Warranty & Care

Thank you for choosing Rip Curl

Please review the information below for any questions you may have regarding service, warranty or repairs of your Rip Curl product. If you're unable to obtain the information you're looking for, we'll be happy to assist you. The below information applies only to the express warranties that we choose to offer over certain products as set out below. Our goods also come with guarantees that cannot be excluded under the Australian Consumer Law. You are entitled to a replacement or refund for a major failure and compensation for any other reasonably foreseeable loss or damage. You are also entitled to have the goods repaired or replaced if the goods fail to be of acceptable quality and the failure does not amount to a major failure.

 Due to the ongoing COVID-19 situation, our Service Center is operating at a limited capacity so you can expect a delay in our turnaround times. If you have any questions, please contact us at us.servicecenter@ripcurl.com. Thank you for your understanding and patience.
