Now with saying that, I don't wear a fullface but ride with a chick who does. If it makes you feel safer and you're having fun go for it.
haha, I ride a motorbike as well and wear a full face helmet (superbike on European roads), and yes you can go fast but, unlike on a snowboard, you keep your head relatively straight (probably turn it +/- 30 degrees whilst cornering at speed). When snowboarding your head and neck is a lot more dynamic and you turn your head a lot further.
The fact that you're comparing riding a motorbike and a snowboard is idiotic! It actually has more in common with skiing if you think about it!
