Death by drowning is the leading cause of death for children ages 2-5. This is an unacceptable truth. You can keep kids safe on land, but kids were meant to be playing, swimming and splashing at beaches, lakes, rivers and pools. The StokeVest was created to maximize stoke, style and safety for children and adults.
What is the StokeVest?
The StokeVest is purposefully designed with four strategically placed harnesses with one on the collar, two on the waist and the StokeGrip harness on the back. The StokeVest is USPTO patented and the safest life jacket on the market today for surfing, SUPing, boating or jet skiing.
The SafeGrom Difference
The StokeVest was created for adults to secure children in the water without possibly harming them in the process. With a traditional life jacket there's no way to secure a child without risking dislocation of a limb. With the StokeVest your child is always in the best hands - yours.
Our Journey begins with a Dad, Andeaux, and his passion for sharing the stoke with his young son and the The Wounded Warriors program. While teachers, Vets and groms at Churchs' at Camp Pendleton, something occurred to him. He and other instructors were having a hard time pulling students onto the front of the surfboards.
Whether the person was bareback, wearing a rashguard or even a life jacket, there is always the "Slippery Fish" issue. To safely get someone out of the water, you had to grab and pull with enough force that could dislocate a shoulder or cause serious injury.
Andeaux then asked the question: If the life jacket is supposed to keep a kid's head above water, why isn't there a handle on the lifejacket to get them out of the water? This was the birth of the SafeGrom StokeVest.
Andeaux made some drawings and took them to a seamstress and after a few initial prototypes he was ready to try out the new idea with his son.
With the prototype, Andeaux and his grom paddled out into some small, fun Summer waves. It wasn't long before a small set rolled through and they turned around to paddle into one. They drop in, Pop reaches forward, pulls up Grommy to his feet with the greatest of ease and both are flying down the green face!! The stoke was intense and immediate. After a few sessions, folks began asking where they could get their own StokeVests for their children. It was then that Andeaux knew that he was onto something and SafeGrom was birthed.
