Impact vests

Buying guide for impact vests

Impact vests are made to protect wind- and kitesurfers from hard falls on the water. With the use of an impact vest, injuries are limited. Incidentally, the impact vests have little to no float, unlike the floating vests.

What to look for when purchasing an impact vest

Gender: There are impact vests for men and women, so be careful not to buy an impact vest of the opposite sex! This cannot feel comfortable, so your performance on the water will also be less.

Type: There are two types of impact vests, some impact vests are longer, making it more difficult to use your trapeze optimally. An advantage of the longer impact vests is that they offer more protection over your entire torso. There are also shorter impact vests where the trapeze use is easier. A disadvantage of these impact vests is that they do not offer protection over your entire torso.

Size: The size of an impact vest can greatly influence your performance. To choose the right size you can visit the Telstar Surf shop or try the jackets yourself.
