Does anyone wear a helmet while being pulled behind a boat or is everyone wearing them just in the cable parks?

The only reason to wear a helmet behind a boat is because you're mounting a camera on it.

They can cushion impact due to padding inside and distributing the blow throughout the shell. Impacts are impacts, and it wont completely eliminate compressive blows. The optional ear guards can protect against blowing out your eardrums. Make sure it fits well, and expect to pay 60 or more.
