PFDs - A necessity for any water sport. We carry Coast Guard approved person flotation devices (PFDs, life vests) for men, women, and children. Manufactured by Extra Sport, Kokatat, Palm and MTI, one is certain to fit your body and your sporting activities. New, Coast Guard approved, inflatable PFDs are ideal for hot weather and anyone who hates to wear a bulky life vest.
