Want more? This dude almost died, would have been a lot better off with a fullface...



"Now, six surgeries, 14 plates in his face and 30 screws in his hip as a result of a snowboarding collision with a tree in Maine"

So one guy fucks his face from hitting a tree, so now everyone should wear full face helmets?

Move along. It's unlikely, and unnecessary.

That's more like it. That's proper advice.

Like I said and then quoted myself saying.. I don't wear one, but people shouldn't be ridiculed for wanting to. Some of us have careers that we can't go into work to with scabs and scratches all over our face too... It's obvious there's a lot of children giving advice here.

Yeah, I'm sure he's the only guy, and nobody has every smoked their face on a park feature. I can see where it would be added safety I've caught a few stray branches. If the OP wants a fullface he should get a fullface.

Haha, I love how to justify your argument you've posted a picture of Shaun white with grazed chin!! I thought I would see a picture of some kid with a fucked up jaw (which before you do you're google image search, I'm sure there are photos of!).

I think we should all get armoured gloves in case one of us breaks a finger nail!

I'm not going to ridicule someone for it. But personally, I think it's unnecessary. My perspective is my reality.

You mistake this post for being against OP for wanting a full face helmet. It was more against the insinuation that a couple of people seriously injuring themselves should justify making everyone increase their protection.

It's this kind of talk that takes the "extreme" out of extreme sports. Life was a lot more fun before health and safety. A sensible amount of safety - go for it. But in my opinion, there is such thing as being excessive. You can't live in a bubble, especially when doing a notoriously dangerous sport. If you want to freak out over protection in snowboarding, there are more important places to protect than your face.
