Pakaloa™ Lifetime Warranty
Lifetime Pakaloa™ Paddleboard Warranty
Your Pakaloa inflatable paddle board is made of superior materials and by stringent quality standards. With adequate maintenance, it will give you years of reliable use. But as with most products, it is subject to wear and tear. If you eventually need replacement parts, technical assistance, or product/service information, please contact our Customer Service Department.
We design our products to be repairable — meaning that, we can easily change a defective part rather than having to replace the entire product.
As part of our mission to make paddleboards that last, Pakaloa warrants to the original purchaser that our Paddleboard will be free from defects in material and quality for Lifetime from the date of purchase (the “Pakaloa Paddleboard Warranty”). The Pakaloa Paddleboard Warranty is a commitment to our customers, an expression of our confidence in the quality of our products, and a statement that we stand behind that quality.
The Pakaloa Paddleboard Warranty is offered solely to the original retail purchaser and is not transferable to subsequent purchasers. Pakaloa’s sole obligation under the Pakaloa Paddleboard Warranty is to, at our option, repair or replace the defective part(s) at no additional charge if we determine in our sole discretion that the Pakaloa Paddleboard Warranty covers the defect.
How To Utilize The Pakaloa Paddleboard Warranty
Pakaloa must be notified in writing of any claim under the Pakaloa Paddleboard Warranty. Please contact us with the following information so that we can best assist you:
- Order Number

If you buy the Pakaloa Paddleboard through a Pakaloa reseller, you need to send us your invoice from the reseller ( with your First & Last Name on it).
Upon receiving notification of a claim, a Pakaloa representative will follow up with you within one business day with the next steps.
All warranty claims are subject to inspection by Pakaloa's Fraud and Ethical Team. We reserve the right to determine whether or not damages are covered by the Pakaloa Paddleboard Warranty, in our sole discretion.
