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


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.
