hire a local air brush artist to make some cool design and tell your buddies to shut up and give you another one of "their" beers

My suggestion about the Giro Remedy S didn't work for ya?
Same as the pic above, but the jaw piece is fixed. And it's designed for snowboarders.
(I remove the visor piece though.)

btw how did you do in the jaw...and no full face will prevent you from kneeing yourself...which is the only jaw thing that might happen unless ur in the park.

I usually have trouble with helmets as well. I cannot fit into any Sandbox helmets or most Bern helmets, even if they say XL or XXL.

Smith Holt XL did fit for me, however. That is my first recommendation since it's EPS approved.

I also found a Bern Macon XXXL. I think it's a discontinued size or at least I had a lot of trouble finding one. It fit perfectly, but this is a hard hat and not EPS certified.

My main issue with helmets is that my skull is pretty wide, so most helmets pinch the sides of my head to the point that they hurt. That's my reason of going for XL+ helmets. Hopefully my info helps you out abit.
