Skateboard protective gear - the skateboard is just the beginning
The Consumer Protection Safety Council (CPSC) estimates that one-third of all skateboarding injuries occur within the skater’s first week on the board. Just because you aren’t doing any complicated tricks (yet) doesn’t mean that you don’t need skateboard protective gear. Falling hurts. A skateboarding injury can keep you off the board and away from the sport you love. Why risk missing out on sessions with your friends when you can prevent a lot of pain with some skateboarding protective gear?
In this order, your skateboard safety gear outfit should include:
If you’re skateboarding, you need a helmet. Beyond a skateboard helmet, how much skateboard protection you need depends on how and where you skate. If you’ll pulling burly tricks on the street or the park, you’re going to want high-quality skateboard pads for your knees and elbows. If you or your child are just learning to skateboard, you may not need professional-grade skateboard pads, but you still need protection.
