*Exceptions: Items including cut line, custom rigging, numbered sails, open DVDs, and products worn or used out on the water are not eligible for return for refund. Our team will assess a return for store credit on a case by case basis. Clearance items included on our Deals page (or other product categories) are eligible for return for store credit only. A note about this policy is included on applicable product pages. Items noted as "special order" and all new kayaks and sailboats will incur restocking fees. These fees are assessed on an individual basis. Contact us for questions about special order items, kayaks, and sailboats.

  • We will process a refund for your order (less any expedited shipping charges) once the product is received.
  • If you do not have access to a printer, please include the information requested on the return form on a sheet of paper and include in the package. This may add to processing time but we will do our best to handle your return quickly.

You are welcome to wait until your return has been processed and credited before making the replacement purchase if that is more convenient.
