In addition to our local San Diego demo boards, we occasionally will get returns or exchanged paddle boards sent back to us. We hand test and inflate every one to ensure we label and diagnose each return correctly. Once we have a decent batch of these boards we will have our "Grab Bag sale" and upload them online.
Our used boards are labeled into one of two categories:
Option 1: Used boards that have been tested and proven to hold air and function. These boards are almost new, with only minor blemishes. They have likely only been ridden a handful of times, if at all. These include new returns/once ridden boards and others.
Option 2: May have noticeable cosmetic blemishes or more wear and tear. If we have noticed that the board has a small leak, it will be circled and a patch kit will be included with your order so you can repair it yourself.
Used boards tend to sell quickly, as they’re still perfectly usable SUPs and come at rock-bottom prices.
If you’re looking for a used SUP for sale near you, you can find one in two different ways.
At Tower Paddle Boards, we have a generous return policy: If our customers are unhappy with their purchase for any reason, we typically accept the boards back. Sometimes, a paddle board will be sent back after it was used extensively, but sometimes, you can’t even tell it was a used stand-up paddle board. In some cases, the customer just changed their mind, so the board is returned still wrapped in its original packaging. Regardless, if a paddle board has previously been sold, we mark it as part of our stock of used stand-up paddle boards for sale. We also add in demo boards from our San Diego store. All of these boards are tested before they are resold. Most of them are in perfectly fine condition, but if you buy a used inflatable paddle board for sale that has been marked as “requires repair,” it can typically be fixed with a simple patch kit, which is included in your order.
Please note that all sales are final for used boards. We do not accept returns on used SUPs, and these boards do not come with a warranty. They have been tested rigorously and are proven to be repairable, if repair is even needed.
