Great company!! Had a problem with a pair of Hyperlite boots. Buywake was so responsive to my email! Got my warranty credit from Hyperlite within a couple of days. Really impressive customer service!

A discount code I used very recently did not work. Maybe it expired Idk but it sucked paying full price :p

Response from Eric E., Buywake Representative
Thanks again for giving us a look Derek. Sorry we couldn't come down on price. All current year model snow and wake gear are only eligible for discounts a few times a year. These dates are established by our brands, as well. Existing or previous coupon codes will not apply. But, sign up to our email list so you're the first to know when a new sale is on the way. We are grateful for the support and the opportunity to earn your business.

I had a great experience with the website and ordering. FedEx took longer than expected for delivery. I live about an hour from your warehouse but it took over a week for delivery.

Be careful with returns. If you use the product and don't like it it will be non returnable.....I rather purchase from another company with more customer satisfaction.... seems to be a disconnect since a customer can not always determine if they are satisfied with a product by Viewing it in the box. I understand now and will now and will be more careful when making purchases online

Response from Eric E., Buywake Representative
So sorry you were dissatisfied with your ballast bag. At the moment, we do not offer a trial period on merchandise purchased through our site. However, we are taking your criticism seriously and will work on ways to institute a demo program to help create more satisfaction. In the meantime, we are always here to offer suggestions and help answer any concerns you might have prior to making a purchase.

Really simple and easy purchase with information on the items loaded for buyers to read. Too good that its actually borderline dangerous for the wallet cause it deletes any doubts in my head or the "should i buy it or should i not?" thoughts about purchasing the items. As soon as the button was clicked no time for regrets and just had to wait for the product to arrive so that I can shred in it! much love! all the way on the other side of the world, singapore!

Response from Eric E., Buywake Representative
We are so grateful for your business, Fahmy. Thanks so much for giving us a shot. Enjoy your new gear and shred it up in Singapore. Thanks again for your support.

your reviews aren't working. They would have been helpful. Because of this I took the product I used before, which isn't that bad

$40 shipping for 4 bolts is outrageous. twice the price of the bolts themselves.
Fast delivery but it cost me a arm and a leg

Response from Eric E., Buywake Representative
I totally feel you, Justin. Shipping to Australia from our warehouse in the United States can be costly for sure. Please know that all of our shipping rates are fed directly from FedEx and include our earned discount from which we pass the savings on to our customers. We do not mark up shipping rates at all, it is just expensive to ship across the world.

Took a while to get some wakeboard handle options. But now that you have some, I'm excited to get my new handle.

Response from Eric E., Buywake Representative
Hi and thank you for the opportunity to earn your business! <br /><br />We had some shipping delays with our manufacturers, but we're ready to go for the new year. Continue to check out our online catalog moving in to Spring and Summer for more fresh product. <br /><br />Glad we could finally get you dialed in and thanks again for your support!<br /><br /><br />- Ambush Board Co.

From start to finish the attention and support from the staff at BuyWake was excellent, resolving every doubt I had immediately and attentively. However my shipment was international and, even though I know this is not BuyWake's fault, it would be nice if they let you know explicitly that there may be other charges from customs in your country.

Other than that and overall it was a great shopping experience.

Not a lot of choice (few boards, but probably because it's the end of the year).
More importantly it took me 2 days to pay! The system refused my credit card (no reason for this, I used the same on buywake a few months ago). Then I tried to pay through Paypal but ended up caught in a strange "payment loop": I placed the order -> was directed on Paypal -> confirmed on Paypal -> sent back to Buywake -> asked to place the order -> placed the order -> was directed on Paypal -> confirmed on Paypal -> sent back to Buywake -> asked to place the order -> placed the order -> ... I eventually gave up hoping I would not be charged 4 times... And tried again the next day. I love buywake but this was a pretty bad shopping experience. I hope all customers are as motivated as me!

Response from Eric E., Buywake Representative
<p>Hey, Arnaud. &nbsp;Thanks for your feedback, as well as your support over the years.<br /><br />First, you are correct in that our current selection is limited due to the fact that we're nearing the end of the 2017 model year...and we don't have a whole lot of product left. &nbsp;The good news is that all new 2018 gear will be arriving shortly.<br /><br />Most importantly, I fully apologize for the troubles you had at checkout.<br />I took a look at your attempts to pay by credit card...and it appears that the issues happened with your credit card company rather than with our fraud detection solution.<br />I also did some extensive testing on our PayPal integration...and everything seems to be working as expected.<br />Thank you for sticking with it and pushing your order through. &nbsp;We fully appreciate the support, and we know you're going to be hyped on the product you selected.<br />If you'd like to go over this further, please get with us over the phone (706-521-0315), via email (<a href="" target="_blank" rel="noopener"></a>), or by live chat.<br /><br /><br />Thanks again, Arnaud<br /><br />Eric E.</p>

I used the chat live icon and Billy was very helpful. I ordered my items on a Wednesday and everything arrived that Saturday. Thanks to Billy and everyone at Buy Wake for user friendly web site.

Added in a womens competition vest and the shopping cart would not allow me to pick shipping anymore so had to remove the item to proceed with purchase.

Response from Eric E., Buywake Representative
Hi Dean,

Sorry to hear you weren't able to couple the life vest with your existing order. Definitely seems a bit odd.

We do not want to leave you hanging and if you still wish to proceed, I will be more than happy to ship the vest to you without any additional shipping charges, assuming your gear is being shipped in the United States. If it is shipping outside of the United States, maybe we can come up with a creative solution to keep the cost as low as possible.

At your earliest convenience, please contact us at 800.709.9253 and we will be more than happy to get your vest on the way.

Thanks Dean!

JT - Sales Manager
