Really? I thought I've seen some slalom skiers with a guard.... Hmm, maybe I'm wrong...

Kind of what I was thinking.

I'd agree too. But I noticed the previously posted shredready site had a helmet with a guard on it under the watersports category.

BTW - why I wear a helmet even while just riding - http://vimeo.com/54804149. That was a pretty hard faceplant and I did not feel a thing (on my head anyways).

I liked the Liquid Force helmet because it fit very close to the head = less drag on "re-entry". Mine is the "Core" model. http://liquidforce.com/helmets-core.html.

I use the ProTec helmet. I wear it primarily for the ear protection as I've blown out ear drums before. Definitely confortable.

LD jumpers like the guard to protect the face!

Good info and I'm convinced. Why test your luck for the new year?

My son always wears his helmet for the same reason. Finding the correct fit is the key to protection and comfort so you will always wear it.

I don't quite understand how a face guard would cause more issues... I can't find any medium sized blue/black protec ace wake helmets. Are there any other good helmets with ear protection for $50 or less?

This really has me considering a helmet. I have thought about it before, but now that I am adding ballast to the boat and will be trying bigger jumps, I will probably make the investment. I know that trying on a helmet would be the best way to size it, but does anyone that has a helmet know if it fits in size like a motorcycle helmet? Boat show is coming up in a couple weeks, so i will see if anyone has any there.

After a big smack yesterday its helmet time.... Anyone heard of these guys?

http://www.nrsweb.com/shop/product.a...6&pdeptid=1768

Even though its not wakeboard specific its made for watersports

The reason i am gravitating towards it is it has a internal fine tune adjustment that i don't see on any other brand (not talking about the chin strap)

Thoughts?
