Do I need a helmet for surfing

Surfing can be a dangerous sport, and taking care of your head is always important. Surfers wear helmets if they are surfing big waves or are surfing near reefs, or any chance there is a good likelihood of hitting your head. Hitting your head and becoming unconscious in the water is a scary thought especially if you are surfing on your own. It is sometimes a good idea to wear a helmet at the most crowded of spots, which can be full of beginners who might not have learnt how to control their boards. You might also see a lot of surf photographers wearing surf helmets for the same reasons.
