You know it, I know it, having the right gear can make all the difference between an average experience and an unforgettable ride.

It's often underestimated, the quality of the gear you choose. Sometimes things that look good on the shelf, don't work like you'd hoped. Other times, what works, is too restrictive on your movements.

Since the sport began there was a fine-line that had to be balanced upon. A Wakeboard Life Jacket's neoprene had to have to be protective & strong to ensure longevity, but maintain a level of flexibility for movement too. Enter Follow’s Duraprene neoprene – a game-changer in Neoprene material, offering unmatched durability and comfort and manoeuvrability. The decision to use Duraprene was made with the knowledge that among the essential equipment for any day is the Wakeboard Life Jacket, which provides you not only buoyancy and protection but also comfort and freedom of movement.

Whether you're sticking a ‘Mobe’ or simply cruising across the water, it moves with you, offering a level of comfort and flexibility that traditional neoprene vests can't match.
