Thanks for the warnings. Wife took a look at one of the tutorial videos and just said, dont come crying to me if you put out your shoulder. Of course i wear a helmet, but no other crash pads.
I think i am only going to try them if i find a nice powder drop off. I still have my 360s to neaten up anyway.
Having a wife who loves snowboarding is both a blessing and a curse. I get to spend money on it and we go every weekend, but that means its hard to go on my own with other more competent friends that would Gee me up to do tricks like this.
Instead i constantly get the voice of reason and safety "dont drop off that", "are you sure you want to risk that?", "you jumped off that edge, find your own way back up" lol
