    Hey I remembered the brand that was recommended so highly it was Docs vented pro plugs they are only $10 for a permanant pair.

    Here is a sales link:

    I've rung my bell pretty good a few times to the point where I've seen some bright flashes on impact...no concussions fortunately. I am still trying to decide if a helmet is the right way to go for me. Seems to me, depending on how you hit the water, a helmet could actually make things worse...? If you smack your head down on the water while wearing a helmet, does the increased surface area actually cause your head to stop even faster thereby rattling the old brain within your skull more than w/out a helmet? While water can at times feel harder than concrete...it doesn't respond the same. I know while riding my mtn bike of my motorcycle, if I take a digger on the asphalt or dirt, the helmet is essentially going to crush and destroy itself to save my head. Is that the case with water helmets? Anyway...just some thoughts. Sure many of you saw this article on WW a while back. Sort of interesting -

I might just break down and order one because they fit that good.

    Good luck!

    Thanks for the link. I had a bad spill this summer and ripped my inner lip above my two front teeth. It also rattled my head pretty bad so i've been looking for a good helmet. Going to order a gath this week when i figue out the correct size.

    I'm pretty sure the padding in the helmet would save your life on a wakeboard too. I would not say it is needed though, unless you are prone to/history of concussions...
