Vlaze I would suggest the OTS wrist brace. Google that and you'll find (from cycle zone I believe it was?) two versions, one from hard plastic mold and another carbon fiber which is pricey. IMO they're worth the money, best wrist protection that you'll ever buy that supports the wrist down the forearm and literally prevents your wrist from moving back too far depending on what angle degree stop you use. I've used it ever since breaking my wrist and getting carpal tunnel from a motorcycle accident.

baldylox Very true. Just think she shouldnt worry about colors since she's not linking turns yet.

svwannabe Im not saying go straight from the bunny slope to a black, i just found for me and my friends progressing in snowboarding that once you have the confidence to go down blacks everything else is easy.

lceman You probably did way better than me the first time I went. I didn't leave what I'd call a kiddie hill. I fell on my ass so many times that I think the mountain was trying rape me. It went a lot smoother the next time I went though. So congratulations on the first trip! Try to go again ASAP so you can get used to it!
