Default 45 YO - Same Deal

Hey, same deal >chiming in for support for the already provided good advice.
I picked up the sport relatively late and have been riding pretty actively - more speed vs pipe - but looking to jump more this year. 360's and jump distance are the goals this season and of course, remaining injury free.

Thus, I will also echo a STRONG call for Body Armour. I have the DEMON flex force pro upper body, CRASHPADS lower body, multiple helmets (go for the best rated ones!) and DOCMETER Wrist Guard Gloves.

I swear by all of these and while I cant compare these to the rest I can say that I broke my wrist using cheasy wrist guards (Triple 8's: made more for skateboarding/inline skating than snowboarding???). I have more dings on my helmet than I remember getting so it must be working.

Armour up and ride as free as you can!
