Wrist guards :)
 
I have to say till this day i still wear them just for the fact for protection and they also keep my hands warm :). Had some bozo cracking jokes about them at the top of a park run, only for him to eat it off the first jump and break both wrists, lets just say i suggested he should use some next time :)

Hard to laugh at an idot like that in that circumstance, but if you did I can't blame you.
You can't even see my guards under my gloves, not a biggy but how did he know you had them, and why did he even care...
Some people are just tools http://www.freesmileys.org/smileys/smiley-taunt001.gif

I wear mine proudly. Have yet to run across any tools like that in my very short riding time. Maybe because I'm a dad, who knows. All the people I have met have been decent and often comment how cool it is I ride with my kids. Not that I have Azzpadz, helmet and wrist guards on.

The guy really crashed and broke both wrists after making fun of you, your not pulling our leg??? Like said before, Karma...

Level Super Pipe Pro protective gloves are unbeatable.

My second time EVER snowboarding, I was even in a lesson, I broke my wrist. Both my radius and ulnar styloid snapped. I recall saying that morning that I wasn't going to take my wrist guards because I didn't like fighting with them to get my gloves on over it... I will always and forever wear wrist guards. Asking your then new boyfriend to help you shave because you are in a cast up to your shoulder is motivation enough...

Here's pictures for emphasis! :)

Wrists aren't supposed to look like this, in case you weren't sure:

Not sure why I'm smiling, as Breckenridge doesn't offer any kind of pain management...but look at those sausage fingers!

Thanks for the warning on your gross ass wrist. http://forums.entensity.net/images/s.../crunkpuke.gif






To be honest though, wearing wrist guards (depending on the style) a lot of times just applies the all of the pressure of the fall into one spot which will cause a break higher up in your arm.

Right? And you're welcome! :D

I would much rather the break to be higher up. The wrist is a nasty place to break, and I can no longer supinate the full range of motion, so even minor things, like holding my baby, can tweak it just enough to make it swell for a few days...the original injury was 6 years ago...
