I was perusing the www.skatefurther.com forum today and came across a link to www.whoisadamcolton.com‘s upcoming solo skate journey in Peru, Bolivia, Argentina, and Chile.

In true world wide web surfing fashion, I ended up clicking on a link in Adam’s website about helmets. He condones helmet use in skateboarding. So do I. And here’s a wee website that will make you condone it too. Link found via Adam’s website. Just click on the image to start watching some very compelling videos.

Hi Rob,

Happy new year.

Loved to read your adventures and I admire your will not to give up. You will absolutely find a new balance in your live.

Shocking vid's, but I agree on the helmet thing. Bought one a few weeks for use on my recumbent. Hope never to be in a situation where it is needed :-)

Ian, another skater, he died due to accident and not wearing helmet. His family put together foundation and is trying to give away as much helmets for free to the youth for the price: Promise to wear it!
