PSA - stay safe out there

  • Hey guys, I know all of you have moms that try overly hard to keep you safe everyday, but I just wanted to share that I lost a dear friend on a one wheel last month. He was at a park having fun on a level surface, and all we know is that he sustained head injuries that he could not overcome.

    I joined this forum I guess to help me understand how this could be possible, and it seems more plausible given what I have read about nosedive. Anyways, keep my buddy E in mind when you’re out there. Stay safe.

  • @PeauxB Super sorry to hear this news. That’s really sad to know someone has lost their life to this sport.

    Was your friend in Houston?

  • @PeauxB I'm so sorry this happened to your friend. Unfortunately, I think any activity where you're traveling more than a few miles an hour (biking, skateboarding, roller skating, etc) then there is a potential for severe head injuries. I can only assume that if he died of head injuries he was either not wearing a helmet or something truly unlucky happened to him. True a nosedive can be a source of sudden and severe falls as the rider isn't expecting it, but falls can happy for a variety of reasons other than nosedives. Whatever happened, I'm very sorry to hear about it.

  • @PeauxB
    So sorry for your loss. Appreciate the post / reminder to gear up before rides.
