Where can I find this Azzpad or something similar? The only bad-body-feeling I came away with after my last trip was a sore azz.
Probably some combination of turning 30...and all the ice in Colorado!

Read my mind!
I am about to hit up a freestyle camp in a few weeks and was thinking about getting some protection as well. Last time I tried the park was about three years ago; smashed my knee on the edge of a fun box slipping forward and couldn't walk properly for a month! (Also fell pretty hard on my tailbone the year before - still get some pain there at times). No way I am going near any boxes or rails without some knee guards, and would like to get some impact shorts that have good tailbone protection. Any other recommendations out there?
And yes, I am over 30! It is amazing how quick your body ages once you reach your 30th b'day!

|Snowboard_Otaku||i mean BA posted this but i slightly disagree about the wrist guards..... personally i just bought a pair this year and are looking forward to using them... some people say it just makes the force go higher on the arm but to me i rather have my forearm damaged than my wrist cause i need my wrist for my work lol.... its just a personal thing that my wrists are extra precious to me|

|Sudden_Death||I just ordered a set of the G-Form knee pads. The same guys who make the Poron computer cases etc... I will post up a review once I get them. They look promising and they also have shin and elbow pads made of the same stuff.|

these guys make excellent CE certified body armor, i found them when looking for motorcycle protection, i have the action shorts and the limb tubes for both knees and elbows, these are the most comfortable pads i've worn an they aren't near as bulky as other stuff. They cost a lot but they also cost a lot less than a ride down the mountain in a ambulance

Last season I shattered my radial head into 7 pieces. I will probably always need to wear elbow protection now. I researched a bunch, found POC (http://www.pocsports.com)to be the best reviewed on several different forums/product reviews/shop talk. Plus Jeremy Jones (big mtn) reps them, I think that says something pretty good about them. I subsequently ordered the Joint VPD Elbow. The only other piece of snow protection I have is a helmet. That said, as I get a little older, I am considering some shin guards (maybe some thrift store special soccer style) and tailbone protection.
I agree with snowboardboi, teach yourself to fall right!
