repost: the life jacket problem
Alright. I did post this on the windsurfing school forum too but I need responses fast so I decided to post twice.
My mom said that she wants me to get a life jecket or other boyancy device for sailing in the summer when I don't have a wetsuit to give me the boyancy.
I need suggestions on what to get. Do I get an impact vest that works with a waist harness? Do I get a specialized life jacket designed for windsurfing? Or do I just do what I normally do and go out with my harness and rashgaurd + shorts and try and convince her I won't fall or hurt myself?
She is worried about me going unconscious and drowning
Thanks for the help. If anyone has any suggestions let me know. If you have any experience with products also let me know. I weigh around 150 lbs and am 6 foot.
