    Don't have a full face helmet?

    BUY ONE! I went over the handelbars today and came down and knocked on the side of my face. My back and shoulders is torn up- but nothing serious. If I wasn't wearing guards and a full helmet my I would be in more pain and my face would be horribly disfigured and you would all call me ass face and other names that would hurt my feelings . The knee/shin and elbow/ forearm guards helped, too
    Mark
    p.s.- If you do have a horribly disfigured face, please say so, so we can hurt your feelings. lol j/k

    there's NOTHING quite like going over the handlebars from 3-4' up, and watching the ground come up REALLY fast. I tried to roll something a couple years ago, steep roll, ledge, steep roll. I didn't clear the ledge, and endo'd, falling the last 4 feet or so before hitting the ground face first. Was wearing my FF, which ended up getting scratched/cracked to sh!t, but was ok except for a little bit of a stiff neck. Don't always wear my FF, but when I'm not I stick to stuff I've done before. Hey, people can do whatever they want, but that view of the ground coming up along with the feeling of freefalling is enough to scare me into wearing a FF whenever I try something new/stupid/retarted/etc.

    yess, 661 makes great stuff

    It's probably a 661 "full comp" helmet which is a good one. Also check out the bell bellistic- It's 50 bucks, very comfotable, pretty light, and saved my ass- or head i guess
    Peace

    Sounds like every ride I go on

    I usually wear a fullie.. oddly DJ ing and skatepark I prefer a DJ lid for the added vision and I can hear better..

    ya need to be able to hear when kooks come up straight snake gankin' ya...

    almost every serious crash I've had at a skatepark was caused by a kook snakin' a line.

    ...anyway

    FF is a must for most stuff I do. But there are times the DJ offers 'more' in other ways is what I'm trying to get at, I guess.
