as far as people thinking they are "cooler" or "better" then people who dont ware helmets i totally agree with you, those people are ignorant for sure...but me i never could get used to wearing one when i was much younger my mom would bitch about me not wearing one, tried it once didnt feel comfortable to me, this was a few years ago so im sure they helmet technology has much improved sence then but i honestly dont think it should be a big deal one way or another, granted there is no denying that wearing a helmet is much safer and could save you life depending on the circumstances....what i really fear might start becoming more popular is resots requiring the use of helmets, this i would be a little upset with but i fell it should be your responsibility as a skier to know you limits or abilities and not push yourself too too hard, but you still gotta progress so bottom line it should be your choice, dosnt make you "cooler" or "better" eaither way to me personally...
whoa whoa relax slick, i was agreeing with you for the most part eaither you are taking my 2 cents the wrong way or are just got something against people dont wear helmets or maybe both i dont know, i shouldnt have to take shit from some kid who dosnt agree with my opinion on the matter, besides you are not talking about people like me becuase i dont going around thinking or saying im better or more badass, as you put it, then you or anyone else that chooses to wear a helmet, there is no doubt its safer, but why the fuck do you care to lash out at people who dont wear helmets in reality your just as bad as those people you have encountered who brang about not wearing a helmet you see....
do you even know who that is?
If you get a good one and take the earpads off it still looks fine, and honestly alot of the time i forget i'm even wearing one. And two concussions already is enough reason to just rock it.
none of those bails from slamina were tom.. just his 4 x 9 friends... (jeff keisl, stevey stepp etc.)
none were tom. sorry bro
.. where i go.. its not like that. peple dont think theyre more "badass" if they dont wear one.. its just a different style really..
and not everyone thinks helmets are better looking.. personally i'd think hats are..
its soo true this gay sucky snowboarder called me a poser because i ski and wear a helmet i said fuck you do a rail and that ass hole shut up.
Well my mom works with brain injured people who some of them can't even wipe their own butt. So I definitely wear a helmet hah.
