Safe and Surf / Surf

Safe and Surf
Safe and Surf

Surfing, windsurfing, kitesurfing etc. are all extreme sports, so safety is an important factor. With the surfing helper water sports become safer for everyone. While on the water, it's difficult to guess the distance to the shore, however this distance is something very important to keep in sight! If your surf gear breaks in open sea, it's difficult to get back and lifesavers have to do their job. The surfing helper gives you a signal when surfing out too far, but it can also send out signals to lifesavers when the surfer is in need for help.
