Wrist guards in snowboarding do more damage than good you're better to learn how to tuck and roll. If you're worried about impacting check out Poc body armor I'd say get the compression vest because you don't need all the other crap for what you're looking to do. This will protect your spine. As for ass pads/hip pads they do work and you can get the compression shorts as well. But take it from a guy that was air lifted out of a resort and almost died from an impact most of this shit is just you being paranoid and not needing it. Get over the mental fear and you'll realize a lot of this seems silly unless you're over 30.
