    dear friends

    i WAS thinking the same. But they sent me email, explained the problem.. and Sent me my Flow bindings in 3 days.

    They literally fixed every problem, even sent me a gift...and kept their promise..

    You know we all have complications in business, the most important thing is to Fix the problem after it occurs.

    Tightboards.com took care of my first order and even gave me 15% off my next. Then I ordered other items and they told me it was no longer in stock. I called for 2 weeks and they finally answered. I was told that they were going to email me a $70 reimbursment credit code but haven't yet. And it's been 2 months and still nothing. I've been trying to contact them but there is never a response. Yes they have killer deals but they can do better as far as service goes.

    Dear Boardparadise/tightboards.com customer,
    Over the previous sixth months our on-line store underwent an unexpected amount of growth. In short, we were not prepared to handle this increase in orders and at the same time maintain the quality level of customer service our company was founded on. We have taken direct action to resolve these issues.
    However, it has been brought to our attention that your experience shopping with tightboards.com was less than satisfactory. As snowboarders and skaters ourselves, that’s not the type of customer service we want to provide. You should be able to expect the best products and service from us at all times.
    If you have had a bad experience shopping with us and still have unresolved issues to date, please contact us: 1.888.760.4236, click on the “live chat” icon on tightboards.com, e-mail [email protected], or contact me directly through [email protected]

    I ordered 2 pairs of snowboarding socks on 11/20/2008 for my boyfriends Christmas present. I received an e-mail on 12/1/08 saying that 1 of the pairs had been shipped and one hadn't but they would give me store credit for it. I don't want store credit!! I would never order from them again. Why did it take 10 days to get the order shipped anyhow. Any other place has it shipping the next day. Also how about refunding me for the shipping and handling I was charged for that other pair of socks. No one will return my call and you can never get ahold of anyone.

Tightboards.com — order not received

Placed order on Dec. 1. They charged my credit card immediately but still one month later have not received a...

Tightboards.comProduct never shipped!

The company cashed my credit card payment immediately, before leaving me stranded without my order for over 3 1/2 weeks now. Customer service are unavailable by phone lines (constantly engaged or automated response) online assistant promised 48h shipping after 10 days wait before admitting 3 days later that 1 of the items was out of stock and that I should order something else (no refund!). 7 days later, no answer, no shipping and a customer service one has to waste 2 hours (literally) to reach. Very dodgy operation.

    I ordered a snowboard in September and still have not recieved it, my emails have mostly been ignored by the customer service and when I did get a response they thought I'd ordered a beanie!? Still trying to get something sorted. They don't seem very clued up and I wouldn't use them again.

    Beware!!
    My son ordered a snowboard online and was told it would be shipped out that afternoon. Every time he called and spoke to someone they said it was shipped. A week later when he said he was told he would have it by now they admitted they didn't have the one he ordered and would refund his money. It has been two weeks and they still have not refunded him. After 5 calls to dead ended phone messages and leaving unreturned messages I finally got a sharp tongued girl who informed me that she legally had 30 days before needing to provide me the refund. She suggested that my son should have read the "fine print".

    I luckily never waited, but wish I had never received the board. I ordered a 153, and received a 155. I literally slid the board out of the box, saw 155 and slid right back in. Now today 03/05 I get a phone call saying the board was "damaged" large scratches on the bottom and the tip, whick makes the board unable to ride (nice try, all of us who board know, scratches make no differece), according to them. I told them the board never hit the ground or was possibly damaged by UPS. Box was in perfect condition, according to them (I will never know). My favorite part of the conversation was when she said, "our warehouse staff checks all details of the boards" I tell her that argument has no validity, if they payed so much attention to 'detail' why was the wrong size board shipped (silence and she put me on hold to talk to her manager, looks like her story plot ran out). I never received the plastic slip that comes with all board purchases and they accused me of not returning that as well, cant return something you never get. Needless to say, I spoke with them this afternoon at 1p and the woman said they will call back in an hour, well it's 5:30, I have called and to no prevail, lines are busy, something all of you had dealt with,this place is dicey. Unless your a glutton for pain, don't bother with this place.

    I wish I found this complaint board before the order was placed.

    Better Business Bureau here I come.

    i agree with what everyone else is saying. they show stuff online to buy then when you buy it they charge your card when the item is not even instock. then they don't even call or email to tell you its out of stock you have to be a mind reader i guess. then after all that they tell you money cant go back on your card for 30 days. if its out of stock WHAT R THEY CHARGING ME FOR? i have been snowboarding and buying gear for 10 years and never have dealt with a company like this. DON'T BUY FROM TIGHT BOARDS OR ANY OF THEIR OTHER 7 WEBSITES!!
