshold amount will be deducted from the refund value of the goods returned.
