Longboard Protective Gear: gear up and stay safe, whether you're bombing the hills or commuting across campus
Longboarding skateboard safety can have many different requirements, depending upon what you're doing. A college student commuting back and forth to class, or a high schooler running down to 7/11 for a Red Bull have totally different risks than a downhill racer screaming down a canyon road at 40, 50, or 60 mph. So, what type of longboard protective gear you need will vary widely.
Longboard safety gear for around campus or down the street
For those longboarders using the board for point-to-point transportation, we recommend a half shell longboard helmet
, longboard knee pads
and longboard elbow pads
. That's a minimum outfit of longboard safety gear that helps you avoid a serious longboard injury, like a concussion or serious road rash.
Longboard protective gear for the serious downhiller
For those longboarders that are racing, or at least pursuing more challenging downhill/high speed runs, you need something....more. Your outfit of longboard safety gear will likely include a fullface longboard helmet
, longboard slide gloves
, and more substantial longboard knee pads
and elbow pads. Also, downhill longboard racers will need to think about longboard body armor
, longboard padded shorts
, and leathers.
