Before sending your items to us we kindly request that you please contact us, drop us an e-mail:, or phone us on 01736 751066, so we may issue a Return Reference Authorisation Number, Monday to Friday, 9.30am-5pm. 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.

Please help us by showing your item(s) some love & care so we may receive it in the same condition as received by you - someone else may have the enjoyment of receiving your unwanted item in the future. 

Please do not write on, label or sellotape the original manufacturers product packaging, as this forms part of the product and we do not have spare/ replacement manufacturer's product packaging. 

Your return item(s) should be considerately re-packaged, with any/all manufacturers packaging, labels/tags attached, product/warranty information etc as supplied to you. 

If you are returning a wetsuit (of any type) please ensure the wetsuit is carefully and considerately re-packaged in appropriately sized packaging. Please do not fold the wetsuit shoulder to shoulder nor pack it too tightly as this will create excessive creasing.

Please take 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.  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 unsuitable for re-sale.
