... before riding this year read this link and take it into consideration. I've had a few minor concussions but this guy really puts it into perspective for us. He also brings up the age old question of helmet or no helmet. If nothing else please just look at the link because of the hilarious crash pics.

My personal opinion is a helmet is valuable no matter what the sport. As a hockey player, I KNOW it has saved my noodle a time or two. I have a bent mask wire to show for it. As a paramedic, I've seen way too many patients who would have not had as serious a head injury had they been wearing a helmet, especially skateboarders. Wakeboarding should be no different. Falls are similar, with the head getting whipped down to the water surface, which at speed can be as 'hard' as concrete. Result: concussion or worse.
