i think a helmet is definately an important thing to own. most skateparks require that you wear a helmet. i take a helmet with me wherever i go, but i usually take it off to ride once i arrive somewhere. i wear it when im trying a new trick and stuff like that

skate boards kill trees

def a important thing to wear when you're learning something or at the park and trails
not too much or street, but when crazy stuff is going on you must wear a helmet
that "no pads" trend is stupid

I usually always wear a helmet when I'm riding skatepark because it's so much easier to slip on smooth concrete and jumping ramps and stuff is alot more dangerous than flowing on street.

When I feel like I want to try something new and am not quite sure of the consequences I put it on.

Screw what your friends think. Get a helmet. You need them for skateparks and new tricks. Also if you wear a helmet, you might get in less trouble because people think that you are being safer. I wear a helmet almost everywhere. MontyMitch is right, you can replace pads, helmets, and bikes, but you cant replace your brain.

Important when learning cause youre not used to how your bike reacts and transitions and shit. Once your comfortable with your local park, its not really neccesary, but definately where it when trying new stuff.

I say always wear a helmet when you are on your bike, It has saved my life atleast 3 times, Even when you think you have something dialed wear it cause you can have an off day or just a freak accident like i did and i ended up falling 12 feet to my head and i had a full face like Craig Mast and Dave Mirra and i still got a major concussion but i would rather take that then being retarded or dead for the rest of my life . Thats just me
