Fair enough, it was a dumb comment I made. Don't stay home, go snowboarding.

I still personally feel that knee, elbow, and spine pads, along with padded shorts especially, are unnecessary for most people. And no matter how you want to justify your wearing them (kids, mortgage, job whatever, I have all that shit too-not kids though) they are still sort of pussyish.

Like you said "fair enough"
We can disagree as to which side of the safety gear debate we are on.
I don't see why it makes it "pussyish" though. Pro's have foam pits and million dollar training facilities, many of us learn by hard knocks. Why cut our already short season shorter from an injury I can prevent.

If by chance we met up and rode, I may not be the best but I can drink beer with the best of them and keep up in the park or jumps to a point only been riding 3 years. I don't see how this makes me or anyone else "pussyish"

Again we will just be on opposite ends on this debate and again for the OP'er get what makes you comfortable and grow to be a better rider. You dont always need to wear them. It's nice to have them in the gear tote and a short walk to the car if I change my mind

Are you asking me to go riding with you? Cause I totally would but I'm not wearing any fucking stormtrooper armor to go do it. I think it's pussyish. Do what you want though. I'll probably make fun of you when you're suiting up but that would be the extent of it. I'm not gonna tell someone what to do.

I need to support the family and make the mortgage. A little more protection until I'm comfortable with the new trick or every time I ride. It's a small price to pay to have fun and still be able to meet my family obligations.

As most attitudes of snowboards seem to be F'in do, wear, be who you are. Ignore the people with the mind set of "God-fucking-damn, just stay home" gear up and go have fun. Most people don't even know I'm wearing impact shorts and I don't care if they do. It doesn't hurt as much when I crash, I'm learning new park tricks safely and having a blast riding with my teenage sons.

McBee makes a low profile knee pad for football that is pretty comfortable
hey what brand of crash pants are you using?

I wear volleyball knee pads every time I'm boarding. Not only do they help in a bail they are simply comfortable when I have to kneel in the snow (AKA ice sheet locally). I wish I could find some soft shell knee/shine pads since I want my shin covered for jibbing. This is why. My friend clipped on the way up for a front lipslide. That shot his shin into the rail. It started off looking no different then any other shin bash.

I have Azzpadz and Skeletools I actually prefer the Azzpadz. Easier to take off if I don't need them little more comfortable and work great
Frozen if we do ride I'll buy the first round and gear up early so I won't embarrass you :')

You know, you don't need pussy ass goggles or pussy ass gloves or waterproof shit to snowboard either.

Layer up in some fucking sweatpants, your dad's old motorcycle jacket, and some sunglasses and go ride.

I can't believe all these babies careening around the mountain wearing dayglo tracksuits. They look like power rangers.

Ah, I guess they can do what they want, though... and i will just make fun of them as they squeeze into their metrosexual spandex base layers and stupid $7 polyester socks.

I just don't get it....

Read on another forum: "If someone held a gun to my head and said, "You have to move to Salida tomorrow", I'd probably do it. If they told me I had to go to Breckenridge instead, I think I'd just let them pull the trigger."

Ok I figured I was gonna get my dick kicked off for this but I still think safety gear is pussy-assed. And I understand how funny your irony is but I still think safety shorts are stupid. Feel free to disagree with me. And I have no problem with the people that wear them outside of I think they're sort of pussy assed. But not pussy assed enough that i wouldn't hang out with them.
