  • Do you wear a Helmet..

    I personally don't wear one. From what I see on the forum a lot of people do. My parents grew me up on not wearing a helmet... Bmx...skiing....fruit booting... I hit my head a lot of times... A few times where pretty freaking hard too.. I have a hard head I guess it doesn't bother me.... and no there is nothing wrong with me from hitting my head..haha The one time I did hurt myself a helmet wouldn't even of helped. When I was Bmxing I hit a jump death cased it and smacked my mouth on the handle bars.... thus me getting a fake tooth, and fractured face.... so.... I'll look at helmets again this year but probably wont get one.. Just goggles to protect my eyes....


    oh yea I don't do flips.... But if I did.. I told myself I would get a helmet. OH and putting your hands out to protect your face works... or crashing and rolling does too...haha

    I don't... yet. Said I'd get one when I start doing big airs or rails.

    I know which one I'm going for so it might end up being a xmas present or something.

      I usually do. I knew a guy who was crashed into by another skier and was knocked unconcious and had to go to hospital. Sometimes you just get bad luck, even if you're not doing anything dangerous yourself. I once got hit in the head by a poma lift - I'd got to the top let go of it and the lift stopped and it swung back in my face as I went down the off slope. I think I might have got a concussion if I hadn't had a helmet. I've also been taken out by a snowboarder going too fast and out of control. I clocked myself using GPS at speeds of 30-50mph, so I like to be safe!

        Yes, pretty much always. I've gotten so used to having one on that I don't even really think about it.

        Besides just protection, helmets are also very nice to have on really cold days since they provide some thermal protection.

        Life is not a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well-preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and loudly proclaiming... "WOW! WHAT A RIDE!!"

                Nope don't have one. I'm like Jack, don't go into the park, but unlike him my hills aren't steep enough to get lots of speed so I haven't found a use for one yet. Plus there is very little for a tree scene here, so that's another reason I don't have one.

                  I spend way to much time around trees not too. A side effect though is it makes me go faster. I end up thinking 'Well I have this helmet if I slam into a tree'. So it actually makes things funner!

                    If you're not very good, you need a helmet. If you're going big, you need a helmet. If you're hitting the park, you need a helmet. If you're going fast, you need a helmet. If you're hitting the woods, you need a helmet. If some clueless jerk might run into you, you need a helmet...

                    Other than that, I guess you don't need one.

                      I've never worn a helmet but I've been thinking about getting one sometime before Jay (if I can find one I like that fits well).

                            Well then to all of you I must be lucky. I haven't worn a helmet since I was 5 years old for skiing. With no skiing indecent.
