Impact vests

Buy Kitesurf impact vest

Are you looking for good protection while kitesurfing? Then you have probably already come across the kitesurf impact vests together with a kitesurf helmet. An impact vest is almost impossible to miss if you are looking for good protection for your ribs. A kite impact vest absorbs hard blows. This can be used when practicing your first jumps or freestyle tricks. However, do not forget that the jumps you will make will go higher and higher so the crashes can get harder. Therefore, use a kitesurf impact vest to protect your ribs from an accident. 

Design of a kitesurf impact vest

Kitesurf impact vests, as the name suggests, are designed to cushion the blows. An impact vest provides proper kite protection in crashes and can really make the difference between broken ribs or not. For efficient use it is important that the impact vest fits well. Since a kite trapeze is indispensable during kite surfing, the design of the impact vest takes into account the position of the protection pads. The protection is only located at the top of the ribs, so the ribs are optimally protected. Impact vests for kite surfing have no padding at the bottom, leaving room for your kite trapeze.

Fit of kite surf impact vest

Make sure a kite impact vest fits snugly, similar to a wetsuit. If a kite impact vest fits well, it will not slide up continuously after a fall. This can be checked by pulling the kitesurf impact vest upwards at the shoulders above the organs. When this is the case you will notice that while kiting the impact vest is continuously in the way. Because of this you will not wear it, which is a shame! 

The impact vests are available with and without a zipper. The advantage of the zipper is that it's easier to put on. A disadvantage is that the padding cannot offer protection everywhere. The zipper is in the way.

Kite surfing flotation vests

A kite impact vest does not provide as much buoyancy as a life jacket, but it is similar to, say, your wetsuit. The wetsuit you wear provides some buoyancy and a kitesurf impact vest will provide that same buoyancy. If you are looking for extra buoyancy, then it is also possible to choose a flotation vest. Float vests are definitely different from impact vests. Float vests like you expect to stay afloat. Sometimes you are not aware of certain currents, coldness or an accident. Therefore, while kiting, use a flotation vest to keep yourself above water. When choosing the right flotation vest, therefore, choose one that fits well. It is not the intention that a flotation jacket shoots above your head if you fall.

NOTE: A flotation jacket is different from a life jacket. A life jacket is equipped with a like to keep your head above water at all times. 

If there are any doubts about the size, it is always possible to try it on at Telstar Surf.
