Shockwave Seats

These guys make everything from jockey seats to these... I am not so sure about the sideways motion. They are on the other side of the pond though.

Grylls

Exactly... there are some videos of the trip he did... I know the electrician who rigged the whole boat, all the wiring for the consol had to be wired with 24" of slack to make up for the shock mitigation.

But if you're planning on going fast in rough weather, why you anyone want to be flailing around on top of a jockey seat (even with suspension) when you could be wedged securely into a shock mitigated bucket seat?

Nick Gilley and the FGT have Shockwave seats in Swipewipes and they seem to have worked well so far.

The number of people who have been ejected from RIBs over the last few years, as engines have got bigger, and speeds higher, really makes me question whether jockey seats are a good choice for anything above moderate speeds.

I have seen plenty of in race footage of people getting ejected out of bucket seats too.

It's not so much the seat as the negative gravity that is the problem I think
