    i had one for quite a while that i used mainly for snowboarding. got it through surfer's supplies in '99 & wore it till it died in 2006. it worked great & definitely saved me from a few trips to the hospital. very comfortable to wear & kept my head warm even in the coldest conditions. i never wore it surfing, tho it did make a trip to panama w/ me in '05.
    i think supplies still carries them, or at least has a relationship w/ the company & so can get them.

    They're worth the money no doubt. Used one in Hawaii. I was lucky enough not to need it, but the sense of security helped alot.
