Safety First! Longboard pads and helmets are a necessity for longboard and skateboard safety. The most important longboarding protective gear is of course the helmet, but next to that it would be the wrist guard. Wrist injuries are one of the most common for skateboarding, longboarding, and rollerblading. This happens because naturally, when we fall, we tend to throw our hands down to break our fall. If you land incorrectly on your hands, a wrist injury is sure to occur. After wrist guards, knee pads are the next most important. Scraping knees is very common, especially during the summer time when shorts are the preferred clothing option. Longboard knee pads come in two styles, sleek and slender G-Form pads that feel like sports wear. The G-Form knee pads harden on impact and are extremely flexibility and maneuverable. The other option for knee pads is the big and bulky classic style. These are good for sliding on your knees. A common occurrence in the skate park or when bombing a hill. Lastly are Elbow Pads. Elbow pads offer great protection for falling backwards. Falling backwards is also very common on skateboards, longboard, and rollerblades. If you lose your balance it can happen very easily, but luckily Elbow Pads will keep you safe.

If you were a kid on boards or blades I'm sure you had a parent want to tie pillows to your butt to keep you safe. Well now, butt and hip pads actually exist. Crash Pads are padded shorts to protect your tail bone and hips. This piece of lonboarding protective gear is great for people of any age and experience level.

So no matter what style of riding you do or where you are at in your learning curve, it is always a good idea to wear longboarding protective gear like safety pads. Just remember longboard pads will always be cheaper than a hospital bill.
