Importance by Beee • January 7, 2013 Each year too many injuries occur due to not skating safe. On this page we want to explain the importance of skating safe. Here you can find info on helmets, helmet certifications, safety gear, videos of crashes/injuries and news items about what happened in the skating/longboarding/streetluge community. This text is taken from an email, sent by a mother who’s son had been in an injury. As I look at this helmet, I know, without a doubt, that it did save my sons life. What I saw moments after impact would have been much more gruesome as I am certain it would have been his skull that shattered or split instead of the helmet. And that’s why we wear helmets ! To protect our heads ! Get involved yourself !
