BOTE® makes every effort to produce boards to the highest quality and standards in the industry. We do quality checks in our factories and in our warehouses in an effort to guarantee each board’s quality before shipping to Authorized BOTE Dealers or direct to customer. Because of the nature of paddle boarding we cannot warranty the performance of any board or shape for individual riders and varying levels of skills and abilities. Furthermore, we cannot guarantee against damage or breakage and cannot protect or warranty against circumstances outside of our control.
The warranty registration form should be completed online within 30 days of original purchase to be activated. You should keep your sales receipt should it be required in the future for proof of purchase. The online Warranty Registration Form can be found here.
