How do I return an item via mail within Australia?

We accept the return of full price & sale items returned within 30 days of purchase provided your item(s) are unused, unworn and undamaged, and include all original tags, labels and retail packaging.

Step 1: Prepare

Include the completed returns slip (If you don’t have the returns stickers from your parcel, don't stress, you're welcome to state your return information on a blank piece of paper and enclose it with your package)
Include proof of purchase (order number)

Step 2: Pack

Reuse the original packaging (box or satchel) and ensure you include only unused, unworn and undamaged items (including all tags, labels and retail packaging). You must also return any free promotional items you received with your original order.

Wetsuits & fragile items such as hats & flasks must be returned in a box & shoes must be returned in their box, enclosed in a satchel/bag.

Apply the supplied shipping address Label to the outside of the retail packaging
(This is an address label only and is not prepaid postage.)

Step 3: Post

Loyalty members with a prepaid return label may drop their return to a red post box. Non loyalty member returns are at the customer’s expense. You can attend a Post Office to pay for your return or use either of the following two options, Australia Post Return Portal or Parcel Point Return Portal.

Be sure to keep a copy of your return tracking number. We recommend you use registered post for all returns, as we cannot be responsible for items should they be lost in transit
