Fantastic for wing foiling

After a couple hard falls and close calls while wing foiling in the ocean riding waves, I decided to give this helmet a try. I always thought a water sports helmet would be bulky, uncomfortable, and get heavy with water. I was very surprised that this Gath helmet isn't any of those things. Its actually very comfortable and I really don't even think about it while on the water. It stays in place without shifting or moving around. Also when you are in the surf it does a great job of not filling with water and pulling your head in the waves movement, I'm guessing due to the neoprene forehead piece that acts as a seal and provides tension on the helmet.

Best helmet I found for winging

I tried a bunch of helmets for winging. Kept smacking the back of my head on the water when I was eating crap and getting head aches. Most other helmets would catch and give me whip lash.

The Gath Neo takes the sting out of wipe outs and it doesn't move around during your session. They look goofy but it works great.
