Thanks!! I'll check it out. Definitely looks protective. Been on the water enough years, I know things can go bad quickly.UKSurf wrote: ↑Fri Aug 09, 2019 5:55 pmhttps://www.ebay.com/itm/NEW-Bauer-BHH5 ... SwZMFc2v5Q
I used one while learning and I didnt give a fck what anyone thought about it. Did I need it? - probably not but there is a risk of getting smashed in the face by the foil especially in the early stages when you are likely to totally lose control of things. Visibility is pretty much the same as with something like a Gath helmet and you dont really notice the metal cage. Feels a bit like kitesurfing with a suit of armour on - designed for impacts in ice hockey. The helmet will rust a bit if you use it in salt water but other than that is fine for kitesurf use and can be secured firmly with the straps, it will not fall off even if you have a major wipe out.
Thanks. Since football season starting soon, I'd fit right in...might just look like I took a wrong turn to the field.
Good Idea , using a helmet with a face-guard !!
