Default Board to the face.

My second time riding, I somehow managed to fall, and my board came up and hit me in the face. While it was strapped to my feet....

The edge hit me right under my eye. One inch higher, and that could've been really bad. I ended up with a black eye for a week.

Lesson learned: Wear goggles and a helmet.

Jesus shit dude, wear some goggles..

Helmet, eh, I'd wear one since you're a beginner.. or just be more careful, I never got around to throwing one of them on. But goggles, yes. You'll poke your eye out!

Wear 'em! Don't wear 'em. Entirely up to you! Your eyes, your noggin.
I'm more interested in How you managed that?

Just like WeeMan but with both feet and a board strapped on... Maybe you're a wee person...

Go get one, seriously. I picked one up this year and it's already saved me once from a nasty head vs snow fight. I didn't even realize I had hit that hard until I woke up today with a really sore and strained neck.

Also it keeps your head nice and warm! No need for a hat any longer.

awesome video! i don't know if I would say that helmets are cool, but I will say that I don't really care if people think i'm cool or not, and i'm going to wear a helmet regardless, I also won't think anyone is uncool for wearing one

actually, it would be more likely for me to think that someone who ISN'T wearing one was uncool!

nice, glad it saved you, but I hope you've already thrown that one out and are planning on replacing it. Like motorcycle and bike helmets, they are designed for one impact, the EPS foam in it crumbles, cracks and disintegrates, while absorbing the impact, and while it may look like it's in good shape, the outermost layer of the foam may be, while the rest has turned to sand, offering no protection! basically, it might work again, but it is more likely to do nothing... worst case scenario, if you need to go hit the slopes again, grab a bike helmet that's in good shape!
