    Future Jumper

    This is my nephew he is only SIX years old, in Kindergarden.
    He was asking me if he could show me how he jumps, I said sure but no sissy stuff
    make me say WOW...so he took it to the top of the driveway and landed this.
    His mother captured the shot (His brother& myself under the ramp)

    The boy needs a helmet though. The kid shows no fear. I'd make sure he understands safety at an early age. Keep up with the encouragement.

    Best Wishes.

    My thoughts exactly!!! Please make sure that he wears a helmet when he rides. It is great to see his interest in the sport and with a little coaching from yourself he will continue to enjoy.


    Buy him this and he will be all set.

    Bah. Doesn't anyone remember a time when helmets were something reserved for motorcycles and football? Granted, we now have laws *requiring* them - but the kid's jumping on the lawn. Unless the ground is frozen (and the poster's shorts seem to indicate otherwise), damp grass and leaves aren't going to split any heads.

    You are right! There probably won't be any blood and guts. And who really cares about one of those little concussions anyhow?

    Please. I'm not *anti* helmet. I won't let my 7 y.o. ride anywhere outside of our backyard without one and, if he were jumping over spectators - I'd see to it that his helmet was on.

    That said, the kid in your story crashed in the street, not in the grass. Big difference. And, his helmet didn't prevent the concussion anyway.

    Show me a case where a fall from 2 feet onto grass and soft earth causes concussions and maybe I'll re-evaluate my unpopular devil-may-care stance that it's okay for a kid to ride sans helmet on the lawn from time to time.

    Well, here is some info relating to falls on grass. After reading this I think I will make my daughter wear full downhill armor to play! Sorry if I touched a nerve but far too often do you see people riding in busy streets, on trails, or in jump parks with out a helmet. Ever since PA passed the no helmet required law for motorcyclists I have become more aware of helmet safety. I think that this may also come from a friend that was killed on a motorcycle due to a head injury. And he was wearing a helmet.

    Im not trying to be anyones mother or a nag, so sorry if it came across that way. I will end my little safety rant now and will agree that boys will be boys!
