A List of the Most Important Longboard Protective Gear

February 13, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 143

A slightly different version of skateboarding, longboarding has become one of the most popular adventure sports over recent few years. Its popularity can be understood from the fact that there is nearly a 25% increase in the number of longboarding players annually. However, with all the fun and excitement of this extreme sport, we cannot ignore the risks involved with it. It is a dangerous sport involving a serious risk of accidents and crashes. Therefore, it is important to take your safety quite seriously while learning and practicing this sport.

You can make adequate use of longboard protective gears in order to protect yourself from injuries during the sport. Many people refrain from using protective accessories as they feel that it might cause a hindrance in their normal movement. However, many leading protection brands are now manufacturing high quality protective gears that are completely flexible. These protective accessories allow an unrestricted motion without causing any distraction or discomfort to the player. These accessories act as a shield and protect you from serious injuries.

You may prefer being fashionable, but fashion never comes before safety. Moreover, nowadays you can easily find trendy protection accessories, with which fashion never takes a back seat.

In order to protect yourself during the dangers of downhill longboarding, you need to wear appropriate protection accessories, such as:

• Helmet: A helmet is a conventional yet the most important longboard protective gear. Not only in longboarding, but the helmet is used in almost all the adventure sports. You should ensure that the helmet you choose for yourself fits you well and includes the side straps and pads. Fasten your helmet for a snug fit to ensure proper safety as well.

• Knee pads, elbow pads, and wrist guards: All these pads are important to ensure that the injury prone areas are safe. They also provide support to knees to withstand all the pressure during the sport.

• Glasses: For a clear and unhindered vision, it is important to wear a pair of sport glasses. While selecting your glasses, you should make sure that the glasses are compatible with your helmet.

• Shoes: High quality shoes are important to offer you a firm grip on your board. The shoes must be lightweight, breathable, and must not slip. Ensure that the shoe laces are strong enough so that they don't break while strained.

Once you are equipped with these necessary longboard protective gears, you are ready to go. Don't forget to spend some time examining various longboards and selecting the one that suits your style and skill level in the best possible manner.
