Aqua Marina Warranty Information

Aqua Marina iSUPs and IKs come with a 1-year warranty against manufacturing defects. They also include a 30-day return period, however this only applies for unused equipment, so there is no opportunity for a trial period. Questions, customer support, and orders for Aqua Marina products are handled by their network of distributors. Zoppinh, the US distributor for Aqua Marina, is available for questions or support via email, online chat, social media or by phone. We would like to see Aqua Marina support their boards for a longer period of time, as we do think they will outlast their 1-year warranty, especially for their Advanced series boards.
