Well, here's how I look at that. I am someone who doesn't want to look "pussyish" even tho I have a pussy. Im a female but...well Im a total tomboy.

I have a personal thing agasint helmets. They look ugly, they mess my hair up. They're ugly. I hate them. They're ugly...do I need to go on?


I bought a Bern with ear phones built in as an incentive to wear it. I even got one that matched my outit!!! I still hardly wear it snowboarding. I still hate it. My friends make fun of me as they all wear one. I call them pussies. ha!

Then I fucking crashed really hard on ice. It hurt pretty bad, not bad enough for a concussion but bad enough to where it ruined the rest of my day on the mountain. I took a fuck load of advil and it still hurt. I called it a day and went home.

If I had my helmet on, I would have gotten right up and kept riding. My friend I was with that day had a ton of fun w/o me. And I lost a day of riding because I didn't want to wear my helmet because "my beanie is so much cuter?



that said you'd think I learned my lesson. Nope. I still roll without a helmet. I wear one most of the time when I ride my bike but if Im running errands and don't want to carry it with me inside I won't.

Thanks lol. Normally I agree; bumps, scratches & bruises are something you have to accept if you ever want to progress as a rider, but if you can avoid any unnecessary damage to your body, especially if it's needed outside the snowboard world. It's kinda hard to be a personal trainer if I have a cast on my leg trying to follow my clients throughout the gym. Also, people have other hobbies. One of the main reasons I started boarding so late was because I was an avid athlete in High School and College. One injury while boarding could fuck up my baseball career. Would't want to ruin everything that's good in life because some douche wants to judge you by the way you look.

SnowOwl fuck that I hyperextended my knee BAD tearing the ACL & MCL at once, along with other ligament and meniscus damage. so I have gnarly knee protection.

Home page :: Asterisk Knee Protection

I'm getting one of these next season; it serves as a knee pad and brace. And I found one at a huge discount, not like I expect people to dump this much cash on protective gear.

Triple8Sol Helmet and spine protection make alot of sense. Shoulder and chest too. Knee/elbow far less so.

I don't wear kneepads, but many skateboarders do. Landing on hardpack or a feature is almost as bad as busting on a skateboard and can still injure you.

Long story short, some people care more about enjoying snowboarding injury-free than how they might look to some judgmental schmoe they have never met.

How is your ragging on someone for wearing safety gear any different than skiers ragging on snowboarders back in the day? Seems like the same holier-than-thou attitude to me.
Tailbone injuries are horrible. As far as the skiiers ragging on snowboarders that seems retarded. I used to skate and I never wore fucking knee pads.

Layer up in some fucking sweatpants, your dad's old motorcycle jacket, and some sunglasses and go ride.

I can't believe all these babies careening around the mountain wearing dayglo tracksuits. They look like power rangers.

Ah, I guess they can do what they want, though... and i will just make fun of them as they squeeze into their metrosexual spandex base layers and stupid $7 polyester socks.

I just don't get it....
