Here at 24-7 Boardsports we strive to provide the best value for money shipping prices on all your purchases. This page should give you an indication of your shipping price, or whether you might need to contact us for a quote before placing your order.

0.4-1.49kg £3.95 (Royal Mail Small Parcel Rate)
1.5-2.99kg £6.95 (Royal Mail Small Parcel Rate)
3-9.9kg £11.95 (Parcelforce Courier Rate)
10-14.9kg £20.00 (Parcelforce Courier Rate)

More than 30kg £50.00 (Tuffnells Oversize Rate)
With 2020 being a traumatic year due to Covid19, which has lead to a lack of stock and then put on top of this the implications from leaving the European Union and the various customs agencies and postal services struggling to cope with the increase in demand we have taken the decision to only serve the Mainland UK market at the moment. We hope to be back online with foreign orders in 2022.
The website shipping calculator isn't perfect - especially on non UK Mainland addresses! We will try our best to get you the best price shipping and we will refund your shipping if you are charged too much. On some occasions we may have to contact you and request additional funds for shipping. There are various reasons we might have to do this:
- You live within the British Isles but outside Mainland UK: Northern Ireland, Scottish Islands, Isle of Wight, Scillies etc may attract a surcharge from the courier companies. Post is usually fine, but please contact us for a quote before ordering anything that might need a courier.
- Fixed Cost and Free Shipping: We are a UK based company, so any fixed shipping prices or free shipping offers apply ONLY to UK Mainland addresses. If you order to any other location we may ask you for additional funds.
- You have ordered something really BIG! SUP and Windsurf Boards/Booms are light but big and our couriers charge us extra to ship them to non Mainland UK addresses.
- You live somewhere nice! Orders to non European countries can vary in price significantly, our shipping calculator only knows you are outside of Europe somewhere. Deliveries to Australia, USA, Middle East, South America, Africa, & Sunny Tropical Islands with Palm Trees, may carry a greater cost than the price the website quotes. The good news is that we can often take off the UK VAT (currently 20%) from your purchases, which we can then use to cover all or part of your shipping costs.
- We cocked up: Yes, this does sometimes happen... The shipping calculator has been updated to fit in with the Google Shopping system and we are fine tuning it as we go. If you think somethings wrong with your shipping price please don't hesitate to get in touch!
- We don't ship to your location: Unfortunately we are currently unable to ship into Brazil or Russia. Our couriers are refusing to deliver there and the post is extremely erratic, with items taking months to arrive, being returned by customs for no reason, or simply getting stolen/lost. If you want to arrange a courier to collect that's absolutely fine with us, although we may ask you for a bank transfer rather than card payment to ensure our payment security.
If you think any of the above might apply to you, please contact our friendly team before you order on +44(0)2380 894000 or firstname.lastname@example.org and we will do our very best to help you out.
You may return goods to us within 14 days of purchase for a refund. Please notify us in writing (email/website return request) of your intent to return any items ordered.
Goods must be returned to us at: 24-7 Boardsports, Jack Maynard Road, Calshot, Southampton, SO45 1BR. Items must be unused and in resaleable condition with any original tags attached.
Please include your receipt and a note with any goods returned, so we know who the goods are from and whether you want a refund or replacement.
Unless we have made an error with the order or website listing or specifically stated otherwise, return postage will be at your expense.
If you have any questions please give us a call on 02380 894000
