After an ear accident which I had at the Teexas Ski Ranch last week, I'm thinking about buying a Pro-Tec Full Cut water sport helmet. Does this help against ear drum damage ? Thanks in advance for your response

It limits it but does not prevent it in all situations. There is a thread going right now by the name "yep, you can blow an eardrum while wearing a helmet". I was video taping and posted the crash. The crash was somewhat abnormal. The helmet will usually protect you.

Gath offers helmets that come down over the ears.

Jim, Helge is talking about a different helmet than the Wake helmet with the ear flaps. The Full Cut is more of a kayak helmet, where the shell covers your ears, not just a flap. I would think this would protect your ears much better than the Wake helmet. However, it still has vents on the ears, so it's not complete protection. The Gath helmet, with the ear vents closed, would offer the most ear protection.

Bird thats exactly the helmet what I'm talkin about. Yes it has vents, but maybe the water gets in turbulences behind the vants so that it will not directly shot into the ear ... maybe .....
I already have ordered it .. thank you for your response
