    Safety is a top priority for all water based activities. Your life jacket or impact vest is your most important safety device, and choosing the correct one is essential.

    Life Jackets: Keeping you afloat.

    Life jackets, also known as Personal Flotation Devices (PFDs), are designed to keep individuals buoyant in the water. Their primary purpose is to prevent drowning by providing flotation and ensuring that the wearer remains afloat. Life jackets are essential for boating activities, waterskiing, wakeboarding, and any water-based excursion where the risk of being immersed in water exists. It is crucial to choose a life jacket that fits properly and is SAMSA approved for maximum safety. Our life jacket range includes jackets specially designed for Kids and Infants, men and women.

    Our Life Jacket brands include H20 Dynamics and Burn Industries.

    Impact Vests: Protecting Your Upper Body

    Impact vests, also known as Competition (Comp) vests or Wake vests, serve a different purpose than life jackets. While they do provide some floatation, their primary function is to protect the upper body, specifically the ribs and chest. Impact vests are commonly used in high-energy watersports such as wakeboarding, waterskiing, tubing, kitesurfing, and foiling. These vests are designed to offer impact resistance and cushioning, minimizing the risk of injury during falls and collisions. Unlike bulkier life jackets, impact vests are lightweight, comfortable, and allow for freedom of movement, making them ideal for activities that require agility and maneuverability. A good fit is essential, so our range includes vests for all body shapes and sizes, including youths, kids, men and women.

    Our Impact vest brands include Follow wake, Mystic, Manera & Ride engine. Follow Wake is the premier Wake and Waterski brand which is exclusive to Watersports Warehouse.

    All watersports carry some inherent risks. Wearing appropriate safety gear is essential to ensure safety in the water.
