DMC Soft Surf Helmet V2 (SSH)




VERSION 2 - Same great helmet with an upgraded click-in safety strap and streamlined neck protector.


  • DMC fins / SOFT SURF HELMET™ SSH™ is a thermoformed headgear with peak and neck protector.  
  • Made from non-porous NBR foam encased in nylon elastane the SSH™ is designed to protect reasonable impact in all extreme water sports conditions.  
  • It’s super lightweight - weighing less than 100g and constructed to allow water flow and therefore will not balloon or try to remove your head if face planted in a wave; for example.


The SSH™ Flip-Top-Peak™ is unique in which it can remain up or when down will not obstruct vision during duck dive or any underwater activity with momentum. It will also spring back to its peak position when emerging from a submerged position.

The neck flap is for sun and wind protection keeping you cosy in the winter and those nasty UV rays off when exposed.

DMC’s SSH™ has maximum audio capabilities i.e. you can hear everything necessary for normal surf or water activity.  

The main effective qualities of this product are: 

  • Audio (hear waves)
  • Buoyancy (float)
  • Ear (protect)
  • Impact (prevent)
  • Heat (keep warm)
  • Sun (off neck)
  • Glare (flip peak)
  • Visibility
  • Wind (reduction)

SSH ™ is a must for any extreme watersport or even junior watersport likely to have possible impact namely: 

  • Surfing
  • Wake Boarding
  • SUP Riding
  • Foil Surfing
  • Kite Boarding
  • Wind Surfing
  • Bodysurfing
