I've got a few watersports helmets up on Craigslist. Perfect for Kiting, windsurfing, etc.

Pro-Tec - Ace Two Face - MEDIUM- $60
Pro-Tec - Ace Two Face - SMALL - $60
Gath - SMALL - $80

Pro-Tec: https://vancouver.craigslist.ca/rch/spo/6621104891.html
Gath: https://vancouver.craigslist.ca/rch/spo ... 21179.html

My wife and I recently upgraded to GATH helmets with visors so we no longer need these helmets.

Thanks for looking!

Where did you buy the GATH helmets with visors? Half face or full face?

Full-face visors are popular in Richmond. I might get one too.

I'm intrigued by the North American trend to wear helmets for windsurfing. In the 11 years I've been doing the sport, I've only ever had 1 head injury (broken nose), and in that case the style of helmet most choose to wear wouldn't have helped anyways... I don't think I've ever seen a French windsurfer wear a helmet (except maybe Greg!) :lol: Maybe we care more about style points..

PFDs I definitely understand: we're out there in deep water and can sometimes get separated from gear. To each their own, I suppose.

While I never wear a helmet kiting unless riding my foilboard I would wear one windsurfing for the same reason I wear one with the foilboard:

Chance of getting knocked unconscious.

I have a Sweet (whitewater helmut brand) that i wear for protection but mostly the brim. It is like a baseball hat.
No pfd. Other than flotation from wetsuit and harness.

very true my friend , until a few years ago , I never had a helmet and I should have , especially after passing out on my board in 1999 oops...
I wear mine in "challenging" conditions , big swell , not great viz, or with numerous sailors around like the hatchery , where fins literally fly near you all the time !
Helmets help, ask Francis , a few years ago Caro's mast hit the poor guy in the head after a failed beach start ....

tout le monde est different, chacun son truc !

Cheers
