It is pretty cute and secure! Can't wait to use it in Hawaii next month!
Hat is legit. Stays on tight so far and I don’t get water trapped in my ear like other surf hats. Highly recommend
Kaiola hats offer excellent sun protection, durability and comfortable fit. The cap is incredibly well-made. It's constructed with high-quality materials, and it shows. I've put it through some rough sessions in the water, and it still looks and functions like new.
While I primarily use it for surfing I've found this cap to be versatile. I've used it for various water activities, from paddle boarding to snorkeling, and it always delivers.
The KAIOLA surf hat really stays in place, even during heavy wipeouts, and it is particularly helpful during hot midday sessions. Not only does it offer great sun protection for your skin, but also for your eyes! It really makes a big difference - highly recommended!
I love this cap, I have used it every day during 2 weeks of surfing and I haven't lost it in any wipe out. It provides great protection against the sun and is stylish.
The only thing I would change is the color of the strap on the full black model, rather than grey I would have preferred black.
Hope to get more when I get more $
The price and international shipping is a bit high
Best surf hat ever... and that's actually fact.... the design is better than the competition and the materials last very well in the ocean.
Every now and then you try something new and realise you’re not going back to the old way. Too easy wearing these caps, they go great in surf, save the eyes and a head full of sunscreen. Well done guys
Very high quality construction and well thought out design!! Been surfing with hat almost daily in waves from 1 to 4 feet Hawaiian. Will be making more reviews after my up coming surf trip to Indonesia. Love the Hat!!!
Best surf hat I have owned. Excellent fit and good design.
Fits great. Does not come off in heavy surf. Easy to care for and stays in shape. Love it!
I purchased this for a trip to Costa Rica but was able to test it out wake surfing beforehand. So far, it has been great. It stayed in with wipeouts, is light weight and adjustable. I’d recommend ordering one for a friend. Will update this once I’ve taken it out in the surf
I generally hate wearing a surf hat - I have tried many over the years and they all end up in the bin - but on a recent trip to Fiji, I felt I better wear one as I have burned my scalp one too many times - and I have to say, this hat is fantastic... better than anything I have ever tried and well worth the price. You can duck dive, hear, see and do all the other things you need to get your share of solid waves. I can't recommend it highly enough.
As advertised; very functional sun protection.
I love that the chin-straps are so thin and well designed so as to be out of the way. The hat stays on securely - never had it slip during a duck-dive or wipeout.
I like that I can flip the visor up during paddle-out.
All-round great addition to my gear.
Just used my Kaiola hat in Costa Rica and it was fantastic! Comfortable and stayed on! Ox
Really nice hat. Even with a bit more powerful waves it stays on the head. Duck Diving is no problem.
This style of surf hat is super comfortable and provides awesome sun protection, really rapt with my purchase. Highly recommend
I am obsessed with my ugly surf hat. It’s the coolest version of the not coolest thing you could do… just do, own it, and be the old person in the hat. You’ll love it- I promise! Haha
Great hat! Keeps my hair out of my face and stays on my head great even while duck diving!
Holds up well in the surf.
The best! Buy it, you won’t regret it.
Comfortable, doesn’t obstruct vision like some buckets. Stays on. Looks good
I love this hat so much. I legit will not surf without it! My husband hated on me for a bit for spending so much $ on a surf hat, but then saw how much I loved it/wore it..sooo he ended up ordering one too (oh and he loves it just as much or more than me)!
Bought this hat for a 2 week surf trip to Fiji and just got back.
1. Style is super cool. I tucked the chin strap in and wore it like a regular hat- it was comfortable and I received a few compliments. I like the strings instead of straps- it’s low profile but very secure. The clip never came unclipped once during all of my sessions.
2. Hat stays in place when surfing and is comfortable. Waves topped out at 8ft and the hat stayed in place for every duck dive and wipeout. It didn’t impede my vision and I liked the flip up feature as well. It blocked the sun but wasn’t too cumbersome. I enjoy the low profile style very much and I look forward to seeing how it holds up in the long term.
I’ve already started recommending this hat to every surfer I meet
I love to see things that are well designed and constructed. The hat looks like it’s checking both boxes. The tuck away chin strap is great for when I’m using it on small days or out of the water, and when the surf picks up, it’s simple to buckle the chin strap and be confident the hat will stay put. I’m looking forward to seeing how the hat breaks in and gets that nice sun and salt cured look!
The surf hat protects my eyes and face when I’m boogie boarding on the windward side, Oahu, Hawaii. Felt a bit unsure about the neck strap when taken under, so I just tie my hair through the loop in the back and tuck the straps under the top of hat. There is a warning on the hat, and I think that scared me because I’ve definitely been pulled under and lost everything. I had specifically looked for a hat that wouldn’t come off, but I don’t want to be strangled either. Nor scalped Looks wise, it’s like a jockey hat. The hat is light, it feels a bit small on the crown, I purchased the small/medium having measured at 22 in. appx. I have it tightened as much as possible and it’s still a bit loose, the lid is small, so to speak. The surf hat and Manda sunscreen 50 spf keep me going for about two hours full sun, boogie boarding. Overall, I like the hat, the 80 spf a plus. Not sure if it’s any better than a regular trucker hat for my particular purposes, though.
Most comfortable and stylish surfing hat on the market!
This is my 2nd surf hat (from KAIOLA) and I don’t even surf. It’s UNIQUE, gets lots of compliments, and cleans up WELL. Must HAVE
High quality, sustainable built, water/sun proof hat. A must for every watersports enthusiast!
