Sustaining participation in watersports with extended exposure to the elements can be a huge challenge for kids, parents, and coaches.
Vaikobi Founder and Father-of-two Patrick Langley, knows all about the necessary gear to guarantee the best day out on the water for young watersports lovers. “We’ve been through the sailing journey with our kids, and we know what they need. We’re passionate about covering all the comfortable essentials while providing good value for parents and teams” he said.
The debut of the junior sizes within the Vaikobi range satisfies this apparel gap in an affordable, one-stop package. It offers warm, highly mobile, and durable designs that work with all younger body frames during physical activity – without compromising breathability.
The Vaikobi youth Hydroflex top is made from a thick fleece to retain warmth and regulate body temperature for best performance. Complete with a hydrophobic coating and breathable mesh panels underneath the arms, this base layer will keep kids and teens warm for hours on end. The top has a super lightweight construction made from hollow-yarn fabric and is easy to put on and take off. The collection also includes the 1.5mm youth neoprene pants from the highly successful, best-selling Flexforce range. Unlike traditional wetsuits, our Flexforce technology dictates the right amount of stretch in critical areas for movability and easy exit and entry. They are reinforced with abrasion-resistant knees and seat panels that will endure significant friction without wear and tear.
Sun protection is also a huge factor to consider when purchasing watersports clothing for kids. The high necked UV certified rashie for youths provides maximum coverage. Its long sleeves and super soft, lightweight qualities make it hardly noticeable, even on the hottest summer day. Vaikobi’s new youth flat-brim snap back caps are also red hot out of the design lab, and are available in smaller head sizes (
