Properly Measuring Your Head for a Helmet
What size skateboard helmet you should buy is determined by the size of your head. It is important to note that each brands skateboard helmet size will vary; therefore, it is best to measure your head and refer to the sizing chart specific to each brand of helmet. In order to properly measure your head, follow these steps:
1. Wrap a soft tape measure around your forehead, just above your eyebrows and ears. Keep the tape measure level from the front to the back of your head. Your skateboard helmet should sit low on your forehead.
2. If you do not have a flexible tape measure, try marking a string and measuring it against a ruler.
3. If you are unable to measure your head, you can use your hat size to find the comparable skateboard helmet size in centimeters.
If the helmet is a gift or you cannot measure the skater's head, measure the inside of a current helmet or hat they wear.
