Gath Helmets

Gath is proud to provide you with safety headgear which will help you enjoy your chosen sport for many years. Gath, the world’s first surf helmet, was designed by Australian surfer Ric Gath.This unique design was inspired by the drive to stay in the water longer, without the side effects from overexposure to the harsh elements and head injuries. Gath is a lightweight, very snug fitting helmet which is now the chosen headgear for many action sports in air, water and snow.

Gath Headgear is made from the latest technology in shatter-proof plastics and lined with EVA foam. It is designed to provide some protection against impact injury and the elements, such as wind and water chill, and the sun’s burning UV rays. Gath also helps to minimize the risk of chronic damage to eyes, ears and skin, such as surfer’s ear (exostosis), soft tissue growth over the eyes (pterygium), and skin cancers.

All models are now fitted with Audio and Temperature Control Vents for improved performance in all conditions. Gath provides unrestricted peripheral vision and enables you to maintain a sense of spatial awareness.

White, Black, Grey Swirl, Yellow, Red and Blue. Limited quantities of Gath specially painted by the manufacturer are also in stock. Custom graphics and painting are available through outside sources.



Gath headgear is guaranteed to be free from defects in materials and workmanship for 3 years from the date of purchase, provided it is used as intended and follow the Care Instructions strictly. This warranty does not cover scratches or the effects of overexposure to heat or continual, direct sunlight. Your Gath is NOT designed to provide the level of impact absorption expected of cycling or other land-based headgear.
