Awesome way to spend your 21st! I'm glad you finally got a chance to ride. And yes, not only do they make impact shorts, but they also make full on asspadz. These things are hilarious and if you are wearing one it looks like you are wearing a diaper..but after I bruised my tailbone, and continued to fall on my ass (and had a hematoma the size of a large plum)
I did use one.
Keep it up! The dreams of snowboarding will start soon, if they haven't already...
Every turn is a blessing.
