I just use the Pro-Tec IPS hip pads that's sold in many Vancouver board shops and it's ok. It's pretty thickly padded that slight falls or slips can be easily cushioned by the foam enough to be unnoticeable, but any hard falls, you will feel in your bones. These pads got me through my beginner stages of snowboarding without any significant rear bruising, on ice no less.
they add a lot of material to your ass and thighs though, so regular fit pants don't fit too well with them. have to go loose fit.
