WARRANTY POLICY

Vanhunks Boarding warrants that this product, when purchased from an authorized Vanhunks Boarding dealer by a retail customer, will be free from defects in materials and workmanship for 12-months from the date of purchase by the original retail customer. All hardware and components carry a 6-month warranty. This warranty is solely for the benefit of the original retail purchaser and may not be assigned. For retail customer Limited Warranty claims, proof of purchase from an authorized Vanhunks Boarding dealer is required.

The warranty is valid only when the product is registered in the support section of www.vanhunksboarding.com within seven (7) days from the date of purchase.

The warranty is valid only when this product is used for normal recreational activities and does not cover products used in rental or commercial operations. Vanhunks will make the final warranty determination, which may require inspection and photos of the equipment, clearly showing the defect(s). If necessary, this information must be sent to the Vanhunks distributor in your country.

If a product is deemed defective by Vanhunks, the warranty covers the repair or replacement of the faulty product. However, Vanhunks will not be responsible for any costs, losses, or damages incurred due to the failure of this product’s use.

This warranty is void if any unauthorized repair, change, or modification has been made to any part of the equipment.

The warranty for any repaired or replaced equipment is effective from the date of the original purchase only.

The original purchase receipt must accompany all warranty claims. In addition, the name of the retailer and date of purchase must be clear and legible.

There are no warranties that extend beyond the warranty specified herein.

Any repair or replacement of any product under this Limited Warranty is not available for ordinary wear and tear, including scratches or paint chips, or any damage caused by misuse, abuse, unauthorized modification or repairs, accident, heat, excessive exposure to sunlight, excessive exposure to cold, improper handling, storage, maintenance or care; incorrect setup, use in commercial, rental or teaching environments; use in reef waves, shore break or off the water; any blow or impact with a hard object or any other irresponsible use.
