Interesting that the terrain-park injuries tend to be upper-extremity (ARM to the rest of us). I would have thought back, butt, and upper leg.

Generally speaking in snowboarding, the upper body has more injuries than the lower body. Just the opposite for skiing. Of course if you do it just right, you can wreck just about anything with either sport...

Interesting, I don't know if I've ever hurt any of my upper body, it's always my ass and hips. It must help to have the physique of a short, stocky german mountaineer .

Speaking of which, anyone normally use armor clothing like spine protectors, tailbone protectors, hip pads, etc? think it's worth getting?

I use a helmet, Demon Shield hardtail shorts, and Burton impact gloves for the wrists.

A helmet is always a good idea. I hardly ever take bad falls, but the times I have it's usually involved a backward headplant, which having a helmet on has removed alott of unnecessary pain.

I think if your hitting the park, jumps, and other high probability of an injury stuff wearing pads might be a good idea as well. My biggest thing is the shortness of my recovery, I want the downtime to be as little as possible. Nothing like a serious injury to kill your entire season.

I guess you could say I'm a gradual progressor, I would rather work my way up slowly rather then try something that's out of my league and eat shit.

I haul ass through tree farms that would scare the shit out of most people, but I've gotten to that point gradually without ever getting seriously injured.
