When you are longboarding or skateboarding, always wear protective gear to avoid any real injuries. Take care of yourself. Safety First! Skate Helmets and pads will help with this.
Wear a helmet that fits well and the buckle should be closed. Skate helmets are pieces of safety equipment designed to protect your head in the event of a fall or crash. Some states, like Califonia, require wearing a helmet when skating for people under 18.
Knee and elbow pads reduce the severity of scrapes and cuts and prevent gravel burns.
Wrist Guards to support your wrist during falls and reduce the risks of breaking a bone.
Good shoes with soles that don't slip.
