|Original Gath Surf Hat with expandible NEOPRENE HEADBAND (320-345 gms)|
Nothing will ruin your holidays as quickly as accidental head injury, (even minor cuts requiring stitches), especially when travelling to remote areas. The Gath helmet is an inexpensive form of insurance that may minimise the risk of injury and help ensure a good time.
Treatment for head injury can be painful, costly and complicated. Wearing adequate head protection may help reduce the risk of serious injury and could possibly save your life.
Many users of Gath say wearing head protection provides extra confidence to really go for it.
Please note : Gath Headgear offers some protection against impact injury and may build confidence however, it is no substitute for common sense and may not afford protection from serious injury or death. Gath Headgear is not recommended for use on roads or highways or for use as a crash helmet.
Gath's unique audio system opens to improve hearing and ventilation or closes to shut out cold wind chill to help avoid ear ache and long term ear problems.
After a few sessions, Gath performs so well you forget you're wearing anything on your head.
Like most equipment, it takes a little getting used to. At first the sensation of having your head enclosed is strange but quickly you feel comfortable in Gath. Use your Gath a few times before making any judgements about it, especially in water sports - and soon you will feel naked without it. Certainly the high usage of Gath by many pros and freestyle extremists is proof that Gath makes sense and is ideal for many sports.
