Hi,

They guy who produces them is a friend of mine.

It is great little invention that gives you piece of mind when you are out in scary conditions.

I use mine when I got out in big waves, as it's always a possibility that you can get into trouble in big conditions.

I would think it could deploy by accident during wipe outs... then it would be in the way so I don't think it would be practical for windsurfing or kitesurfing. Snorkling yes.

I have used it lots, and so far it has never deployed by accident.

The Release tab is well secured and the trigger has a clip is strong enough to prevent accidental triggering.

I think its money well spend for the peace of mind that youll have a Toy to rest on while your shwimming back to shore. :wink:
