Riptide Swim Shop strongly recommends the CUSTOMER come to the an fitting session in order to be properly fitted for their purchase. Riptide Swim Shop cannot be responsible for any faulty measurement made by the CUSTOMER or any subsequent failure of the garment to fit properly.

Some individuals are sensitive and/or allergic to latex and/or rubber intended for extended skin contact. Such sensitivity and/or allergic reaction can be severe. The CUSTOMER affirms the recommendation of Riptide Swim Shop to test a small patch of skin against the latex or rubber material before the purchase of the garment.

Return Policy
Thank you for your purchase! We hope the entire order process has been a good one and that you'll find it beneficial when ordering with us again. If by chance you'd like to return an item under our "No-Risk 14-day Online Return Policy", please adhere to the following:

1.) The customer is responsible for the cost of shipment on all returns being sent back to "Riptide Swim Shop." Any return shipping fees will be charged to the customer as well.

2.) No returns will be credited after 14 days. After that, items may be exchanged only per agreement with Riptide Swim Shop. If you ship your product back to Riptide Swim Shop and the 14-day period has passed, your product will not be accepted by Riptide Swim Shop and will be shipped back to you AT YOUR EXPENSE.

3.) All items must be returned with the following:

  • The original tags and warranty information if there is any
  • A copy of invoice or receipt
  • Manufacturer's original packaging
  • Written course of action desired (credit account, exchange, etc..) - see below

4.) Only wetsuits may be returned "test-driven" (for sizing purposes) within the 14-day window. All other items must be returned in brand new condition. Any damage or unreasonable wear on "test-driven" items will be charged to the customer at the discretion of Riptide Swim Shop.

5.) Any damaged products must be reported to Riptide Swim Shop within two business days of receiving your package. It is the customer and/or receiver's responsibility to hold onto any packaging materials of any package or product that is damaged and requires a claim to be filed by Riptide Swim Shop.

Price Matching

Our main goal is our customer's (YOUR) satisfaction. If you find a better price from another retailer we would like the opportunity to match that offer. Simply provide us with a documented offer (email, fax, national print ad, or link to their website) and we will verify the lower pricing. Then, once we can confirm that this dealer has the same product(s) and/or sizes in stock, we'll match their offer.

You can place your order with us either through our website or by calling us at 703-753-5111. Please note that we do have to reserve the right not to match the offer for whatever reason. Let us know if you have any questions, and remember that we're here to offer you the best service possible.

Thanks and we look forward to working with you.

Discount ID Policy
Riptide Swim Shop will not be able to extend any special group related pricing or discounts to any individual without a valid club membership card. All members of clubs and organizations registered with Riptide Swim Shop, must present a valid club/organization card with a future expiration date.

Please understand that we offer discounts to a large number of groups, and it is just unfeasible for all of our employees to recognize or personally know which customers are members of a club or organization.

Furthermore, the discounts are partly designed to be a benefit for the members, and a reward for belonging to such groups. Consequently, it is important for the groups and organizations themselves that we require proof of membership; otherwise the benefit looses its meaning.

Please note that our system does NOT allow us to store discount codes attached to the customer information, and at the same time assign an expiration date. Because membership to the various groups changes often, we rely on the membership cards in order to offer the valid corresponding discounts.

Thank you for your cooperation.
