Beat the end-of-summer chill with riding gear designed to keep you warm from Sea-Doo

Summer is not over yet! The weather is starting to get a bit cooler in many of our northernmost cities but it’s not over yet! Now is the time to extend your summer and spend as much time as you can on the water. To help you keep warm during these cooler weeks, we’ve got sportswear and technical gear designed to help you beat the end-of-summer chill!

Designed to fit over your PFD (or wear as a traditional jacket), this jacket will keep you warm and ward off the cool wind as you glide across the water. The jacket has a slit at the back waist so that it is comfortable, and not binding, when riding your Sea-Doo watercraft. It zips closed and includes a lined hood to keep your ears warm.

They are made of 3/2 mm neoprene and have velcro closures so they are easy to get in and out of. To compliment the full suit you will want to also purchase a Deluxe Jacket (men and ladies). These are lightweight (1 mm neoprene) and can be worn with the Deluxe Wetsuit or separately with neoprene shorts for days that are not cool enough for a full suit. These jackets zip closed and are comfortable, functional and provide that added layer when riding in cooler weather.

 

In cool weather the first thing that the air hits are your hands! Holding down the throttle or brake with cold fingers can be a attitude full finger gloveschallenge! Our full-finger Attitude or Vehicle gloves are comfortable, provide coverage from the cool air and include rubberized Pro-Grip on the thumb and palm to ensure a solid grip on the throttle or the brake! The gloves are specifically manufactured to allow Vehicle glovesoperation of your smart device (phone or other touch screen gadget) while they are on your hands. No need to remove, just touch and go. These are adjustable and can help ensure that you are warm head to toe.

After a full day on the water slipping into a warm, soft chill hoodysweatshirt is the perfect way to end the day. Our Chill Hoody is comfortable and even includes a sleeve cuff with a hole for your hand to ensure no wind blows up inside the jacket.

family fun for blog

Summer is the perfect time for high quality family fun and spending the summer on the water is something that everyone from the kids to the grandparents enjoy!

Labor Day is just around the corner and this marks the end of the summer for most locations in North America. Once Labor Day rolls around most of us are getting the kids ready to go back to school, starting to think about warmer clothes and get back into the groove of school. The next big break will be over Thanksgiving and most Sea-Doo watercraft owners will have finished winterizing their beloved Sea-Doo and plan to spend this holiday with family and friends enjoying the cool weather and eating (of course).

Not so fast, we’ve still got a few weeks left to enjoy the Sea-Doo! We asked our Facebook fans where they’ve been spending time on their Sea-Doo watercraft… use this as inspiration for YOUR end-of-summer get away!

With the second half of the watercraft racing season upon us Sea-Doo racers continue to collect championships in Europe and top X-TEAM riders are in the hunt for US National Championships.

JAMES BUSHELL - EUROPEAN PRO STOCK CHAMPION ON HIS SEA-DOO RXP-X

JAMES BUSHELL – EUROPEAN PRO STOCK CHAMPION

James Bushell has added another Pro Stock European championship to his resume aboard his 158Performance backed Sea-Doo RXP-X and is targeted to win the UK Championship in the Superstock 1000 class on the new Sea-Doo Spark and PRO GP classes on his Open class RXP-X. Bushell is proving his Sea-Doo RXP-X is still the watercraft to beat with solid wins amongst strong opposition all in the effort to prepare to defend his three year string of winning double world championships at the IJSBA World Finals, taking place in early October in Lake Havasu City, Arizona.

On the Hydroturf US National Tour, both Sea-Doo X-TEAM riders Erminio Iantosca and defending PRO OPEN world champion Jared Moore from South Africa are in the hunt for the PRO OPEN US National Championship with Aero Aswar. Iantosca has been busy preparing for the last two rounds which begin this weekend in Lake Hartwell, Georgia followed by the Governor’s Cup final in Charleston, West Virginia the following weekend, by stepping up his practice sessions on his RIVA supported Sea-Doo RXP-X and riding for the upcoming 2015 Sea-Doo catalogs and videos. Moore is balancing time between South Africa and the Kommander Industries shop in Arizona as he attempts to find consistency in his finishes to claim another championship aboard his Sea-Doo RXP-X.

Following the conclusion of the US National Tour, the forth round of the AQUAX US tour will take place in the surf of Cocoa Beach, Florida where the newest watercraft racing series is attracting more and more new and old riders alike. 2013 Cocoa Beach 300 class winner Cody Hawkins will be back in action to defend his title aboard his Sea-Doo RXP-X. In the 250 class Sea-Doo X-TEAM rider Eric Lagopolous will look to continue to build on his points lead after claiming eight of the past nine possible moto wins aboard his Sea-Doo GTR 215.

The Sea-Doo #SPARKSOMEFUN Test Ride Tour introduced the Sea-Doo life to nearly 3000 new boaters.

DSC00783The #SPARKSOMEFUN Test Ride Tour that played an integral part in the historic launch of the Sea-Doo Spark watercraft is now complete. After 33 weekend events across North America the excitement for the new Sea-Doo Spark is peaking as the heart of summer has arrived. The #SPARKSOMEFUN events provided nearly 3000 watersports fans the first hand experience of test riding a new Sea-Doo watercraft to see what model best fits their needs.

Quiet Waters Park – Pompano Beach, Florida

Three Sea-Doo event teams produced weekend events at popular boating areas, working with local BRP dealers to build an experience that gave consumers a taste of what the watercraft lifestyle is all about. Guests were treated to festive events with expert instruction from passionate and knowledgeable Sea-Doo watercraft specialist. The Sea-Doo staff supplied all the riding gear to ensure guests were safe and comfortable during their time on the water. The #SPARKSOMEFUN course was designed with inspiration from video games with large oversized inflatables to build a course that was fun and easy to follow.

Folsom Lake – Sacramento, California

The Sea-Doo Test Ride Tour began in April in South Florida on the heels of the Miami #SPARKSOMEFUN event with deadmau5 and David Garibaldi. That momentum carried through to the Miami Test Ride event, taking place at historic Miami Marine Stadium. Following successful events in Pompano Beach and Tampa, the Miami event proved to be the season’s most popular in terms of participation with over 240 guests test riding the new Sea-Doo Spark. As Spring weather made its way north, the tour teams followed with events in Texas and Arizona before heading up the east and west coasts and into the great lakes regions.

The event venues varied from small private lakes, to large lakes, to rivers and bays. No matter the venue the goal was the same and that was to give guests a full taste of the fun they can have by owning and riding a Sea-Doo watercraft. BRP believes the best manner to pick the right watercraft for your needs is to, “try before you buy.” With the #SPARKSOMEFUN tour visiting new markets such as San Francisco, Seattle, and Quebec City to name a few, the sport of watercraft riding was exposed to an entirely new generation of boaters.
