Returns & Shipping
Due to the increased demand on shipping networks we have seen a sharp increase in shipping rates on freight sized items both within the U.S. and abroad. Unfortunately this has affected our Free Shipping and Flat Rate shipping programs. If you are purchasing any oversized items (Kayaks, Paddleboards, Windsurf boards, Trailer etc...) there may be additional shipping charges needed prior to shipping your order. Our staff will reach out to you direct if this is the case. If you would like to know prior to making a purchase please call our sales team at 954-523-7778 or email Orders@liquidsurfandsail.com. We apologize for any inconvenience and hope that this will normalize soon so that we can continue to offer great delivery rates to all of our customers.
Kayaks, SUPs, Masts (over 460), sail boats and some larger items require special handling and therefore cost a bit more to ship. Our Residential Delivery and Commercial Business have shipping fees that range between $125 and $300 and are delivered using a freight shipping company. The average time frame for this method of shipping is between 3 to 15 days* depending on your location.
*This is an estimated timeframe based on previous orders - it is not a guarantee of delivery date.
Our shipping fees only apply to products shipped to the 48 contiguous states. If you live in Alaska or Hawaii, please contact us prior to placing a kayak order. Some oversized kayaks may have a higher fee associated with them. In each case, the surcharge will be noted on the product details page.
Please note that due to the increased volume of new orders some of our warehouses are experiencing shipping delays of 3-5+ business days.
We greatly apologize and our teams our working tirelessly to keep up with demand.

The dispatcher at your local terminal can aid you with your delivery date and can often arrange a morning or afternoon delivery. Please work with that person to get a time that is convenient for you.
To assure accurate, safe, and fast delivery of your shipment, it is critical that you read this email carefully and thoroughly.
It is required that you inspect your entire shipment before the driver leaves. Please remove the items from the packaging and carefully inspect them. * WE REQUIRE you to NOTE ANY DAMAGE found to packaging materials and to actual products received ON the DELIVERY BILL of LADING.
Also - if damage is found save all packaging for that item. Do not throw away--The freight company may want to inspect it. IMPORTANT: If damage is cosmetic and you want to keep the item You must write “Damaged” & also be descriptive of the damage to the item on the BOL . DO NOT write subject to inspection as this will not cover your damage or claim. The noted damage allows us to file a claim on your behalf. If the damage is beyond cosmetic and you want a new items(s) You must refuse the item completely. Once you sign the BOL, and do not note damage, even if the damage is concealed (this is why you must take the item out of the box packaging material & inspect while driver is there) you are releasing us & the freight company from all liability.
DO NOT Throw Away Any Packaging until you verify all items of your order are present. Small items such as fin bolts and screws can be lost if proper care is not taken with packaging. They are often found in the bubble pack that boards are wrapped up in. Again, please keep all packaging until you have located ALL your items and parts of your order.
If you find the item is damaged beyond repair then you can accept all the other items in your shipment, but REFUSE the damaged items/board. Repackage the board as best as possible and put it back on the truck on the spot, then contact us at 954-523-7778 and ask for Jesse. All damages must be reported the same day of delivery in order to file a claim.
Important additional info: Vent Screws are part of most modern new windsurfing / SUP boards. These vent screws are typically packed in bubble pack and shipped in the mast box area or fin of your board. It is VERY IMPORTANT that you secure these snug in place before you use your board in the water. Failure to do this will allow water to seep into the hull that can lead to problems and weight gain of your board. The vent plug hole openings are usually located in front of or behind the mast box on the deck of a board. You only have 48 hours to file a claim with us. YOU MUST INSPECT ALL shipments WITHIN 48 HOURS or you lose your chance to file a freight claim.
