Rip Curl Hoods
Rip Curl hoods are the best, most thought out design on the market for cold water surfers. Not only have they obviously taken a ton of time to design them, they have perfected them over the years by listening to feedback from team riders, core shops, and suit testers around the globe in some of the most frigid places, making them the most comfortable hoods on the market.
E-4+ Neck Panels: The panneling around the neck of Rip Curl hoods is made with E-4+ material, making sure that the neck is super flexible and doesn't give you that "snap back" effect, and lets your head move freely and unrestricted.
Peripheral VisIon: The cut of Rip Curl's hoods is such that it allows natural peripheral visIon, and won't block any views or give you a claustrophobic effect.
Lock Slide Hood: An attached and adjustable shock cord design lets you keep the hood as snug as you want, without letting water in, and without it whipping you in the face.
Chin Cup: An adjustable chin cup that is just as comfortable whether you decide to wear it on your chin, or under it.
Short Brim Visor: The short brim visor on Rip Curl's hoods allows water to run off the side of the hood when you duckdive, rather than onto your face.
