Advantages of Restube: barely noticeable resistance guaranteed buoyancy allows breaks for cramps and other ailments in case of emergency, excellent visibility for water rescue will be provided free of charge by the organizer at each event ATTENTION: all swimmers of the OSV Pro Wave swim according to FINA regulations without Restube buoy. For all other participants swimming with Restube buoy is obligatory
