Impact Vests

Impact vests are like giant, inflatable chest shields for water sports enthusiasts. They're designed to protect your upper body from the impact of crashing into the water or getting smacked by your kite or wingboard.

In the world of kitesurfing and wing boarding, an impact vest is pretty much a necessity if you want to avoid looking like a human pancake after a particularly gnarly wipeout. They are made of tough, durable materials that can withstand all kinds of abuse, so you can focus on getting stoked instead of worrying about your safety.

Three Tiers of Impact Vests for Water Sports

Ok, water warriors, let’s break down the different types of Impact vests, also known as personal flotation devices or PFD. are designed to provide extra protection and support for water sports enthusiasts. They're made with high-quality materials and construction designed to keep you safe and comfortable on the water. 

GOOD

The "Bargain Bin" vest is the low-end option for people who just want the bare minimum in terms of protection. It's made of thin, flimsy materials and offers minimal padding, but hey, at least it's cheap, right? Best for: People who are on a tight budget and don't mind looking like a human punching bag.

BETTER 

The "All-Purpose" vest is the jack-of-all-trades option for people who want a little bit of everything. It's usually thicker and offers a bit more padding than the Bargain Bin vest, but it's still not high-end. Best for: People who like to dabble in various water sports and want a vest that can handle everything.

BEST

The "Specialized" vest: This is the high-end option for people who are serious about their sport and want the best protection possible. It's usually made of super-tough materials and has lots of padding and support in all the right places. Best for: Kiteboarders, wingboarders, and windsurfers who are pushing their limits and need a vest that can keep up.

Windance Impact Vests for Kitesurfing and Impact Vests for Wingboarding

High-quality impact vests are designed to work in harmony with your body and the elements. They're made to fit properly and provide the necessary support and protection. On the other hand, low-quality vests are often poorly designed and made with cheaper materials that don't hold up to the rigors of kitesurfing and wing foiling sport. You’ll find a huge selection of vests ranging from budget-friendly to specialized performance.
