Skate Nerd : Radio Safety 101
DISCLAIMER: THIS IS A SECONDARY SYSTEM TO IMPROVE SAFETY! ALWAYS ASSESS THE SITUATION YOURSELF! RADIOS ARE NOT PERFECT. EVEN WHEN THEY ARE IN USE, THINGS CAN AND WILL GO WRONG! ALWAYS SKATE LIKE THERE IS DANGER AROUND EVERY CORNER!
We are here to teach you about using Two Way Radios with your downhill skate sessions for added safety.
The Short Version:
Send a spotter out in front of the pack with a radio.
Give your skaters in ear radios.
Don’t get hit by cars.
