I wear a cascade lacrosse helmet. All closed cell foam so it weighs the same when wet and drains instantly. Its smaller than a moto or mtb so it pulls on your neck less when you hit the water. I also like the chin strap instead of a neck strap. Seems less restrictive when I'm winded. Less protection but I wear it a lot more. Might have something to do with that last round of stitches.
Fox Rampage Pro Carbon MIPS. A lot of vents. Super light and has plastic bindings and HD buttons. Visors are also really durable. With dealer discount you are looking at $259-300 Regular $499
If you plan on doing surf don't buy regular helmets e.g. fox or 661, they quickly will rust...in no time.
thank you for showing the LaCrosse helmets! Pretty cool!
I just bought one off the sidelineswap link I posted above. There are a ton of them listed on it!
Found a new one that was purchased for a collage kid that decided not to play. Still brand new!
$70 shipped. There are deals on there if you look! I stumbled upon MTB downhill helmets also.
I've been running this helmet for quite a few years, it's a Bell BMX helmet I got from Wal-Mart. (Like $35-$50 can't remember) Pulled the visor off and stainless steel screwed a motorcycle face shield to it. It's got plenty of scratches on the shield where it protected my face from the bars/pole and keeps the water out of my eyes while riding. I intentionally left a gap on the underside to let air flow in the case that the shield should fog up at all. (On a side note, I've been told I look like anything from Darth Vader, to Daft Punk while riding )
