If you find a fault with your wetsuit during this period (from the date of delivery), please contact us at email@example.com and we will advise from here.
Include your receipt for proof of purchase with your name, phone number and a description (including photos) of the fault and how it could have occurred.
YBS, will decide at their sole discretion if the fault is a manufacturing fault and therefore repair or replace. Warranty does not apply if the wet suit is on sold or given to another person.
Safe use and care when diving and climbing into your wetsuit (only recommendations)
- It is recommended you fit your wet suit after your skin and wet suits are wet. Friendly lubricants can be used as an aid such as baby shampoo.
- After every use you can rinse your suit with fresh water well, so the stitching is rinsed of salt.
- Hang your suit to dry in the shade.
- Store away undercover, away from harsh elements.
- Avoid having hard contact with sharp reefs or structures that can damage your suit if possible.
- We know the difference between use and abuse, so please take care when fitting and removing your wet suits, your fingers and nails can penetrate the suit and put extreme stress on the stitching and seams.
- Do not store wet.
- Do not apply considerable grip and force to pull a suit over your legs, arms and body. The seams will separate, and grip marks will be embedded in the suit.
- Do not leave in your car where it can be cooked, these suits can degrade quickly with extreme heat in-particular a locked vehicle in summer.
- Chloride, spas, bleaches or chemicals this material does not like.
- Avoid contact with diving knifes, spear tips and other sharp objects during storage or on deck while travelling as they can pierce your suit.
We don’t believe the following examples are reasonable claims for warranty;
- You brush against a gnarly reef (the arms are not cut proof when trying to grab crayfish in tight spots).
- They will not survive a washing machine, iron or tumble dryer.
- If you use your suits a few times a week for many hours each session over several weeks your suit will wear.
- Your pet plays with the suit, puncture wounds.
