Protection FAQs

  • What Protection do you need for Skateboarding?

    The most important piece of kit aside from your Skateboard itself is your Skate Protection. All Skateboarders should have Helmets as a number one protection item. Falling on your head can lead to life long injury as well as some nasty scars. We rank Helmets as the most important item of protection for Skateboarding and beyond. Triple Pad sets are the best base layer of protection. This includes wrist, elbow and Knee Protection.

    Knee Pads are super important for Skateboard bails, and wrist support is paramount when falling correctly. Elbows definitely don’t seem to get knocked as much but when they do you’ll wish you had your pads on. Skateboarding Protection preferences can vary from user to user. Some feel comfortable with just a Helmet whereas others find they almost forget how to skate entirely when they don’t have their pads on. The extra security of your pads can give you the confidence you need to succeed.

  • Should I wear Knee Pads when Skating?

    It’s super important to wear Knee Pads when partaking in any type of Skating to avoid serious injury. When doing any extreme sport or activity, protection is paramount. As much as we like to think we’ll be a Tony Hawk pro from day one, a lot of Skating is bailing. The best bail will mean you only fall on your pads. Getting used to dropping to your knee pads will save the rest of your body any stress or impact.

    Knee Pads are designed especially to harness the surface impact in a way that least affects your knees and joints. Knee Pads can come in different designs to suit the nature of the activity. If you’re experiencing lighter falls when learning there are basic Knee Pads or foam pad sets. If you’re Skating in the park or in need of extra support, there are some great pads design built for impact park protection.

  • What Protection do I Need for Roller Skating?

    Roller Skating bails and falls can be more common due to your wheels being attached to your feet but there are lots of ways to minimise damage to your very important body and limbs. A triple pad set and Helmet are most important, but lots of Skaters recommend a decent pair of Bumsavers if you’re starting out or partaking in more extreme Roller Skating at the Skatepark.

    Your Triple Pad Set will cover elbows, wrists and knees but the Helmet is the most important piece of protection, regardless of activity. Your helmet protects the most important part of your body and is the only way to ensure a safe Skate. Bum pads are great if you’re learning to Skate and finding balancing your weight forward difficult.
