No Brain no Pain!!! Options: A) give up boating; B) hang it on the wall as art; C) buy a new helmet. D) None the above

All are correct answers however if you choose D) and hit a rock again your chances of turning into a drooling chunk of Cauliflower for the rest of your life are increased dramaticly.

That's funny!

But seriously, a great reminder. Be glad you were wearing a good helmet. The WRSI folks started their company after their son lost his life in an impact while wearing a lesser helmet.

Maybe glue a base on it and use it for your new camp drinking vessel?!

Man if I do that it would be the one time I wished I had a bigger head like an orange on a toothpick

I do a lot of work with TBI patients, use to do more of the longer term and recovery work, now it is mostly acute. Buy a new helmet.
Even "multi impact" helmets should be replaced every few years due to breakdown of the foam inside without any damage to the lid. Like Andy said, you answered it yourself really, but anything beyond a good scrape as far as visible damage warrants a trip to the paddling shop. Other than some of the DH and jumping helmets, one ding and done for bike helmets too. Any dents in the foam weaken them and they will break much easier than intended when undamaged.

Say thank you to the helmet. It did its job.

Now go buy a new one.

A couple years ago I broke a brand new helmet on boulder creek on literally the 1st day I had it. (My 2nd helmet of the season)
Everyone was saying how that sucked... I was saying how it was awesome, I was standing there talking and laughing about it... Not unconscious under water.

I broke a Boeri Carbon-Ski Helmet and the manufacturer sent me a new helmet no questions asked. I see no reason not to try that approach with WRSI. It good PR for them too!
