Being one of people described above. Yes, helmets are a must!
A Protec skateboard helmet saved my noggin when I went head first into the concrete wall. I would not buy one of those clones of tacticool stuff to look cool. Nor will I buy clone CAT or any other safety equipment. You might not need it ever, but if you do, cheap clones will cost you much more than you might save buying crap.
