I suggest waxing it and detuning your edges before you go ride.

You should de-tune the tip and tail edges...but yeah definitely not the whole board!

Definitely a helmet...
and I'm not sure how this would work to be honest, but if you can, get some sort of wrist guards as well.
I broke my arm just simply falling backwards once down a slope and I've had a friend who fell over in line for
the ski lift and broke his as well. Doesn't take much... :/
