i guess shawn white but who else?
dont you get slammed harder on a board when you fall compared to skis?
anyways i dont want to knock on people who wear them,
but i think people who dont need them,(vanular, delorme, who?, favre, gagnier, rougier, bertoni, rolland, candide, auclair, and all of level 1) deserve some respect. They dont deserve to be called stupid. Some people just have it, and wearing a helmet isnt necessary for them.
and another reason.... I wouldnt watch a skateboard movie where everyone was wearing a helmet and hockey pads... that would just be stupid. The added risk does add to the sickness of whatever is being done. Watch high five and maybe youll start to get the idea of it.
