The Lifeguard store of Watermen

Original Watermen’s lifeguard store is stocked with all the lifeguard gear your agency may need to fully outfit your rescue swimmers, seal team units or beach or pool lifeguards. Our lifeguard apparel is made by lifeguards, for lifeguards, so we know what kind of top-performance equipment is needed for resisting the training, exercise, and strenuous activity lifeguards do on a daily basis. Whether use revolves around salt water, sun or chlorine, our gear is satisfaction guaranteed.

Our lifeguard store and lifeguard lounge outfits over 1,900 agencies across the globe, ranging from ocean lifeguards, city pools, water park guards to military Special Forces. Our swimwear is also proven to be quick drying, so lifeguards can comfortably go from the water to the tower and dry quickly with no problem. In our lifeguard store, you will also find Jr. Guard swimsuits and other lifeguard equipment. The store carries a complete line of Jr. Guard swimwear, from swimsuits, trunks and Jr. Lifeguard rashguards to backpacks and Da Fins surf rescue fins.

While some lifeguard stores haven’t upgraded their lifeguard uniform or apparel design in over a decade, Original Watermen is constantly improving on a new and better fit that are comfortable 15 hours a day. In the lifeguard store you will find the most up-to-date cutting edge fabrics and styles to comfortably fit your lifeguard unit. The Watermen Stretch short is made of a new four-way super stretch fabric, making it the most popular boardshort in the industry. For female guards, we have both one- and two-piece swimsuit designs. The Elasta Girl Super Stretch Short is made with the same high-tech four-way super stretch poly microfiber as in our men’s line, and can be used both as a regular short and a cover up. Within the lifeguard store, we can embroider most swimwear with your agencies name and logo – give us a call for more information.

The lifeguard store also carries a huge selection of water and ocean inspired tees and cold weather clothes. We are continually striving to improve and provide the best quality, fit, funtion and comfort in all of our lifeguard products. Our lifeguard store carries a new Watermen Pant that is worn by guards across the country, and can be used for training and working out in colder weather.

The lifeguard store at Original Watermen also carries a full range of equipment, including Da Fin rescue fins, the best lifeguard and big wave rescue sleds, lifeguard tubes and cans, backboards, packs and whistles and most lifeguard First Aid supplies. The Orginal Watermen lifeguard store has proven time and time again to have the highest quality standards concerning swimwear and equipment in the industry. 

Original Watermen strives to have the most resilient lifeguard shorts in the industry

Since the late ‘70s, Original Watermen’s lifeguard shorts have been proven to be a favorite in the lifeguard industry. Starting with the company’s first lifeguard shorts being sold to local Carlsbad watermen, then to California State Parks and now outfitting over 1,900 organizations worldwide, this equipment has been put to the test.

Our popular line of Retro Lifeguard Shorts is our most streamlined cut. Lifeguards love the fit because of the super soft Cool plus Liner instead of a mesh liner, which prevents chaffing. And of course, they are popular because of their five inch inseam. For the more conservative, we also have longer lifeguard shorts and boardshorts that will keep your agency comfortable, quickly dry, and are stylish. The Watermen Pro Lifeguard Boardshort is preferred by more than 75,000 lifeguards around the world.

Not to leave our waterwomen out, our line of women’s lifeguard shorts are just as elite. Our just-as-popular Elasta Girl Super Stretch Short is 100% poly microfiber and is a four-way Super Stretch short. The new stretch short fabric is the next wave of technology for lifeguard shorts and boardshorts alike, upgrading trends from previous nylon and microfiber materials. We also make women’s lifeguard shorts that are specifically made based on what California guards asked for – shorts that are quick drying, unbinding, and that can be worn as a cover short as well.

With Original Watermen’s apparel, you can rest easy that living in your watermen lifeguard shorts will be the most comfortable ones out there. Sure, our lifeguard shorts have cargo pockets designed to accommodate MTS and XTS series Motorola radios, but throw a cell phone in there instead and you have a pair of shorts so comfortable you can run all your errands in them too – and head straight to the beach or pool.

At Original Watermen, we strive to have the most resilient lifeguard shorts in the industry. When the trunks you wear are your everyday uniform, you need to know that you’re not going to lose them to – or in – the water. Other brands of shorts can lose their color or shape, among other boardshort fatalities that will make your lifeguards extremely uncomfortable. But when you are in the industry of saving lives, you know what other lifeguards are looking for and what they need to be comfortable in their lifeguard shorts throughout their 15-hour days.

Lifeguard clothing comes with new prints, styles, cuts and comfort

At Original Watermen, our lifeguard clothing is made to withstand the strenuous and enthralling conditions lifeguards and watermen face on an everyday basis. Seasoned watermen know the level of comfort that is needed for those laborious 15-hour days, and our lifeguard clothing is made by lifeguards who have spent a lifetime in the water patrolling, surfing, swimming, paddling – you name it. Original Watermen’s lifeguard clothing started in the late ‘70s with lifeguard boardshorts being sold to local lifeguards and watermen in Carlsbad, and quickly grew to suiting the State of California Lifeguards. Now, our lifeguard clothing line outfits over 1,900 lifeguard agencies with a full line of gear and equipment.  

Original Watermen’s lifeguard clothing ranges from swimsuits and boardshorts to cold weather clothes and tees. We strive to provide the best quality and comfort in our lifeguard swimsuits, and our clothing is no different. For those chilly morning dawn patrols, we have lifeguard clothing that will keep your team warm. Our Watermen Pant is worn by guards across the country, and can be used for training and working out in colder weather. Our most popular jacket in the watermen line is our Sherpa Fleece, which features our rad Original Watermen chest logo and has warm fleece throughout.

Our lifeguard clothing is specifically inspired by all things watermen, for watermen. It takes a lifetime to Earn Your Salt, and we strive to represent that theme in the artwork featured on our tees and hoodies. One of our classic tees featuring The Duke is an artistic testament to the legend who earned His Salt. And of course, in the spirit of Earning Your Salt, we must pay tribute to the God of the Sea himself, King Neptune, depicted on tees and hoodies. Our waterwomen are often drawn to our popular Mermaid tees – another legendary water mystery. Original Watermen’s lifeguard clothing aims to represent strength in both durability and artistically with our waterman themed prints.

Tees are 100% ring-spun cotton for high quality and durability, and are often times pre-shrunk to fit well – and also helps avoid size issues when shopping via our online store. We make sure our lifeguard clothing continuously sets the bar with new prints, styles, cuts and comfort. We are bringing back the retro shorts while printing new tees and hoodies on a regular basis. Having so many different options, your lifeguards will definitely find a suit and cut that fits their needs, while still patrolling in style.
