Bouyancy Aids & Personal Floatation Devices (PFDs)

Buoyancy aids come in a variety of sizes and are shaped to fit your body and to allow good freedom of movement; they are recommended for us with inflatable kayaks or most other watersports. Don't take uneccessary risks, be safe on the water.

Unlike a lifejacket, a buoyancy aid is designed to keep the user afloat but be less restrictive in its design, allowing the user to swim more easily and have greater freedom of movement when out of the water. We recommend the use of buoyancy aid or lifejacket with all watercraft regardless of the conditions or the strength of the swimmer.
