Original Watermen supplies any and all of your lifeguard needs

At Original Watermen, our lifeguard bathing suits are satisfaction guaranteed. Made by lifeguards, for lifeguards, our suits are tested and proven to be the most durable in the industry. When California lifeguards tell us the most important things they look for with their suits, we make it. Lifeguard bathing suits have remained our specialty since the '70s, and we continue to evolve, keeping Original Watermen at the forefront of the industry. While some providers haven't changed their style or updated their fabrics in over a decade, Original Watermen continuously improves each and every design to make sure our agencies are satisfied and receive the most up-to-date comfort. 
Our most popular lifeguard bathing suits range from our classic Pro Lifeguard Boardshort to our Watermen Stretch board short - a four-way stretch board short, worn by thousands of lifeguards nationwide. Becoming just as popular, our Retro Boardshort has a 5-inch inseam, is made with 100% Microfiber Polyester, and is made in several bright and industry-related colors. Also, chosen each year for California State Lifeguard Training, our Microshield Pocket Short is regulation at most beaches nationwide. Quick drying and supportive, our lifeguard bathing suits for women come in one- and two-piece designs. For women, Original Watermen also has a line of run-swim-run shorts for those very active beach days. Our women's shorts can be worn solo, but also can be used as a cover-up. Also, instead of nylon, shorts such as our Women's Pro Boardshort are sanded with polyester microfiber fabric - making it withstand sun and chlorine five times longer than competitor's shorts. 

Lifeguard bathing suits have to be able to withstand the most strenuous circumstances. When your job revolves around the ocean, chlorine and/or sun 14 hours a day, you need to know that your suit isn't going to fail you. That's why at Original Watermen, our lifeguard bathing suites are made with comfort in mind, while also maintaining the durability to not let you, your agency or the public down. Whether it's lifeguard bathing suits, rash guards, tees, hats, hoodies or equipment, Original Watermen supplies over 1,900 lifeguard agencies around the globe.

Watermen walk the line between bravery and fear

At Original Watermen, our selection of tees, boardshorts, swimsuits, accessories and apparel is tested and proven to be just as resilient as the watermen who wear them. We recognize that it takes much more than the average person testing the waters to earn the name waterman. A lifetime spent in and around the water isn’t enough. Watermen are more than comfortable in the ocean; they focus on the lifestyle of the trade, breathing and living all things water.

Watermen inspire – they face their fears, they challenge themselves constantly, never resting on their laurels. It’s not about showing up at the beach with you board and “maybe” going for it. Finding excitement in a new challenge, watermen walk the line between bravery and fear, gaining experiences whether good or bad, to learn from and continue on. Watermen can be healed by nowhere else but the ocean.  Think about how many of the world’s most popular – and excitingly risky – surf breaks never would have been discovered if the brave individuals who discovered them would have thought they were too dangerous? If Waikiki surfers never would have stood on their long boards, using outrigger paddles to paddle their way to new, distant reef breaks? A new sport all together wouldn’t have been born. Watermen see a new challenge in the water and go for it –inventing new sports along the way. Imagine how many action sports in general the world would be missing out on, if some brave, thrill seeking watermen didn’t continue striving to evolve their equipment? Think of the underwater depths that would be left undiscovered if daring divers didn’t thrive to go deeper?

For reasons such as these, true watermen are a rare breed to come by. But if and when you do see one, you will know, recognizing the pride that comes with a lifetime spent earning their salt.

To shop for all things watermen, visit our Web site at Our watermen-inspired tees, boardshorts, trunks, jackets, suits and other apparel pay tribute to those who are more than the average swimmer or diver or surfer. People often ask us – what IS Original Watermen? What is Earn Your Salt?  Original Watermen strives to represent those who have that passion to push themselves to the limit each and every time they touch the water.
