Breakdown on Wake Vests and What Not
Here at Dj's Boardshop, we recommend that you look for the USCG approval number on any wake vest. Also remember to read the manufacturer's label and the "Think Safe" pamphlet that's attached to the vest. This may sound dramatic, but choosing the right vest can literally save your life. Below is a breakdown on the different wakeboarding vests and accessories we carry.
Competition/Freeride: thinner and lighter than USCGA vests.
Side Entry: available in USCGA and freeride models.
Molded: available in USCGA and freeride models.
Pullover: fits like a wetsuit top, not USCGA.
Riding Shirts: Worn under vest, not a PFD.
Rashguard: Worn under your vest or wetsuit, not a PDF.
