Most esk8:ers ride without protection, which is like crazy. When falling from a board that moves at almost 40 km/h you are going to hurt yourself. So be prepared!
Right now we are preparing a feature about helmets.
Meanwhile, I just bought these kneepads and elbowpads; 187 Killer Pads combo knee & elbow pads Camo. Because camo is cool. USD 50:- at sk8ratz.com (SEK 600:- including shipping to Sweden).
That’s peanuts, considering the potential benefit. Really! Ill tell you more about them when they arrive. Maybe.
Regarding wrist guards, our contributor Martin Blodaur recommends Triple Eight Hired Hands, which allows you to handle the skateboard remote. They are SEK 600:- at skatepro.se.
Stay safe out there, fellow esk8:er! ❤
