First Waves Partners With G-FORM

First Waves is all about adventure.  Learning to perform outside your comfort zone is what enables participants to grow, and inspire others.  But like any proper adventure, there are obstacles to overcome.  For First Waves, one of these obstacles are the rocks that surround the waves and rapids we surf and document.  To stay protected, First Waves is proud to announce its latest partner, G-Form Protection.

G-form’s revolutionary protection is ideal for the rigorous demands of whitewater paddleboarding and adventure filmmaking.  “Our innovative reactive protection technology turns impact into a flexible armor, dissipating nearly all of the energy from the blow.  After impact, it instantaneously returns to its lightweight and flexible state,” explains G-form.

First Waves founder and whitewater athlete, Ian Smith, explains, “After my helmet and life-jacket, the G-Form Knee-Shin combo is the most vital piece of protection I wear.”  First Waves’ latest project, “River of Change,” an adventure filmmaking and conservation project focusing on Johnstown, Pennsylvania begins this Saturday.
