Yeah, I kinda thought the same thing. Especially as I'll be learning at one of the best places for powder in NA...

Meh, what the hell right?

That and I bruised my tail bone years ago and it was terrible for weeks. I'd rather not repeat that. Besides if it all goes smoothly I may want them for learning jumps and 180's and shiz. Might come in handy if I decide to bounce my arse off a box...

I saw your other thread and you sound way more naturally athletic than I was and far more in shape. The number one thing I can say is lessons, I took 3 lessons last season. My very first day, my second day, and like my 7th. Maybe it was the lessons that kept me off my ass. Either way, don't think I would worry about too much as your probably only going to wear them for 2 days then say fuck it.


........Then again maybe it was the super deep pow we had last year that saved my ass!
