Helmets

Are helmets recommended and if so what are the best ones to use with a Kona One rig?

No, helmets are not usually part of windsurfing except in very high winds. I've never seen a sailor wearing a helmet while sailing a Kona One.

It doesn't matter if helmets are not usually part of windsurfing gear.
Catapults can lead to violent impacts with the mast or board. 
Go ahead and wear a helmet if you are not completely confident about your skill in heavier winds. I wear one when it is windier and don't care what it looks like!
