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.
