In addition to local San Diego demo boards, we occasionally get returned and exchanged paddle boards that have been used. We batch test and process them for grab bag sales we do a few times a year. We blast out what's available to our email list and they typically sell out within a few hours. We've sold 60 used paddle boards in under an hour before. It's a great deal for customers and it helps us clear out any returns from the warehouse to keep things tidy.
There are two classes of used stand up paddle boards that we typically receive and resell:
Option 1: Used Paddle boards that have been tested and proven to hold air and function. Almost new, with only minor blemishes. Likely only ridden 1-5 times.
Option 2: Slightly more used boards either with cosmetic blemishes or more wear and tear. May have a small leak, but it will be circled and a patch kit is included in your order to repair yourself.
Between these larger grab bag sales on used paddle boards, we periodically list used paddleboards for sale here. Our stock varies, so check back here. Don't bother calling us, as if we have used boards available they're be live on the site here or you will hear about it via our email list (you can sign up at the bottom of any website page).
At Tower, we've got a pretty generous return policy on used paddle boards. If our customers are unhappy with their purchase, we typically accept the boards back. So sometimes the SUP boards have been used extensively and come back and sometimes you couldn't even tell it was a used stand up paddle board... it's literally unwrapped in the original packaging and the customer just changed their mind. Regardless, if a paddle board has previously been sold, we mark it as a used paddle board for sale. These are incredible deals when you can find them and that's why our grab bag sales sell out in just hours.
If you purchase a used inflatable paddle board that has been marked as "requires repair", these can typically be fixed with a simple paddleboard accessories patch kit which is included in your order.
Note all sales are final for used boards. We do not accept returns and these boards do not come with a warranty. These have been tested rigorously and are proven to be repairable, if even needed.
