Purpose

We aim to make the participation in these action sports safer by understanding:

The injuries these action sports athletes sustain

  • How often they get hurt,
  • Severity of the injuries,
  • Time lost to sport participation
  • Impact on athletes outside of their action sports participation and more

How and when action sports athletes choose (or are mandated) to use personal protective equipment, (and if this impacts injury occurrence and severity)

Looking directly at the efficacy of personal protective equipment

Compare the injury, severity, rates, and time lost to competition compared to “traditional” action sports
