Default why kids need to wear protection

To all parents who let their kids ride park without helmets or pads
Watch the below video


My kid launched off a jump and leaned back too far when launching. Luckily he was wearing body pads helmet and butt pads.

He is sore, and shaken up, but it could have been much much worse without pads

This is why you need to stop taking advice from the internet, and start getting your kid a coach/instructor.

If we could just get rid of this damned internet thing all our children would be safe.

Kid has had some coaching at Woodward. His tramp training on bailing bad jumps, helped him. He knew to tuck in and try to land on butt and back, and avoid hitting his head. Even with the best coaching, kid is going to miss a jump, once and a while. He hit that jump just fine 5 times today prior to that thump.

Why I posted this, is that I see so many kids out on park without helmets and other body protection, it's a choice and I get that as well, but if one parent sees how things can go bad, perhaps they will insist that their kid suits up prior to running laps at park.

Default Protection for Kids

I agree that kids should advised to wear helmets and pads during the games. I think it should be made compulsory for everyone going for these types of sports like skiing and snowboarding.

Coaching in the barn, internet coaches, dad with no freestyle coaching experience. Which one of these is helping in making safety decisions out on the hill, judging which features are safe to hit taking into account rider ability, conditions etc?

I'm glad you all see the funny side, I see, from 10 years and thousands of hours coaching experience, a child a hairs width away from a serious spinal injury, or worse.

Freestyle and snowboarding in general obviously carries inherent risk, minimizing that the best you can is your duty as a parent.

A pretty reckless comment from someone in a position of authority on a public forum.

FYI I advised this guy weeks ago to get a coach that could make safety decisions on the hill, rather than people on the internet hes never met.

Get off your high horse you pleb. Your comment was completely unnecessary.

If you actually read the OP, he was just talking about safety equipment.

Then why the fuck would he listen to you?

Glad he's ok Larrry My middle son 16 then did this last year. The following afternoon the ambulance was here hauling him out. So keep an eye on him for muscle spasms.

MGD81 I"m not a Dr. just to state that! You might also go back and read some of Larry's threads before you just throw around your opinion on how he is coaching his son.

Just because someone is an Admin doesn't mean they can't comment positive or negative on any topic, thread or post
