Be safe and comfortable wearing the Gath Surf Convertible Helmet anytime you are playing hard in the water. If you want head protection without ear coverage and as little bulk as possible, the Gath Surf Convertible with detachable ear pockets will provide you a smart balance between impact head protection and lightweight comfort. The Surf Convertible's lightweight, low-profile design and convertibility make it the best choice for surfers.

The Surf Convertible features foam forehead coverage that adds additional protection. Flexible ear protectors automatically adapt to your face size and shape and are removable to suit temperature or user preference, and audio vents are fully adjustable. Fit can be customized with comfort strips to achieve a fit that offers maximum comfort and stability.

Product Features

  • Added Forehead Protection - Molded high-density foam padding adds protective insulation from bumps, helps hold helmet in proper position, and adds sizing element for optimal fit.
  • Neck Protection - The low volume, lightweight, rounded shell shape helps protect from the effects of "bucketing" water or from "snagging" the reef, a leash, or your board.
  • More Secure, Suction Cup Fit - Molded, closed-cell liner and peel-and-stick comfort fit strips allow you to achieve real comfort, security and proper fitting of head shape.
  • Wear It and Forget It Comfort - Flexible fitting ear protectors adjust to you! Ear protectors are removable to accommodate warm temperature or your style. Four-point attachment keeps Gath secure with or without ear protectors.
  • First Class Materials - The Surf Convertible's shell is high impact resistant, quality ABS plastic. The molded closed-cell foam liner is comfortable and non-absorbent. Non-corrosive components and adhesives mean long-lasting durability and low maintenance.
  • Ultra-lightweight - The Surf Convertible without ear pockets weighs only 280-305 grams (.62 lb.-.67 lb.), depending on size. Ear pockets add 60 grams (.19 lb) per set. You might forget you're wearing it!
  • Communication and Entertainment Compatibility - Gath ear protectors will accommodate waterproof speakers and microphones for use with one or two-way radios and waterproof MP-3 players.


Gath Surf Convertible Helmet Great Dome ProtectorReview by KIKI KIKI
My partner got a bad concussion surfing and wanted to get back in the water as soon as possible. This helmet has allowed him to continue his ocean play time while still healing. He says its really comfortable, and is thankful he has chosen this helmet. He has had some bad crashes towing big waves and the helmet has protected him. Its light weight, and has a sleek look. Thank you cleanline for finding me this specific helmet.

Gath Surf Convertible Helmet So comfortable Review by Jennifer Jennifer
On my first surf trip in El Salvador with a helmet. People are curious as to why I am wearing one. I forget its even on. Its so comfortable and light and I feel more relaxed knowing my head is protected from rocks, other surf boards etc. Great cusomer service too! The only downside is I can't wear my hat with a visor anymore to keep the rays off my face. I wouldn't recommend surfing with the version with a visor. It would need to be a floppy thin visor to prevent your neck from being torqued in a heavier surf wipeout.

Gath Surf Convertible Helmet Excellent, lightweight kiteboarding helmetReview by RF RF
I bought this to replace my heavier and bulkier old helmet I have for kiteboarding. I am foiling and got whiplish from a hard fall with the old helmet. This Gath is very light. It disappears when wearing it and you do not feel the force when you hit the water like my old one. Very close fitting and streamlined going through the water. No more "bucket head". I bought the optional visor also and it works well.

Gath Surf Convertible Helmet Awesome helmet for surfing!Review by Steve Steve
I never thought that I would wear a helmet for surfing, but it's definitely good to have, especially in crowded lineups. I used it yesterday for the first time at a surf spot in Ventura. It was really comfortable, easy to duck dive with and stayed on my head just fine after wipe outs. It also kept me warmer, which is nice in water that's in the 50s. I like not having my ears covered, and this surf helmet gives you that option. When ordering, I called Cleanline to ask some questions, and the guy I spoke with was very helpful. Also, I was amazed that the helmet arrived the next day after I ordered it. One complaint is that the padding inside the helmet can come off, but that's nothing that some super glue can't fix. Overall I'm very happy with it.

Gath Surf Convertible Helmet Didn't work for meReview by Penben Penben
Didn’t like this helmet. Convertible feature doesn’t look convincing. The removable ear covers get attached by a tiny plastic and little Velcro patch. Any serious water impact can blow these parts away. And I know how this protection is crucial after I had my ear drum ruptured in a water crush (I’m a kiteboarder).
You would better go for a full helmet version (not convertible) if you do action water sports. If you like this brand, they have this model available or take a look at NRS Chaos Full Cut helmet (I’m not associated with NRS, this is just what I’d buy instead).

Gath Surf Convertible Helmet same as above "dont notice it"Review by JP JP
Started using it after a hard crash in Kitesurf Hydrofoil, It is extremely comfortable, you are not aware that your are wearing a helmet, the hear protectors tend to create a little notice after 23 mph.

I love this thing, i have been using it in the surf and I forget that it's on my head before i'm in the water, and it stays put through all the wipeouts.
