This hat has been specifically designed for kiteboarders.
Check out these features. A brim that shields your face from the harsh elements. THESE FOAM HATS FLOAT!!!....that's a must have if you are around water. Adjustable so you can make it bigger after you do some cool trick and your head swells.
I don't think you'll find a better hat if you're a kiter.
You get to choose between the Shield patch and the Retro Round. Both are subtle, but hey, you're probably a grown up who still plays with kites so you don't care.
