(Also fell pretty hard on my tailbone the year before - still get some pain there at times). No way I am going near any boxes or rails without some knee guards, and would like to get some impact shorts that have good tailbone protection. Any other recommendations out there?

And yes, I am over 30! It is amazing how quick your body ages once you reach your 30th b'day!
I did this quick review of a pretty sweet set of knee pads, http://www.snowboardingforum.com/equ...knee-pads.html. The other nice thing is that they pretty much cover down to the top of your boot as well. I am using the Azzpad for tailbone protection and between the two I have taken some decent hits and come away fine.
