Mike Vallely has a little interview/promo via Triple 8 talking about skating street with a helmet. Includes footage of him skating the streets of NYC and LES. Interesting perspective… do you think helmets will become more popular in the future of skateboarding?

Mike has recently surprised many skaters by choosing to wear a helmet every time he skates, after decades of skating without one. The culture of street skating, which he helped to define, largely rejects helmets. After some soul-searching, Mike decided it was time for him to make a personal change.

Triple Eight and Mike V are collaborating on GET USED TO IT, a new project to provide a different perspective on helmets. We want to hear what you think and check out your photos and videos.
