Gopro hero 5 water damage?

I recently took the gopro hero 5 black surfing and got some great footage however today i went to use it for downhill bike riding and found the lcd screen damaged. It has white lines running down it when viewing display and does what it wants without touching it. The display is not cracked or damaged so i assume water has got in but i know these are waterproof. Is there any help or support for this?
