SkateFurther Nat got himself and new helmet and wrote a review for the forum.
I have worn a helmet for a long time – after many, many years of fighting the inner skateboarder in me.
As I started skating distance the advantages of a peaked cap really stood out. The peak could shield your eyes or neck (if you wore it ‘backwards’) and somehow the peak focussed you on the road ahead. To begin with I was using a Capix Sportscap – designed for wakeboarding (I skated with one of these for SkateNewZealand back in 2008) but they were basically a plastic shell with foam stuck on a few places. These eventually went out of production – just as a new snowboard company – Sandbox, came to the market.
