The Surf and Watersports Helmet

The original design from Gecko Head Gear, the surf and watersports helmet keeps your head warm, comfortable and buoyant while you enjoy your favourite water based activity

The surf and watersports helmet was originally designed by Jeff Sacree’ for himself, so he would have something warm to wear on his head in the surf and something to protect his head from rocks hiding below the surface. The stylish lightweight helmet was quickly adopted by other surfers, and soon became an essential piece of kit for body boarders, windsurfers, kitesurfers, wakeboarders, surf kayakers and even skydivers!

The Gecko surf lid has two side inserts that take grips to hold equipment such as a camera or flashlight.

Knowing its life was going to be spent in the bottom of a wetsuit bucket the shell is made from fibreglass and the materials used in the liner and strap are designed to avoid soaking up water, so you can rinse off the salt water at the same time you rinse your suit.


The patented liner inflates and deflates to give you a perfect 100% custom fit each time you wear your helmet, and it stays warm and comfortable for hours of use.
