If that happens we will do our best to replace your broken paddle or fix it for a price within a certain time period of the purchase.

If a blade or the shaft of your paddle breaks outside of the time period allotted for your type of paddle, we can still fix or replace the damaged part most of the time. For this service, we will charge only the cost of the new part and shipping costs;  there will be no labor fees.
