DailyStoke Team

Anyone who loves water sports should have the coolest sailing and swimming gadgets whenever they go on an adventure. If you’re one of those people and you are looking for the best water sports equipment, we have the list for you!

Waterproof Rucksack 

A waterproof rucksack is something you shouldn’t miss when going out for any water sport. The AquaPac Wet and Dry Backpack is a great option because it comes in various sizes and is useful when you paddleboard. It’s very easy to carry to the beach or a campsite barbecue and has awesome versatility, which gives you value for money.

Chinook Waterproof Jacket

Only sports enthusiasts understand how crucial it is to have a multi-purpose single jacket. Chinook jackets (such as the Caterpillar Men’s Chinook Waterproof Jacket, Superdry Men’s Chinook Parka Jacket 0r Stormtech Mens Chinook Full Zip Anti-Pill Fleece Jacket) can serve various sporting needs, such as kayaking, canoeing, power boating dinghy sailing and paddleboarding.

It has a hood that can comfortably store a helmet, and the wrist/neck seals help prevent your layers beneath from getting wet. You can also open up these seals anytime you want to thwart overheating. If you’re a canoeist, sailor or a kayaker, this is the jacket for you as it has an adjustable hem that will prevent you from getting wet (especially when sitting in a kayak). It is also comfortable for long-distance touring on the water.

Personal Flotation Device (PFD)

A personal flotation device (PFD) is useful in various water-based activities like standup paddleboarding, canoe paddling, dinghy sailing and sea kayaking. The Peyto PFD is very effective and comfortable. Sometimes you need to warm your hands in cold weather, and the Perto personal flotation device gives you hand-warming pockets to keep you warm. There are two front pockets and a large back pocket that comes in handy.

The PFD (Nylon 200D), like the Palm Peyto Touring PFD Blue or NRS Chinook Mesh Back Fishing PFD Type III, has adjustable straps that help adapt to different body types.

Typhoon Tactical Folding Knives

It’s highly recommendable to have a knife with you in a number of water sports. Typhoon‘s folding knife is amazing as it has a blade that you can fold into the handle. It has a line cutter that works best as a sail cutter, and you can also use it on its opposite side.

The grip sitcks even when the knife gets wet, which is kind of a top selling point for a tool that’s likely to be surrounded by water most of the time.
