Custom Painted Whitewater Helmet

If you are tired or bored of the standard graphics that come with whitewater helmets, you should head over to The Downriver Kayak Company where they offer custom airbrush design.

Email in a description or photo and staff artist, Seth Cassarotti will do his best rendition of it. The price is fairly cheap at only $39.99 which includes a clear coating to increase durability of the paint job.

Silly Helmet CoverIf you already own a helmet, you can mail it to them for the same price plus shipping back home.

I think the final product looks fantastic. Almost as nice as the silly helmet cover I tested out a back a couple of years ago. The cover worked out great except that I didn’t follow the instructions which said to tape your cover down to your helmet. It blew off during a gale storm surf session and promptly sank. Sad day.

I miss those horns but I think I would like painted flames even more.
