surf specific helmets

Post by Grisjambon »

looking at getting a light weight helmet to use just for surfing- I am aware of the old Gath ones, quite hard to source- any comparable ones I should be looking at?

Thanks

Gath and Gecko are about the only real options for light surf helmets (unless you are Tim Thomas in which case an old Ace Ap helmet is the go to).

How about a Vajda slalom helmet. I have the clearcoat version, it is super light and very cool. It wasn't cheap but it looks like there's been a few price rises since I bought mine.
