History of the water ski flotation belt
The Water Ski belt was invented in the vintage days of waterskiing. Pro shops used this in the 50's and 60's because life vests were very bulky in those days. Nash improved on it since the 50s by making it with a better grade marine closed cell foam and a coating it with a better waterproof vinyl coating. It is still popular today for experienced water-skiers doing deep waters starts on a slalom waterski, and sometimes you will see advanced slalom skiers wearing a non-compliant USCGA wetsuit jacket along with this belt.
The waterski flotation belt is not used as much for waterskiing as it was in the 50s, but you will still see it being used by advanced waterskiers. Todays popular use of the ski belt include snorkeling, swimming lessons, water aerobics, ocean swimming, and swim training. The belt is soft, easy to clean, vinyl coated, adjustable, and fits wide range of body sizes. This is essential vacation gear for beginners snorkeling for the first time and want to snorkel face down in the water. This belt gives you a little bit of help staying afloat.
US Coast Guard Approved Ratings of Flotation Devices
It is essential that you know how to swim if you use this flotation belt. The water ski belt is NOT be legal to use in place of a life vest because it is NOT a USCGA approved Type 3 PFD because it does NOT provide full upper body flotation. It is common to combine this belt with a thin competition vest jacket, but even that combination is not USCGA compliant. Purchase of this product is an acknowledgement that the buyer accepts our life vest policies and our legal disclaimer regarding non-uscga vests, as summarized on the checkout process.
