The SmoothStar Thrusters are robust and should last a minimum of 4 years if maintained correctly. SmoothStar created some very useful videos on how to maintain and look after your SmoothStar. Many SmoothStar riders all over the world live near the ocean, surf skating around salty and rusty streets. If by chance riders have not maintained their SmoothStar and it is no longer proving the surf feeling, you may need a “SmoothStar Thruster Service.
Sometimes it is not possible to recondition the Thruster due to irreversible damage to the top and bottom plates. Irreversible damage occurs when people continue riding a damaged Thruster. If you would like to check whether your Thruster can be reconditioned by SmoothStar before purchasing and shipping, please contact us via support.
We will test your Thruster before sending it back to you. The Thruster Service comes with a 12 month guarantee. It will function very close if not better than a new SmoothStar Thruster.
