Please look after the suit in your care; if you follow our guidelines on how to use your wetsuit damage is very unlikely to occur.
We really don’t want to charge you any more than is necessary (we try to keep our hire charges as fair a possible) but to cover our repair costs damage to wetsuits will be charged at £20 per small hole (up to 1 cm) and £40 per larger hole or tear.
Wetsuits that are not returned by the agreed time will be charged at full RRP. Our full terms and conditions can be found here.
