Floating and impact jackets Kitesurf

Floating jackets are meant to keep you above water. Sometimes you are not aware of certain currents, coldness or an accident. During the kite, therefore, use a floating vest to keep yourself above water. When you're looking for the right life jacket, a life jackets neets to fit well. It is not intended that a floating vest shoots above your head when you fall.

We have as well impact vests. An impact vest absorbs hard hits. This can be used when practicing for example your first jumps. An impact vest can be worn just for extra safety. Make sure that an impact vest fits well, similar to a wetsuit. If an impact vest fits well, it will not scroll up. This can be checked by fitting the impact vest and seeing if you can pull the vest above your ears. 

The kite impact vests are specially designed so that the impact will fit with a kitetrapeze. An impact vest does not provide as much as a lifejacket, but the floating it is comparable with your wetsuit. The wetsuit that you wear provides something of buoyancy and that is even more added thanks to the impact vest.
