RETURNS

If for some reason you are not happy with your product you can return it to us for a refund or exchange within 30 days from date of delivery. In order to qualify for a refund or exchange, you must request your RAN within 30 days of receiving your item, having taken good care of it and kept it in an unused state, complete with packaging and all it’s components. See the Returns Page for details on how to get your RAN and returning your item.

The refund will be made to the payment method used to place the order unless requested otherwise. The refund will be made as soon as the item has been returned. You will not be refunded for the P&P of your item, but please be aware that you are responsible for the returned item until it has reached us. We recommend using a secure delivery method which requires a signature upon receipt such as Royal Mail Recorded Delivery. This does not affect your statutory rights.

All returns should be sent back to us at the following address:

RETURNS DEPT
CIRCLE ONE SURF Co
MARSH LANE
LORDS MEADOW INDUSTRIAL ESTATE
CREDITON
DEVON EX17 1ES

If you require an urgent exchange, it would be quickest to place a new order online first, then return the existing item marked (as per our normal returns process) for a full refund.
Please ensure you include your original (or copy of) delivery note with a reason for the return or exchange. If you cannot locate the original delivery note or order details then please provide your full contact name and address (used to place the order) so we can trace the order details.

Returns must be UNUSED with ORIGINAL TAGS attached and in the ORIGINAL packaging (where applicable) and in a resalable condition. This is the only way we can issue a refund or arrange an exchange.
It is usually the case you can re-use the packaging the order came in to send goods back to us. In the case of the Surfboards and related products, please ensure (if possible) you use the original reinforcement material contained in the packaging in order to minimise potential damage.

All returned goods remain your responsibility until they reach us. We advise you use a secure delivery method which requires a signature upon delivery. As soon as returned goods reach us, we will process your refund or exchange as a matter of urgency and inform you of progress via email. Please note all exchanges are dispatched using the cheapest delivery method and postage costs are covered by Circle One.

Faulty Products
Surfboard Delivery: due to their more fragile construction, we make extra effort to pack our surfboards really well in order to minimise damage in transit. It is rare that damages occur but we strongly urge you inspect the board at point of delivery. If you find any damage to the product, please sign as ‘damaged’ and contact us on 0330 043 1256 at your earliest convenience.

DELIVERY

We will make every effort to deliver your order within the time estimate (the estimate is in working days unless otherwise stated) provided on our website. However, this is an estimate, and delivery within the time quoted cannot be guaranteed. If the goods are not delivered within the time we have estimated, please feel free to contact us by telephone or email and we will try to resolve the issue promptly.

Business Days are Mon-Fri not including Bank Holidays.

For all delivery services(except Royal Mail) we are able to give the courier additional delivery instructions (e.g. if no-one home, please leave item in garage etc). Please ensure you provide us with additional info at checkout if this will assist delivery. We deliver to both residential and business/work addresses. It may be more convenient to provide a business address as there is more likelihood someone can take delivery. But it is entirely up to you.

Our courier partners always endeavour to deliver on time, but adverse weather conditions may cause delays.

We will not be liable for any loss caused to you by late delivery over the estimated provided.

It is the buyer’s responsibility to notify us if the goods have not been received within 21 days of the estimated delivery date or receipt of our invoice. If no notification is made within this time period the buyer shall be deemed to have received the goods.

It is the responsibility of each individual to the purchase relevant insurance where applicable and Circle One Surf Company accepts no responsibility for the injury or fatality of an individual or third party whilst using any products sold through ourselves.
