I had a small stack off my skateboard the other day. It could have been worse. For example, I could have smacked my head on the road. Fortunately I didn’t. But I did kiss the ground with my head a couple of days before, and then a couple of days after I came off again and opened up my hand again.
So, I thought that it might be prudent to buy myself a helmet.
I purchased a PRO-TEC Ace Skate from Skatebiz in Brisbane for $100. I bought the helmet in matt black, and immediately removed the stickers. It seems that the stickers were designed for easy removal, because they came off no fuss.
Pics of the PRO-TEC Ace Skate helmet are below with my Bling Old School skateboard.
I am hoping that I never get to crash test this helmet!
Given that the only damage I have managed to do so far is some skin off my hands, knees, hip and shoulder, I think that I probably should invest in some other body armor. But then I would not be able to pick week-old scabs!
