The average American sits in front of a computer screen 8-10 hours a day for work. To help reduce the strain this can cause the back and neck area, most people invest in an ergonomic chair or workstation to relieve muscle tension and improve posture. This is a popular trend, especially for people who have recently set up home offices. But for fishermen, bringing this same level of ergonomic comfort to your boat seats can be a real game changer.
When your boat takes on rougher waves, your knees, back, and neck absorb the brunt of the shocks. No matter your age or how long you spend on the water, this can lead to soreness, fatigue, and muscle strains. And the more hits you take on, the more you may find yourself turning back to shore early.
If you’re noticing that a couple of hours on the lake is followed by a full week of joint pain and backache, it might be time to upgrade to boat seats that provide the same level of ergonomic comfort and are paired with an advantaged shock-absorbing suspension.
Benefits of Shock-Absorbing Boat Seats
- Takes the Focus Off Your Back: Whether you’re spooling a spinning reel or hauling in your latest prized catch, having a shock-absorbing boat seat means you don’t feel the jerks or jolts from hitting the water. Instead, you float on top of them.
- Supports Your Comfort Level: Just as ergonomic chairs and desks work to compliment the natural curvature of your spine, boat suspension systems, like Smooth Moves Seats, are easy to adjust to accommodate your height and weight (max of 350 lbs).
- Lessens the Impact: Heading toward rougher waves can cause your body to tense up and brace for impact, but with Smooth Moves Seats, you cut through water, allowing your body to relax and absorb less hits in between each wave.
At Smooth Moves Seats, our goal is to keep you comfortable, not just when you’re out on the water but also during the days ahead. We provide two affordable options—both of which are effective at combating discomfort: The Air and Ultra Suspension Boat Seats.
The Ultra is a hydraulic suspension boat system that can be adjusted for a range of passenger weights between 100 and 300 pounds. It includes powder-coated steel and zinc-coated springs, so it’s wear-resistant from salt water. Learn more!
Air Boat Seat Suspension System
This more advanced option features a built-in air compressor that can be turned on with a quick push of a button. Air can be added by simply plugging the system into a 12-volt outlet or by hardwiring it to your boat’s electrical system. Learn more!
Both suspension systems fit right under your boat seats (not included). They are easy to install, and designed to accommodate most fishing and pontoon boots that feature pedestal-style seating configurations.
