The Rib Rocket is designed in California and has strategically placed PVC foam padding sewn into areas where the ribs come in contact with the board during prone paddling. The padding is just enough to soften the impact where cartilage bone meets board and glass. We found that more surfers have been suffering rib pain because of the new EPS epoxy boards that are much harder than traditional fiberglass resins. Rib Rocket addresses these problems and offers a comfortable solution for all that suffer from rib pain.
The Rib Rocket features a 2mm neoprene front panel with sewn-in PVC padding for comfort and stability and a Lycra back for a fine fit and cooler material for warmer climates. Also, a board short loop connects the garment to your boardshorts to prevent ride up and a side draw string to snug the garment around the waist. Additionally, it provides 50+ U.V. protection from the sun.
