Receiving your order

When will my order be dispatched?

We aim to dispatch all orders on the same day if the order is received before 16:00 on a normal business day. If the order is received after 16:00 it will be dispatched on the next business day. Orders received on a Saturday, Sunday or Bank Holiday will be dispatched on the next business day.

When will I receive my order?

If your UK order is over £99 and is placed before 16:00 on a normal business day then it will be delivered free on the next business day.

If your UK order is under £99 you can still receive your products on the next business day (if ordered before 16:00 on a normal business day) for a small charge.

Free delivery for UK orders takes between 3-5 business days to arrive, although in general the majority of our customers are pleasantly surprised to receive their orders very quickly (within 2 to 3 days).

If you experience any issues with your delivery, please contact us within 2 weeks of your order dispatch date.

Do you offer next day delivery?


A next day delivery option is available for orders placed before 16:00 and is free of charge for UK orders over £99. If your order is less than that, you can view full details of our delivery options and costs.

Alternatively, you can place your order for collection and pick it up for free from our showroom in Shoeburyness Monday - Friday between 11am and 5pm or on Saturday between 9am - 4pm. Your order is ready for collection only when you have received an email to say it has been packed and is ready for collection.

Warranty Claims

How do I make a warranty claim?

Wetsuit Outlet offer a 12-month warranty against manufacturing defects. If you have experienced a problem due to a manufacturing fault within this period, we are happy to act on your behalf and contact the brand to initiate a claim. To do this, please send an email to explaining the fault in detail and include photographs clearly showing the fault. Photographs are essential when making a warranty claim.

All warranty claims must be handled in the country the item was originally shipped to. In the event an item needs to be returned to the original country to process a warranty claim, the customer will be responsible for any extra shipping charges incurred.

If you have purchased a product with an extended warranty, the extension is offered by the brand and not Wetsuit Outlet. If you experience a problem with a product outside of the 12-month warranty offered by Wetsuit Outlet, you will need to contact the brand to initiate a claim.

Our warranty policy does not apply to items that have been purchased for use in commercial, rental, teaching or instructional program or activities.

Common issues

If you have purchased an inflatable SUP or kayak, please check the following common queries and/or contact us with details about the problem, before returning the product to us for a warranty claim.

SUP is leaking at valve
The valve might be slightly misaligned or need tightening. This is really common and is because the board has been rolled up in the storage box for a while. We recommend using the valve spanner in the repair kit to loosen off the valve a couple of turns, check the thread for any obstructions, then retighten.

Kayak is leaking
Leaks originate at the valve or bladder. We recommend switching the valves over. If the leak moves to the opposing bladder then there is an issue with the valve. If not, then there may be an issue with the bladder itself. Either issue can be easily fixed with a replacement part, which we can provide.

Kayak is warped or material is uneven
Sometimes the skin on brand new kayaks can stick to the bladder. We recommend removing the bladder completely and inflating it. This will iron out any creases for re-insertion and will usually fix the problem.

Discounts & Promotions

Do you price match?

Yes. We check our prices every day to ensure they're the most competitive in the market. However, if you find another online UK retailer offering the same product at a cheaper price, contact us before placing your order and we will match the price providing the following terms and conditions are met.

Price match terms and conditions
  • We will match online UK retailers only.
  • We will not match marketplaces such as Amazon or eBay.
  • The competitor product must be identical (brand, model, size and colour) to ours and unused.
  • The competitor product must be in stock and available for immediate delivery.
  • We must be able to verify the competitor price and stock availability.
  • We will not match delivery or return charges.
  • We cannot match a price once your order has been placed.

We reserve the right to decline a price match for any reason.

Do I need to return free gifts?

"Gift with purchase" promotions are available only while stocks last. If you return an order where you have benefited from a gift with purchase promotion, you must also return the free gift. If not returned, we will deduct the retail value from your refund.
