We have just got a full range of the PaddleAir Padded Vests in store at Zak Surfboards. Fantastic products to allow you to get out in the water and stay out there longer with less pain and irritation. The two styles we have are the Ergo by PaddleAir & the Rib Rocket by PaddleAir ( SHOP NOW ).

The Ergo Padded Vests have an inflatable bladder that sits between your ribs and the board. You can adjust the amount of air inside to both customize the amount cushioning and the angle that you lie at. This put you not only in comfort but also at the perfect angle for paddling (significantly decreasing the load on you back). These are a great option for longer sessions – pumping days at home or on trips away, when extended time on your board leads to sore ribs.

If rib and chest pain alone is your concern then the Rib Rocket padded vest could be your answer. This vest has strategically placed PVC foam padding sewn into the chest. Protecting areas where your ribs come in contact with the board during prone paddling.

These padded vests are ergonomically designed for performance and built out of neoprene and lycra. They work well worn alone over trunks or over a wetsuit. Slip it over your wetsuit in winter or wear it by itself in summer.  If you’ve had issues with your ribs, pressure lumps, shoulder trouble or back pain then these are product worth checking out. Come in store and check them out or grab one of these padded vests from us online ( SHOP NOW )
