Restube: Your Number 1 Life Saver On The Water!

Buoyancy Aid – Floating Device on Water

As I have often said in reviews, safety is way more important than anything when you’re going out on the water.

The buoyancy aid Restube is an accessory that you can clip on your swimming outfit and is super easy and light to carry along with you.

Just pull the cord and the Restube will inflate itself in an instant, making sure you will always come to surface and can rely on this device to stay above water.

Paddle Board Safety with Restube

Paddle board safety might not be the first thing on every paddler’s mind. People often think: “What could happen when I’m quietly paddling around on the water?

But if you lose balance because of a wave or a scare by for instance a bird flying by closely (they freak me out!), you can unexpectedly fall into the water and be so disoriented you cannot differ up and down.

If you get stuck in a strong stream, that are way stronger if you get deeper underwater, it is harder to get back up. The Restube is ideal in this situation and is a true lifesaver.

This handy device is not only great for Stand Up Paddle Boarding, but also for swimming, triathlon, surfing, kitesurfing, basically every sport that has do with water!

There are some different types of Restube, depending on the sport you practice. Swimmers and runners get more compact ones because they need the extra aerodynamics for speed, while rougher sports like kite surfing get an extra safety splint so the Restube will not open by accident while practicing the sport.
