Refund Policy

Go Ahead, Put it Under Your Arm

We know how important it is to feel the board.  That's why stock surfboards can be returned and 100% refunded if you get it and it just doesn't feel right.  That's zero risk to get your dream board.  

Our full priced refund policy lasts 15 days and only applies to full priced stock surfboards under 6'0" in length.  Custom boards are not eligible for returns or refunds.   If 15 days have passed since your purchase of a stock surfboard, it is ineligible for a free return (no shipping charges).  If between 15 and 30 days have passed since your purchase, the unridden board is eligible for a full-price refund but the customer is responsible for shipping charges both ways.  If more than 30 days has passed the board is ineligible for a full refund.

To be eligible for a full priced return, your item must be unused and in the same condition that you received it. It must be packaged very well to ensure that there is no damage during shipping. Damages incurred during a return may be deducted from the full amount.

To complete your return, we require a receipt of proof of purchase.  We will email you a return label, and you will be responsible for packing the board well, and dropping it off to the carrier.  Please allow 30 days from Varial's receipt of the returned item for the refund to process.

Please do not send your surfboard to the shaper. Send all returns to Varial HQ in Ventura, California. Details below.
When refunds will not be granted (if applicable):
  • All surfboards are handmade and may have cosmetic blemishes. Items may vary slightly from photos. Varial will not issue refunds based on cosmetic blemishes.
  • Surfboards can dent, crack, and occasionally break or experience other type of damage. No surfboard is indestructible.  Varial will not issue refunds based upon denting, cracking, breaking, or other damage.
  • Varial will not issue refunds for any item not in its original condition, items that are damaged, or items that are missing parts.   
  • Varial will not issue refunds for any item that is returned more than 30 days after delivery.
  • Gift cards cannot be returned.
