We pride ourselves in only stocking the best wetsuits from the top watersports brands, but no matter how high quality a wetsuit is, accidents can still happen. Jewellery, like rings or watches, sharp undergrounds like rocks, or not taking proper care and storage can easily cause issues for your wetsuit.
It’s pretty heart-breaking when you spot a rip or an unravelling seam on your wetsuit, and with accidental damage not being covered by warranty, this is something you'll need to sort out yourself, or pay someone else to. Small areas of damage are often easily fixable at home, but be aware that unauthorised repairs (especially on seams) will void most warranties.
If you think this may be a valid warranty claim, contact our friendly warranty team. To do this, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org explaining the fault in detail and include photographs clearly showing the fault. Photographs are essential when making a warranty claim.
If the damage does not fall under warranty, or your wetsuit has lived beyond its warranty period, you can address small fixes yourself. Read on for our step-by-step guide to repairing your wetsuit.
