O'Neill Warranty

Wetsuit Warranty:

Our wetsuit warranty only applies to wetsuits purchased from an authorised retailer within Australia or New Zealand. Our warranty is not valid on wetsuits bought second hand or bought from non-authorised online retailers such as eBay, Gumtree, Facebook or other auction sites. It also excludes wetsuits purchased from stores or websites outside of Australia/New Zealand.

The O’Neill wetsuit warranty = 12 months from date of original purchase

If the product is found to be defective under normal use and proper care, O’Neill will repair or replace the product at our sole discretion. The decision to replace or repair a product is made by O’Neill Warranty Department after receipt of the defective product. Defective products should be returned to O'Neill clean, dry and correctly folded (see 'How to post your wetsuit' guide).

Warranty Process:

If you purchased your product from an authorised retailer (physical store or online retailer) you must contact that retailer and return it to them along with your receipt and the retailer will facilitate the warranty claim with O’Neill.

If you bought your wetsuit from AU.ONEILL.COM or NZ.ONEILL.COM please click on the link below to access our Warranty Portal.

You will need your original order number to start this process which can be found in an order confirmation email or shipping/delivery email you would have received at time of purchase. If you do not have this please contact our team for help. Please note that we will not accept wetsuits that are still wet so please allow time to properly dry your wetsuit before returning.
