You do realize a regular helmet with goggles will 95% of the time block all face shots right? The front of the helmet protrudes past your face line right? So when you fall face-forward, the first thing to make contact is the tip of the helmet, saving your face. I think you would be getting a little extravagant with those other helmet

I wanted a sig, but I need a job first.

why don't you just stick your hands out, pull your board up and slide head first like you're sliding or baseball or diving for a ball. that's what usually do.
