Was looking to get a com setup for the boat to the boarder. Not wanting a loud speaker type system but a headset system. Can someone chime in and or give a few links to setups u have or you recommend?

Thanks

I know this is a little out there, but I follow Shawn Murray in instagram. I know that he does a lot of wakeboard coaching and that he uses the headsets you're thinking about. I know he's a pro and everything, but I'd imagine that if you reached out to him that he'd give you a recommendation...

I was thinking the Bluetooth wireless for motorcycles that are waterproof but most of them are designed to fit into helmets.

They make products for coaching that meets your request. What's your budget? There are probably cheap knockoffs if you search.
For swimming: http://aquacam.us/ ($300)
For sailing: https://www.murrays.com/category/bluetooth-coaching-kits/ ($475)

A reasonable solution might be to use "bone conduction" headphones (usually designed for swimming) You'd have to sort out how to get the coaches microphone side of it but that seems doable. Aftershokz is one brand, for example - Amazon search (https://www.amazon.com/s/ref=nb_sb_noss_2?url=search-alias%3Delectronics&field-keywords=aftershokz). I wouldn't even consider earbud style headphones from a safety perspective - there is no way you want someone to take a fall with something sticking in their ear.
