rva I always wore a helmet and always will, I don't care what people say about what looks better, I'd rather not be brain dead.

nomembername My suggestion would be to #1 head to the board section and ask about a board choice there. Those guys give excellent advice and they tend to shun Burton for cheaper boards that will complement your riding style better.

And as someone who just got a helmet with speakers I have to say its really made hitting the mountain much more enjoyable. Especially the cold rides up the mountain with nothing to do but fght the temptation to take your phone out and risk dropping it.

I would have killed to play tight end, only issue is my team didn't use them. At all. Always a five wide set or a four wide with a back. So that destroyed my dreams haha.

rva Yeah its like broken ribs and a dislocated shoulder on steroids haha. But the snowboarding concussion happened the same year so did not have to worry much about using that anymore. Thanks for the advice though, I don't need any more nasty concussions to say the least. I'd say the cream of the crop came in a football game being kneed in the back of my head and going out cold for 2 minutes. Put me out the rest of the season but I guess a couple missed games of high school football will be better than being a veggie the rest of my life. Anyways it is good to be coming back and I think I am actually headed to the store on friday to get a board. Coming back as a beginner I guess I've been looking at a burton blunt. Any suggestions?

carsbybigd Sounds almost like"Broken ribs".....thanks for the advice.And if you fall and hit your head wearing a helmet[snowboarding] most say to replace it ,as the foam gets crushed down. Welcome Back by the way .

rva I went to a school with small kids so I was a left/right guard on offensive line and noseguard and tackle on the d line yourself?

Bretfred Thats where i got all mine was football in hs. Was about the same size as you. Except the strong legs part. Had a pin put in my ankle. Was just to where i could hit legs good again senior year. My upper body made up for it but lost alot of agility. what position did you play?

rva I played high school football and am 6 foot 215 lbs but, not to be cocky, have some strong legs so I can cut real hard on a wakeboard so air isn't a problem but your right it isn't the same. And back to the football, I've blacked out twice from concussions along with another milder one, then one with a helmet snowboarding slamming hard on ice. But I'm looking forward to starting back up and thinking a little bit more money will be put into a helmet.

Bretfred Damn ive had a bunch of mild concussions in my life never any major ones. Had my first boarding beginning of this year decided i am going to rock a helmet plus its got speakers. Wakeboarding helps the craving to shred but its just not the same to me. Plus im a bigger guy so I need a big wake to get much air. Definitely have learned alot from these forums its a good community. Even the assholes contribute lol.
