The Kitesurf Centre Shop would like you to enjoy your purchases as soon as possible so we strive to dispatch your order within 1-2 working days of it being placed (subject to payment authorisation and stock availability). If there is going to be a delay for any reason, we’ll let you know. Please ensure that your email address and phone number on the order are ones you can be contacted on.

Any items or combined items with in an order which weight over 2kg in total, fall into the ‘large item category’ which changes the cost of shipping for international orders.
On some large items such as kite packages, boards of all kinds and stand up paddleboards, the price of shipping sometimes differs to certain countries (and areas of the UK as well occasionally). In these cases, the customer will not be charged automatically at checkout for any extra costs incurred, but will occasionally be contacted if there are any costs that The Kitesurf Centre cannot reasonably cover. The customer will be given the choice to continue with the order or cancel if necessary.
Surfboards have an additional £29.99 shipping cost. Due to a huge percentage arriving damaged we now only use reliable (more expensive) couriers
VAT Free Purchases
If you live outside the UK you are eligible for VAT free (20%) purchases. This is automatically deducted at basket and checkout when you click ‘Calculate shipping’ and change your delivery country, but please contact us if you would like further information. The order may be subject to certain import duties within your own country.
This also applies to BFPO & forwarding addresses associated with the military. Please contact us so we can zero rate the VAT on the order.
Delivery Times are based on standard working days (i.e. Monday to Friday, no Saturday deliveries, excluding public holidays, etc.) Orders for next day delivery must be made by 11am, but please call us as if it is after this time we should be able to offer next day orders through up to 2pm. Next working day delivery can only apply to Mainland UK.
Please note next day delivery is never a guaranteed service even with ‘Express Delivery’ as delays with courier services which are out of our control may occur. It’s always advisable to order as much is advance as possible to avoid any problems. The Kitesurf Centre will not be held responsible for any delayed or missed deliveries.
If shipping to a work address or requesting to leave the order with a neighbour it is the responsibility of the customer to locate the package once delivered.
If a delivery is missed or not collected from the local depot by the customer and automatically returned to The Kitesurf Centre, a redelivery charge will apply to send the order for a 2nd time, even if the order qualified for free shipping on the first delivery attempt.
Please check the details when receiving any consignment from the delivery driver; before signing check if the package is damaged, if so please refuse to sign for the item or sign for as ‘damaged’ and make the driver aware of any issue. Once the package has been signed for and accepted the courier or ourselves cannot be held responsible for any damage and the item will not be replaced. Please also check you have received the correct amount of packages before signing as sometimes orders are split into multiple bags or boxes.
