For the record, I won't be wearing a full face on the board. But.. I won't be laughing if someone else chooses to do so.

I think there's a consensus here, and with that, I'm out...

I'm definitely not going to stop boarding because it's dangerous. It's mostly just a matter of finding the right balance to mitigate that worst case scenario.

That's kinda what I figured. Thanks for the ideas.

I looked at the Ruroc.. It's a very cool design. The main turn off is that it won't work for biking and is too expensive for me to justify purely...
