Global Leader in Marine Suspension Seating


Marine Suspension Seating for Recreational Boaters

Since 2001, SHOCKWAVE Seats has designed and manufactured innovative marine suspension seating to protect boaters from the shock of wave impact. From recreational boaters to military vessels, we develop the best suspension modules on the planet.

You deserve better

Does your boat not have seat suspension?

Take the boat out for a few hours and ask yourself this: Does my body ache? Am I unusually tired? Am I feeling the need to cut my time on the water short? Or maybe you have a past injury that prevents you from taking the boat out altogether!

The point is, if your seat isn’t designed to take abuse, you might. Travelling at even moderate speeds without seat suspension can cause cumulative back and neck pain/injuries. Wave shock impact can be unforgiving and over a long enough time period, it can leave you debilitated and unable to take the boat out whatsoever. You deserve to be comfortable, and to enjoy every minute on the water!


The S5 Sentinel absorbs wave shock and can help prevent high-impact and cumulative injury. It can be installed on any boat, bringing SHOCKWAVE technology to people who want to stay out longer, fish/play harder and keep comfortable. In any conditions, SHOCKWAVE has your back.

A full suite of world class products

We don’t just build world-class suspension. SHOCKWAVE offers a full suite of products that provide an unbeatable marine seating experience.



The S5 Sentinel is most often found on fishing boats, coastal cruisers, ski/wake boats, guide boats, fisheries boats, whale watching boats, crew boats and yacht tenders. Due to its universal design, the S5 Sentinel can be fitted to almost any boat and any seat.





Benefit from our Dealer network

Ordering through a dealer enables you to talk to real people about the product and ask questions ahead of making a purchasing decision. Our dealer’s prices are often better than on our website. Our dealers can generally get your products faster than purchasing direct through our website. Some dealers may display products in their store so you can actually sit on the suspension seat and see how it works, prior to purchasing. Also, many of our dealers stock product, so you can walk away with your new S5 Sentinel Suspension Module.


What our Pro-Staff say about the s5 sentinel

“We teamed up with SHOCKWAVE this last year and it has stepped our game up to the next level. We can now make longer runs and be more efficient with our time on tournament day! Not to mention way less stress on our backs during the rough weather days!”

– Team Barton,

Port Lavaca, TX

We fish hard for 2,3 and 4 days straight sleeping over night free in the Gulf of Mexico. We are one of the most hardcore teams in the gulf, we don’t backdown from much. The SHOCKWAVE Suspension Modules are essential to our performance.”

– Trey Baker,

Pensacola, FL

“Our crew and clientele absolutely love the S5 suspension module! We have thousands of hours on our S5 modules now, and wouldn’t want to run with anything else underneath us!”

– Adam Petnuch,

Saint Augustine, Florida

“My upgrade to the S5 suspension seating package from SHOCKWAVE has literally eliminated the feeling you have of running a boat day in, day out on the big water.”

– Mark Coleman,

Seattle, Washington
