    I knew I would get these kinds of reactions because ive been here before but I also knew there are some people (like you) who actually watch the longboards and the tricks that are done with them instead of watching whats on the skaters heads.

    We most certainly are paying attention to what's not on skaters' heads AND the quality of skating they do.

    Of course people are paying attention to the skating too, and its not terrible skating man. Not really my style, but you guys obviously know how to skate and have a lot of skill for this style of skating. I remember your last thread like this with the Super Shaka, and this is pretty similar in style, good but not GREAT, and not really charging all that hard. Mostly low speed techy flip tricks and spins without a ton of flow, just a lot of technical "tricks". People pad up and wear lids because they skate hard and crash hard, and they want to live to do it again, and again, and again, and again. Like this awesome example just posted up on SHM. If you guys were Really charging it, you would all be decommissioned by now because these types of bails are a common occurrence when your pushing it. Nobody's trying to be your nanny, just trying to open your eyes a little. No offense intended.

    Can't even tell you how ignorant you sound in the comment section of your videos. Yeah sure, to you wearing a helmet looks dumb, but to every other serious skater out there, you look dumb for not putting on a lid. I'm sure half the people on the fish wouldn't be here if they hadn't put one on. You get mad respect points for having the common sense to put on a lid, you lose them for not.

    With that being said, your tricks are pretty good, but it should probably flow better. But props to your dedication to the sport! We bitch at you guys to wear a helmet because we care! Try to understand that!

    Thanks dude, yeah ive heard this a million times, but one thing I always see is that everyone says they care about our saftey, which isnt really true because all you're worried about is this stereotype that longboarders get for not wearing a helmet. I do know some pro skaters in real life who don't wear helmets and they ARE serious skaters. Oh well thanks for caring about me.


    Stupendousman - I wear a helmet when I bomb hills, but when I'm at the skatepark where we just skate back and forth and I feel really comfortable on my board I don't really wan't to have this hot ass thing on my head the whole time. I've seen many bails and it's not like I don't get what a helmet is for, we just use longboards as skateboards pretty much and have a "skater" mentality when it comes to helmets. I'm not gonna show up to a huge ass hill without a helmet. I feel a difference between a spine at a skatepark compared to a 40mph downhill. I know the die hard hillbombers are pissed I dont wear helmets but actual skateboarders have never said a single thing to us regarding a helm. The one big difference between longboarders and skateboarders seems to be the helmet. This post will probably just piss everyone off like all my other posts do, but whatever, i'm not yelling at anyone.

    My worst injury came at 5mph, pushing to the post office to mail wheels without a lid on. Never again.

    I would, to be honest. As much as you may not like it, you're a representation of this small sport. Act accordingly. When you make skating look cool, new skaters want to get into it.

    They go beyond their bounds, they hit their head, they get skating banned on a hill. I've seen it happen. It's ****ed.

    And yeah, I know Jon. I hosted the Minneapolis slide jam. I'm doing a few events next summer, be sure to hit them up. And bring a lid!

    My worst injury came while going 2.5mph. I was skipping to the snack bar at my local pool. I should have listened when the life guard told me to walk! I'm never doing any activity without my lid, ever again!

    Probably more than I do now. Helmet's show a sign of responsibility and maturity.

    The worst fall I nearly witnessed actually involved my friend not even moving on my board, trying a pivot. She would have cracked her skull if it weren't for the helmet.
    The closest I come to being black is surfing blacktop
    Because I have to keep my head cocked and watch out for angry cops.
    If not I'm burning on that hood white hot
    And I'm wondering what I did just to get myself caught.

    Boomshank's arguments for not wearing a helmet:
    >They're hot
    >I'm not going to fall anyways

    Sounds like a whiny kid to me.

    You are in a bit of a funny predicament here, and you are contradicting yourself all over the place. You seek acceptance and praise from two very different groups among the same community, but are having a hard time finding acceptance from either. The street skater's don't respect you because your on a longboard, and the downhillers don't respect you because you are too stubborn and ignorant to heed their advice and don a helmet. Have you posted your videos in any street skating forums? My guess is probably not. Street skating is not your thing. You like a hybrid of street/freeride/dance/freestyle all performed on longboards, which is really pretty rad IMO, so you come to a "longboard" forum and say This is the Ultimate! We're Stepping It Up! I want to see your next video be called "We're Smarting It Up" and just put on a helmet already.
    And to clarify something else, it is not necessarily YOU that people care about. People are replying to your videos regarding the lack of a helmet because they care about the skate community, and who is out there representing that community. I don't know who you are, and it will not effect me personally if you smash your head on the ground without a helmet. What the **** do I care about you personally? Nill. You guys are good skaters, and it would suck to see talent thrown away if one of you ended up as a brain dead vegetable just out of sheer ignorance and stubbornness. But thats not what anyone Really cares about. It is how it can really effect me if someone/anyone smashes their head on the ground without a helmet, and leaves an impression on the general community that ends up getting a spot shut down and has people reporting you to the police everytime the see someone skating in their neighboorhood all throughout your entire city/state/town. Because remember that Other skater who got carted off in an ambulance with his brains hanging out, oh yeah I read about that in the paper, better call the cops and have them tell these kids to leave before someone gets hurt again.
    THATS what people f'n care about. And the fact that you are influencing other more impressionable people that not wearing a lid is a perfectly acceptable and safe thing and Cool thing to do.
    Its good that your wear a lid doing any sort of higher speed stuff, but its usually where we are the most comfortable that we get the most hurt. You are not as focused when your doing something way inside your comfort zone, and that leads to those spontaneous bone breaking head cracking Stupid-"Never should have happened" types of falls. They are called Accidents. Don't kid yourself.
    That was the longest F'ing post ever...

    These guys do.
    TheIanTilmannFoundation.org
    Fill out an application and get one for free.
    If they dont get back to you, I'll buy you one, but I cant promise the same selection they do. It would probably be the T.H.E B1 Hooligan from JensonUSA for $7.99. Still a good CPSC cert helmet, just 80% off its $40 msrp.

    I'm just curious when God decided to give his title over to TylerHill. Give me a break dude and step off the pedestal.

    In regards to skating without a helmet; do what you want, it's your life. If you kill yourself you're only helping improve the species.
