Faulty Item Returns 
No one likes discovering that the product they bought is damaged, faulty, wrongly described, or different from a sample shown! In the unlikely event this happens, we want to resolve the matter as quickly as possible and with minimal inconvenience to you.

Please note your product/s may need to be sent to the manufacturer to be assessed before a decision can be made regarding an exchange or refund. In the event this happens, our team will stay in touch throughout the process. 

If you are unsure about whether a product has a manufacturing fault, please feel free to call us before sending it back to us or bringing into our store. We are also happy to assist with repairs. We will send non-warranty or out of warranty products purchased from East Coast Surf to the relevant supplier, at your expense, to be evaluated for a repair. One of our team members will contact you with a supplier repair quote and it's up to you if you would like to proceed with the repair, at your expense, or have the product returned to you. The repair and return timeframes are dictated by the supplier and are out of our control.

  1. Where it has been deemed that the fault is due to manufacturing, The Supplier will send out a replacement or if this is not possible, East Coast Surf will issue a Store Credit or Refund the purchase price of the faulty, damaged, or incorrect product once the supplier has deemed this as faulty.
