As these are not a stock product, we are not in a position to cancel this order. Please note, custom boards are shaped and finished by hand and estimating the lead time is not as accurate as ordering a stock surfboard. As cancellations are not allowed with these orders, we recommend you order well in advance if you need the board for a specific date. You can always speak with our team on LIVE CHAT to help you decide if a custom handmade surfboard is best for you, to meet any deadlines and requirements you have.
