We work very hard to produce the finest products. Every product we sell is covered by a one year warranty. If there is any manufacturing defect in a Burnwater™ product within the warranty period we will work to repair or replace it (shipping charges to Burnwater™ are not reimbursed on warranty items). We reserve the right to decline any product covered under warranty that has been subject to normal wear and tear, misuse or abuse. Please call for authorization before returning any products back to Burnwater™. Each product returned under warranty shall be cleaned by the owner before returning it to Burnwater™.

Caring For Your Paddle

Paddles do incur natural wear and tear and breakdown of materials over time. Taking care of your paddle will significantly extend its life. Here are a few things that you can do to extend the life of your paddle.

  • Practice good technique. Avoid repeatedly striking things such as gunnels, rails, rocks, gravel, concrete or hard surfaces and avoid falling on your paddle.
  • Avoid leaving your paddle in a hot car or similar hot environments like in the sun for prolonged periods of time.
  • Keep your paddle in a paddle bag. Burnwater offers a variety of bags and blade covers that help protect paddles from heat and sun exposure as well as unexpected dings.
  • Rinse all parts of your paddle in fresh water after use in salt water.

Our primary concern with warranties is to get you safely back on the water as soon as possible!

Our goods come with guarantees that cannot be excluded under the Australian Consumer Law. You are entitled to a replacement or refund for a major failure and compensation for any other reasonably foreseeable loss or damage. You are also entitled to have the goods repaired or replaced if the goods fail to be of acceptable quality and the failure does not amount to a major failure.

Limited One-Year Warranty

Burnwater guarantees to you, the original owner, that our product will be free from defects in materials and craftsmanship for one year from date of purchase. If you experience problems with a Burnwater product, return it to us and include your contact information, claim details, and please provide proof of purchase. Defective products will be replaced or repaired at the discretion of Burnwater. Burnwater shall not be responsible for incidental or consequential damage, unreasonable use or improper care. Any paddle returned with incomplete information will be set aside for a reasonable amount of time and no action will be taken until we are contacted.

Non-Warranty Repair Policy

Damages due to accidents, improper use, wear and tear or other non-warranty issues will be repaired at a reasonable cost plus shipping and handling. Please send your paddle postage paid with your details and we will repair it after a quote and your approval with payment. If the paddle is irreparable we may choose to offer a replacement paddle at a discount. This will be considered on an individual basis.
You may always e-mail us with warranty questions or ETA on returns. If you have returned a paddle and have not heard back, please contact us to confirm we have received it. We are happy to talk with you at any time.
