Our dedicated drysuit repair workshop has been operational since June 2006. Here we undertake the replacement of seals, zips, valves and boots as well as doing alterations, leak repairs and testing on all makes of diving drysuits, sailing drysuits, water-ski suits and kayak jackets. We keep stock of a vast array of drysuit components so repairs can normally be done in just a few days. Our workmanship and components supplied are fully guaranteed.
If you don’t live in Cape Town the best way of getting your suit to us is with PostNet. Pop it in a box addressed to; BlueFlash 073 1676677, care of PostNet Steenberg Village. Take it to your nearest PostNet branch and they will take it from there. It will cost between R100 and R200 and the return postage (back to your PostNet branch) will be included in the repairs invoice. Turn-around times vary between just a few days to a few weeks depending on how busy we are.
Dive shops can also make use of our services to repair their client’s drysuits at trade rates.
