Add impact protection, warmth, and peace of mind with the Ride Engine Defender HF Impact Vest!  Windsurfing, Foiling, Wing Surfing, Kite Surfing etc all have the potential for bashing up your ribs or spearing you with a foil wing.  Yikes!  So add some protection from those unintended crashes with the Defender HF!

This is NOT a Coast Guard Approved Flotation Device.

More Info:

Riding a hydrofoil on any type of surf craft in any condition can go sideways quickly, making an impact vest mandatory equipment for most foilers. The Defender HF Impact Vest has been designed to give you gladiator-level protection from a potentially injurious board or foil strike to the torso. The padding on the Defender HF Impact Vest is logically located to allow for unobtrusive paddling and smooth integration under a kite or windsurf harness. Strategically placed internal impact-shell technology throughout the Defender HF Impact Vest shield your upper body from wayward foil points, board noses and other scar-producing dangers so you can ride another day.

Features

  • Optimized design and fit for all styles of foiling: kite, surf, windsurf and wing
  • Internal impact-shell technology located in high-risk areas
  • YKK heavy-duty front zip

        Awesome shop! Very friendly, quick response time and very helpful in making all of my selections. Goes above and beyond offering tips on the item purchased. If they don't have it he will find it. Always a great attitude that makes me more stoked to get in the water. I highly recommend this shop!

        I’ve placed 5 or 6 orders with Andy and had a great experience every time. Super helpful, responsive and knowledgeable. He takes the time to help his customers. I’ve ordered from most of the main windsurfing shops in the US at various times over the years and Wind-NC has been a step above.
