    I wonder though if the increased paddle power of the larger surface area is completely offset by the fact that you tire out quicker having to move maybe a pound more weight on each stroke?

    Helmet's tough. I can't imagine wearing one but if a doctor said I had too after getting a head injury or not surf, I'd get a skid lid in 10 seconds flat.

    I always feared wearing a helmet would put you at risk for neck injury. I'm probably wrong, but that always kinda sketched me out.

    Id buy it. Off topic but i jack my neck up wearing a hard hat at work. Don't usually wear one but on certain jobs and properties i have to. Power plants being one of them. Well i know how tall i am. The hard hat adds about an inch im not used to or conscious of. Always hit my head while ducking under pipes or beams while wearing the hard hat. Hard hat does its job and protects my head but my neck gets tweaked.

    Point being just because it protects your head from impact doesn't mean it can't cause other complications that can injure other body parts.

    Ok, have you guys seen the "shark eyes" ad on the side of this highly monitored 4um?
    WTF, those eyes look like there are saying "come and tongue my tonsils". I would want MAD, CRAZY DEVIL eyes or the open gaping mouth of a Kraken on the bottom of my bort. Kraken.JPG .....IDK but those passive eyes are kinda sensual......

    From what I remember, I do think they worked a little. But it feels more comfortable to have a cupped hand rather than spreading your fingers out as you paddle, so got rid of them.

    Body glove had some webbed gloves in the late 70s that were pure crap and of course i tried them
    They forced your fingers apart and really got heavy when they were wet so pretty much useless

    I had a pair of those A.P.E. paddling gloves as an early adolescent sponger back in the 80's, better than nothing if you didn't have swim fins
