Here is where you can get some Dakine Wrist Guards:


The over the glove guards are great if you ride with pipe gloves. Otherwise the Nova Glove with Wrist Guard is perfect as a winter glove that's warm.

Agreed to a certain extent. I hardly see a thousand injured wrists for every head blow on the mountain, but I see your point.

Weigh the consequences of each type of injury. A wrist injury has the potential to ruin your season, a head injury has the potential to ruin your life. I'd rather take my chances with a wrist impact sans guard than a head impact sans helmet. And unless you've taken a blow to the head without a helmet recently, I'd wager you'd make the same choice as me.

And my accident prone wife wears wrist guards (Burton support), in addition to her helmet. I wore wrist guards until I developed the presence of mind to stop throwing my hands out when I fell.

Looks like you're typing just fine with your broken wrist and I'm sick of this early morning s**t. Oh yeah ... and this wrist guard thing ... if you're even thinking about busting yourself up again this season, you better just think again!!

I have been wearing a pair of gloves(forget the name) with wrist guards in them. I wont snowboard without them since I broke my wrist a few years ago and just knowing that they are there in case lets me ride harder than I would be able to without them. I guess its more a piece of mind thing for me. However they do work pretty well and are not that uncomfortable.

I wear dakine wrist guards underneath my gloves. I started wearing them after I watched my friend break his wrist last year.

I wear wrist guards also, they're more than worth it. I know a few people who decided they were too good for wrist guards, wiped out and broke their wrists. Bye-bye season pass.

Good luck healing!

I second Chino's recommendation of the Level's. I have the women's version "Level Butterfly" - the men's is "Level Fly" I believe. In addition to providing wrist protection they are seriously the warmest gloves ever. They have a steam hole on the back and even still my hands are verging on hot on even the coldest days. Fortunately the liner comes out for drying each night.

I fully sympathize with you. My friend came out with me the other day and unfortunately for her, dismissed my dire warnings about helmets and wristguards. She was in a lesson and when I went to catch up with her I had to track her down at Ski Patrol. Two full days in two separate hospitals later she also has several pins in her wrist and is out of commission. The tragic part is she actually listened to me enough to bring her rollerblading wristguards up but chose not to wear them.
