Riptide invites you to take a look at all our product lines at

Riptide manufactures our own line of BCD’S (made in the USA) and the Head Hammock. Riptide started back in the mid 1990’s and up to 2007 built and distributed our own line of BCD’s. Since then we have been behind the scenes working with many of the largest product manufacturers in our industry.

We thought the time was right to bring back an American made BCD, that is focused on the American style of diving. We also distribute and represent additional unique companies that have not been in the dive industry in the past.

Both Stingray sunglasses and K3 dry bags are well fitted to the dive market. Franko maps has been in the industry for many years and continues to be strong in the retail dive market. We invite you to look at all our lines and know you will find both value and quality in all our products.
