Please provide us with your name, address and contact details, when you bought the product from us and what the fault is, together with pictures.




Terms and Conditions 

For the original retail purchaser (“Consumer”), Wave Sport kayaks by Gaybo Limited are warranted against material or manufacturing defects in the hull and deck for three (3) years from date of original purchase of the kayak. Parts, accessories, and outfitting are warranted for a period of one (1) year against material or manufacturing defects from the date of purchase.

During the first year of ownership: this warranty covers repair or replacement of the hull and deck, outfitting, and all parts and accessories free of charge.

During the third year of ownership: this warranty covers repair or replacement of the hull and deck up to 60% of the original retail price. 

This limited warranty is only valid with the purchase of a Wave Sport kayak from a Wave Sport authorised dealer.  This warranty is non-transferable.

Activating Your Warranty

Thank you for choosing to purchase a Wave Sport kayak. To activate this limited warranty you must complete the online warranty registration form within 30 days of original purchase. Please retain your original purchase receipt for presentation in the unlikely event of a warranty claim and contact your dealer or an authorised distributor should a claim be necessary.

Obtaining Warranty Service

If you have a problem with your kayak and you suspect that it may be due to defective materials or workmanship, contact the nearest authorised Wave Sport kayak dealer and arrange to have the problem inspected.  Consumer is responsible for delivery to, and pickup from, the closest authorised dealer. 

If the authorised Wave Sport dealer's inspection indicates a defect that is attributable to materials or workmanship, Gaybo Limited will repair or replace your Wave Sport kayak at the company's option, based on the time of ownership corresponding to the warranty coverage schedule detailed above. For a covered warranty repair or replacement, the Consumer will be responsible for paying the applicable percentage of the original retail price, as detailed in the warranty coverage schedule detailed above, as well as all shipping and handling fees.  Proof of purchase such as a sales receipt may be required.  If repairs or evaluation are required by Wave Sport at its manufacturing facility, the Consumer will be responsible for all shipping and handling fees. 

If service is required in a country that is not the country of purchase, Consumer will comply with all applicable export laws and regulations and be responsible for all customs duties, value add tax (VAT), and other associated taxes and charges. For international service, the Wave Sport Distributor may repair or exchange defective products and parts with comparable products and parts that comply with local standards. 

Gaybo Limited retains the right to satisfy warranty via repair or replacement of products or of components deemed defective. In addition, Wave Sport reserves the right to replace original kayaks or equipment with comparable current products.

This warranty gives you specific legal rights and you may also have other rights.  For Consumers who are covered by country, state, or provincial consumer protection laws or regulations, the benefits from this warranty are in addition to all rights conveyed by such consumer protection laws and regulations.
