The HSA Rescue board collection is built around performance, integrity and durability. Our constant interaction with the various agencies we service, our own daily use of our products, as well as excellent rapport with PWC manufacturers allow us to be the trendsetters in the PWC industry. Today the most efficient method of rough water rescue is using the quick and agile PWC with an attached rescue board. The addition of a HSA rescue board transforms the PWC from a recreational toy to a work platform. HSA has come along way since our humble beginnings (the standard was the first product we made) and we are pleased to announce the first ever tow specific rescue board added to the HSA line. As technology is evolving HSA's passion and commitment to providing the best products and service is unparalleled. All of our boards come with interchangeable nosecones, rigging and handles. If a part wears or breaks, it can easily be replaced. These innovations make the HSA rescue boards the best on the market. Whatever your application, HSA has the knowledge, resources and skills to produce products specific to your needs.
Molded Nose Cone:
The molded nose cone covers all the abrasion areas of our rescue boards. This helps prolong the rescue board and PWC hull from excessive wear. Our nose cone is vacuum formed .350 gauge HMWPP plastic. The nose cone cover's all potential wear areas on our entire rescue board product line. As time and use wear the nose cone, we can simply replace it vs. having to replace the entire board. This is a theme we carry thru our rescue board product in ALL wear components area.
Our EVA decks are designed for traction and comfort Traction is achieved by belting the material and then we cut a long diamond pattern into the material. Comfort is achieved with the best durometer (hardness)/density for long periods of contact with knees & elbows.
Our rail material is 8lb. per cubic inch polypropylene material. Dense enough to be abrasion resistant, but soft enough to be forgiving with hard contact to the body. (Rails can be branded for private label projects.)
Center Attachment points:
With our extensive time on the water, we have come up with an attachment system that interfaces the PWC and rescue board. The center attachment point keeps the rescue board secure to the stern with a constant forward and downward tension. This rigging technique is essential to PWC's handling & reducing pre mature wear on both the nose cone and PWC
Our rescue board handles are High Pressure braided hose that we coat with EVA. The EVA grip pattern coupled with the durometer/hardness is the perfect blend of softness to slide over and rigidity for stability.
Side Attachment Points:
The purpose of the side stabilizer points is to damper the side to side movement of the rescue board. Heavy gauge marine bungee is engineered to bring the rescue board back to center after dynamic PWC direction changes. Much like steering damping on you’re automobile.
Deck Bungeee Cord:
For the surfer or adventurer carrying cargo, the deck bungee allows you to effortlessly pack gear on the rescue board for smooth or rough water travel to your favorite spot. Rescue agencies only get bungee on request. Although an asset for certain applications, bungee cord can be an entrapment hazard for other applications.
Handle Attachment Points:
Underneath the surface of our boards is a 3''x4'' deron rod stock which is fastened into the core with epoxy. From there the top skin and deck pad are fused to the core with heat welding. To secure our handles we use a 12''x2'' stainless steel screw/ washer combo. The fastening results we achieve have no sharp surfaces to come in contact with.
The Final Product:

This same attention to detail is evident in our entire product line as we spare no expense on materials we believe in. Our Rescue Boards have been tested & refined with the best products possible so that you too can be properly prepared. Safety First.
