It only took one big fall for me to realize the importance of it. I wear one all the time now.
Very true for me too. Just recently I went riding and I remember coming down a slope at a fast speed. When I tried to turn I don't know what happened but then next thing, I was on my knees with my goggles on the ground
. From that moment I started feeling the symptoms of a mild concussion because I started forgetting stuff like "Why am I here?", "How did I get this board?"
It was a scary experience and yet kinda funny because of all the questions my friends said I was asking but it definitely was enough to get me to purchase a helmet. Do they have ass pads?? LOL
