Just got them online! $47bucks... unfortunately backcountry.com only had 'youth' size. I got them from ProTec IPS Hip Pads: padded shorts for action sports.

Hey guys, has anyone tried or have experienced the AzzPadz (► Snowboarding: Snowboard Tailbone Protection Equipment from AZZPADZ I'm looking at tailbone protect and this seems pretty good. However, I'm hesitant because those straps you put around your thighs seem mighty uncomfortable. My other consideration is the Seirus padded shorts. Any feedback would be appreciated.

I wear wrist guards every time, and everywhere i ride. Its too easy to break a wrist, ill be getting a helmet soon, and that's about it for me. Wrist guards ftw.

I wear a helmet every time I ride, and wear my crash shorts only when I know I'm going to be hitting the park. I thought about wrist guards, but I don't think they're needed. Just learn to fall and you'll be a-ok.
