fredericp64 I'm just gonna go the DIY way. I flip in my backyard so it doesn't have to look nice.

The best I have in mind right now is to put an inch of masking tape to dispense the shock.

Any other ideas?

fredericp64 errr, I don't like the idea of making holes in my board.

I've seen some that you just stick on, Snowboard Nose Guard Kit, Tip & Tail Protector, NEW - eBay (item 260718997919 end time Feb-07-11 11:15:59 PST)

But then once the flips are mastered, you can't take 'em off haha.

Tough call.

But do you drill that shit into your board..? :S

I've never seen 'em in stores though. eBay I guess.
The plastic end protectors that I have seen have been riveted on.

You guys def. know more than I do about it. Just remember reading something saying they had made the claim, but couldn't remember the name, much less have used it!
