Grom Soft Top Handboard

Received my handboard a couple days ago. I live in Pa so it’s not the season for handboarding but I’m stoked about trying it out. Trip to Myrtle Beach in April. I’ll be riding waves!!

Free (or discounted) return shipping would be nice.

I followed the sizing instructions for the fins and hoped that they’d fit me. They were slightly too small. When I asked for return info I found that the return shipping was on me. So I just spent 37.00 to send back 80.00 fins. Needless to say it was an expensive mistake that I won’t be making again. This is another reason Amazon and other large companies are killing the little(r) guys. Although from their “shark tank” video it seems like they’re doing pretty well. The Grom looks cool. Hopefully it’ll be so fun that it will minimize the fin sizing mistake. Headed to Mission Beach this weekend!

Oh Karl I am so sorry! Thank you for understanding how expensive shipping costs are and how it really does hurt small businesses when we have to compete with Amazon. I hope you have so much fun at the beach!

Jessica Murray
these things are so cool

While we haven't actually tried them out yet because they are a xmas gift, they look awesome and seem like they are of great quality. I'm sure my beachy sons will love them.

Thank you for your purchase of the Grom Soft Top Handboard, Jessica! We're so excited to hear that you and your sons are going to have a blast using them at the beach this summer. Please don't hesitate to reach out if you have any questions

Order, never shipped

I’m still hoping to receive the product that I payed for for on 11/25. Why is shipping taking so long?
