I have wondered the same thing since I started riding..Its not just Pro riders,I think its Snowboarders in general.Although where I ride doesnt have the elevation that you would associate with risk we do have a Huge park section and some decently steep short hills..Its really the only place of its kind around so there is a alot of young decent riders just pushing it in the park as well as people bombing icy groomers that are literally bulletproof.And I would say its like 1 out of every 5 snowboarders wear a helmet.I think its ridiculous.Im sure that has alot to do with my age..I never wore a helmet skating growing up so I guess I understand but there is just sooo much speed involved with snowboarding..Only took me one snowboarding concussion to figure I wanted a helmet..Im just lucky it was only a concussion
t rice wears one from time to time when its sketchy stuff or something he hasnt ridden before. he wore one in art of flight for some runs. i also feel that the big mountain guys usually land in deep pow. but ive never ridden anything resembling movie quality conditions so i cant comment from experience.
It's hard to give that impression when you're wearing full body armour and mainstream protection. Their beanies are made of some Batman tech out of Kevlar and nano-quantum responsive impact absorbent kinetic gels.

I wear a helmet cause I dont want brain damage.. Pros.. I know some local pros that wear helmets when they are doing stuff theyve never done. Movies though.. It doesnt look good if a top level pro is wearing a helmet is what im guessing.
