Tailbone Protector
Anyone have any recommendations for a good tailbone protector that doesnít restrict movement while boarding?

I took a hard hit to my tailbone while toe-siding my first time out and itís taken a week just to start feeling almost normal again.

My girlfriend got me one after I told her that I felt like I needed to go #2 really bad after an incredibly hard fall from a small jump I tried.

I bought wrist guards too after seeing someone grabbing their wrist and screaming in the park.

With all the protection I feel like I can try some things I would never think of attempting without protection.

Protection breeds bravery.

Try DemonSnow flex force 3do. I got a pair that really saved my arse a couple days ago. Landed hard on my arse on a waterpipe rail. The only thing I hurt was my ego. They do restrict movement a little since they fit like compression shorts but rarely get in the way.

It is pretty ugly but my first 3 years I wore this. It has hard piece for tail bone. Last year I took off the hardpieces for thighs. They just velcro on. It was pretty good.

I wear Red impact shorts. They are very good and not too bulky.

As far as I can tell from research, the POC Hip VPD 2.0 shorts offer the best compromise between mobility and protection.

Thanks everyone for the suggestions. I'm going to try Azzpadz. I like that it uses straps, and the price is a bonus.

For sure... it'll definitely help me learn more quickly.
