Professional big mountain snowboarder Xavier de le Rue hit his head on a rock last week.  His doctor thinks the impact would have killed him had he not had a helmet on.

Ride with a helmet, people.

“Today I was lucky, riding really mellow powder I hit a rock and then hit more rocks really hard with my head and blacked out for a while. Without a helmet the doctor thinks I could easily have died.
In the fourth photo you can see how much the interior absorbed the shock at the back.

Thankfully just a concussion with a massive headache and a reminder to always wear a helmet…even on mellow terrain.
Thank you @smithoptics saved my life today.” – Xavier de le Rue, March 1st, 2017
