    Our online Reviews policy is aimed to ensure that the overall impression created by a body of reviews on the review platform is not misleading. In accordance with this policy we will:

    • Only include reviews of genuine acquirers and users of the products and not include fake reviews by us or related parties promoting products;
    • Ensure only reviews specifically about product are published and comments unrelated / about delivery / experience are removed
    • Not selectively remove or edit negative reviews;
    • Reviews may come from other Regions where Rip Curl trades and the same product is sold. (i.e. the same Tee/style code could be sold in Australia, USA, Europe, Brazil and NZ).
    • Rip Curl employees receive Product as part of their employment agreement. Any reviews will be genuine and unbiased.
    • Disclose if relevant any incentives provided to reviewers (and if incentives are involved, ensure the reviewer is available if the review is positive or negative).Disclose any commercial relationship with a platform which publishes our reviews
  • Rip Curl doesn’t publish an expressed warranty on the garments we make. If you feel that a product that has been used under normal conditions has failed prematurely due to manufacturing fault or faulty materials, please refer to the return instructions. Our tech team will review the item for warranty consideration. Warranty status will be determined on a case-by-case basis.
