Our tester used the Dolphin for both kiteboarding and swimming through the surf with his camera. He reported this helmet to be comfortable, warm, and unobtrusive.

At first sight, the board looks really clean and I love the bamboo look on the deck. The white pads are really classy and I love the fact that I don’t need to mess around with wax to keep it under my feet, with or without booties.

Adding straps is really easy with the metal inserts if the conditions calls for it and being in a minimalist mood, it seems that this 5’11 is the only board I will carry around from now on.
