1) I can't believe this thread about some gangst urban turned into a helmet discussion
2) I can't believe how many pussies there are on NS
They are professional snowboarders! They don't where helmets because they are some of the best at what they do. You don't see pro street skaters/bmxers releasing segments wearing helmets. Who gives a shit if they are not influencing little kids properly, that is their parents jobs. These guys get paid to look cool doing gnarly things, when you have a helmet on in a shot it says "I was worried this feature had a better chance of fucking me up than I had confidence to slay the shit out of it". The confidence it takes to not wear a helmet brings out a riders true style.
Beside's did I mention they are professionals?? Everything they do has calculated risk to it.
I'm not saying that helmets are a bad thing, I wear one 95% of the time I am skiing. I am just saying that anyone who wants to be a mom and say that pros should be wearing helmets and are stupid for not can go suck a dick and maybe stick to sports that do not fall into the "extreme" category.
