Hi all!!

Has anyone been hit on the head while windsurfing? I wear a helmet for
moutain biking and other contact sports but never considered one for

I see a few folks wearing helmets and I wonder if it is just to protect
their teeth or are they actually worried about getting hit on the head?

Does the mast hit you on the head or the nose of the board? I consider
a hit on the head pretty dangerous but I am not yet sure this happens
while windsurfing? I usually sail in deep water is the helmet for
shallow water?

I sail Natural Bridges and do the seaweed skid a lot.. My body goes
flying over the nose of my board at amazing speeds but I have never
hit my head. Looking for any info?
