bought for my fair skinned girlfriend to wear suring mid morning surfs in central america. works great! combo of fit adjustments and chin strap make it comfortable, but also staying in place for big sets and tought wipeouts. she's super happy and digs the blue
Well-made, super sun protective and comfortable. Wish there was a smaller size!
This hat was perfect! Did everything how it was explained. It was very windy where I was, having the straps helped keep the hat on my head while in the water!
I got the hat for my daughter, as she needs sun protection while instructing sailing. She is very picky, but loves this hat!
I purchased this hat for my Brothers birthday. He loves it! He told me that it’s, “Awesome! Amazing! & that he can even duck dive with it while surfing.”
Not only is the product great but they went above and beyond by sent a birthday note to my brother as well.
Just got back from a surf trip to Costa Rica, where I got so much sun on my face last year without a hat. I wanted more protection this trip and honestly, was skeptical of wearing a hat when surfing, but this hat's a gem. It is truly duck dive and wipeout proof and I love that the brim flips up so you can see where you're going when paddling out or for a wave. I'm stoked on my purchase and will keep using this hat until it's a scrap, then buy another Kaiola hat to replace it. Thanks!
My first surf hat and what a great surprise! It stays on no matter what and my husband is jealous of mine, so we have to buy another one :)
Got this in addition to my excellent cap, for 360’ shade. The bucket hat is similarly top-notch. Highly recommended.
I’ve had the previous model which is thought was good but this large bucket hat is brilliant for out in the surf on a sunny day I would highly recommend this hat to anyone who surfs and wants the glare and heat off your head while out in the water
This is the best surf hat I have used. Stays on well and blocks the sun. Take their sizing recommendations very seriously to order the exact right size for your head and you will be happy.
Love the hat, stays in with every duck dive. Comfortable, adjustable and doesn’t block the ears like other hats on the market.
This is the king of water hats. It will stay on your head so be ready in bigger surf, it's got pull.
I have tried a lot of surf hats and this one is the best so far. The chin strap is comfortable, snug and does a good job keeping the hat on your head when getting pounded. Sun protection is excellent and it looks a lot better than most other surf hats on the market. Just recently used it as a day hiking hat and it breathes well too. Construction seems solid so far. Thought went into the design. I would recommend the hat if you are on the fence about purchasing it. It arrived from Portugal quickly. Hats off to Kaiola ;-)
Best surf or water sport sun hat I’ve ever owned. I have purchased other brands but they usually get soggy brims after a couple duck dives and are useless after a few sessions. This hat still looks brand new after several uses. Works like a charm even in head high surf. Take their advice and practice using the chin straps before paddling out in bigger waves. It does take a quick practice session and better to not be fumbling with it in the line up. Five stars!
A few years ago I purchased the surf cap, I love it, but was concerned about my ears being exposed in the ocean. I am a 56 year old surfer who has skin cancer. When I saw the bucket hat I ordered it immediately! It is such great quality, floats, fits perfectly and provides fantastic coverage! I have received many compliments from other surfers! Highly recommend this product.
Best surf hat I’ve ever owned. Comfortable, brim does not flap, worth it
