FAQ

Send us your questions to info@yooowe.com
and we'll put some of the best ones here.

Who can join?

You. Yes, you. We mean, everyone. As long as you have a positive and friendly attitude, have some ski, a surfboard or other gear you want to share, or if you're looking for something to rent and want to find positive and friendly locals. It's all good by us. Mainly, we have private guys and girls in here but some schools wanted to jump on board and get some great deals going for rental directly from them - so, being a good all-welcoming bunch we said "yes".

What if there is no gear in the area I want to rent?

Well, have you looked in the neighbouring area or possibly your own area if you're going somewhere else but can bring the gear? Still no luck? Drop us a line and we'll do some search for you, get in touch with local peeps and work our charm the best we can

Does it cost anything?

Nada. It doesn't cost anything to register and list gear. However, our gorgeous sporty bodies require sustenance every now and then, so to make that possible we take 12% of every transaction in fee and Stripe (the payment provider) takes 3% for processing the payment. That should help so we'll stay energised enough to keep the community running.

How do I pick up and drop off gear?

Talk it out with the person you're renting the gear from. It's really up to you two to decide and organize the best option for pick up and delivery. Perhaps, you're even gonna be in luck and the lister is gonna give you a ride to the best spot. Who knows? Anything great can happen. Perhaps, you'll even get to pick up the gear from the great location like the local surf shop. And hey, if you know a great local shop that rents the gear out and you think it should be in our books - just drop us a line using the Contact page

What if my gear gets damaged, breaks or stolen?

Ouch! Right now, the arrangement works like your typical rental: you break it, you pay for it. But you also have the opportunity to ask for a security deposit when editing your listing. If you have no way of getting your gear back (or getting the cash to fix it from the renter) we have some limited guarantee arrangements: USD1000 with the first USD200 being excess/deductible/self risk subject to requirements. You can find more details & limitations on the T&Cs page under point 1.4.

What are events?

Events are everything from competitions of different forms to local meetups. Whether it be SUP tours or film screenings, we are working towards gathering all the events worldwide within this community so everyone that has passion for either mountains, water or street, has a chance to experience these events and link up with other people with the same passion.

How do events work?

It’s pretty simple actually, if you’re an event organizer then you can list your event on YoooWe and use the already existing payment system and keep track of your attendees or if you’re just one amazing dude or dudette that wants to spread the word out about an event that is about to go down, you have the chance to use YoooWe to do that and thus being granted legendary level in all our hearts for spreading the word about all the cool stuff going on in the world.
