Surf Helmet


SSH Surf Helmet - Soft Surfing Helmet Hat v2

Soft Surf Helmet [SSH] is a thermoformed headgear with peak and neck protector for use with watersports such as surfing, foil board riding and SUP riding

made from non-porous NBR foam encased in nylon elastane the SSH is designed to protect against reasonable impact in all extreme water sports conditions. 

super lightweight at less than 100g and constructed to allow water flow, the helmet is purpose designed not to balloon or try to remove your head if face planted in a wave. apart from being lighter weight, these soft helmets are also more comfortable and less cumbersome than wearing a hard helmet.

all listed items are V2 [version 2] and feature new click-in chin safety strap and streamlined neck protector.



Flip-Top-Peak can be positioned either up down, and is unique in that it will not obstruct vision during duck dive or any underwater activity with momentum. It will also spring back to its peak position when emerging from a submerged position.

Neck flap provides sun and wind protection keeping you cosy in the winter and blocking nasty UV rays in summer.


maximum audio capabilities allow the wearer to hear everything necessary for normal surf or water activity, while also providing protection to your ear canals against the elements
