Being out in choppy conditions can be uncomfortable; they can injure your knees and back. But now that Sea Shocks is available, that achy-muscle feeling you sometimes get after a day on the water might be a thing of the past.

Sea Shocks are floor mats made of Skydex, reportedly “the world’s most advanced shock-absorbing material.” It’s the same cushioning used in Nike sneakers, in football and Army helmets, and, most recently, on the floor of Zodiac’s military-style CZ7 (a boat used by Navy SEALs). Skydex Sea Shocks reportedly absorb 75 percent more shock than other competing products, according to its manufacturer.

Sea Shocks measure 16"x32" and are UV- and corrosion-resistant. They come with a 30-day satisfaction guarantee. Available directly from the company, they sell for $149.

Sea Shocks ( (866) 732-7462. www.seashocks.com.
