The SafeGrom Story
Our Journey begins with a Dad, Andeaux, and his passion for sharing the stoke with his young son and the The Wounded Warriors program. While teachers, Vets and groms at Churchs' at Camp Pendleton, something occurred to him. He and other instructors were having a hard time pulling students onto the front of the surfboards.
Whether the person was bareback, wearing a rashguard or even a life jacket, there is always the "Slippery Fish" issue. To safely get someone out of the water, you had to grab and pull with enough force that could dislocate a shoulder or cause serious injury.
Andeaux then asked the question: "If a life jacket is supposed to keep a kid's head above water, why isn't there a handle on the lifejacket to get them out of the water?"
This was the birth of the SafeGrom StokeVest.
