David Smith, president of SHOCKWAVE Marine Suspension Seats, has been designing and building performance-based land and sea-based vehicles and craft since 1965. SHOCKWAVE Seats has greatly benefited from this relationship.


The SHOCKWAVE Simulator fills the gap between low-cost recreational simulation and limited access, expensive, one-size-fits-all simulators. The SHOCKWAVE Simulator is not built for gaming, although it could be used for that. It is a tool designed for racers and race teams. SHOCKWAVE Simulators come standard with a Howe TA2 Camaro or Mustang chassis. They can also be configured for Late Models or customized to suit any type of racing cockpit.

SHOCKWAVE has been involved in racing since 1965 and is currently actively participating in TransAm, Late Models, NASCAR. ARCA and Sprint Cars.

our heritage

SHOCKWAVE’s heritage dates back over four decades to the development, building and supplying of safety products for NASCAR racing vehicles. It was this technology and know-how that led us to develop suspension seats and consoles for marine use. There is a direct connection between suspension technology in racing and how we design our marine suspension products.
