At first I felt like such a dork wearing all that crap but it's really saved me. Especially trying to throw much bigger moves with corks.
Long story short I'd recommend wrist guards as well as everything else I just mentioned
How do you like the back protector??? I'm not doing nearly what you do, but I have thought about it. I don't think I have hit where it would help but not sure.
Since I want to learn boardslides on a rail I thought this would be a good piece of equipment. Especially if I go down back 1st on the rail.

My wife broke her thumb at the base joint two weeks ago ...right where her wrist guard ends. I think I'd rather break my thumb than my wrist. I've fallen more times than my ego will allow me to recall ...always with wrist guards and helmet...no injuries.

Fingers are a weakest point. I try to ride with fists closed when I can remeber.

We'll since we're having a dork competition, I'll have to contribute to the pad-off.

Besides, your standard helment...









It's a pretty good idea I guess, and is reccomended by SA Nev Lapwood when "pushing the edge".

I have Level gloves with Wrist guard and I always wear a helmet (plus it keeps my head real warm). I don't care what anyone says. Even if wearing all that gear above, it's better than the alternative. Getting brain damage and breaking bones isn't "cool", ever. Although... I don't think any of that gear above would have helped my broken shoulder at the end of the season last year.

I was in the terrain park all day and got really tired and decided to try a really tweaked out method for my last run. I got too excited and I must have tried to do it before I left the lip. It's funny to say that now... I was so tired I hadn't even strapped in my toe cap on my back foot! Anyhow, I was sideways in the air and landed on my side and my arm popped out of the socket, and when it snapped back in, my humorous impacted with the socket and created an impact fracture.

Details on the site, but you get an option for 6 months free subscription if you buy the vids, and you can cancel the sub at the end of the six months if you don't think it's worth it. I personally will keep it.

Yep, that's right Donutz! You can cancel at anytime during the 6 month trial period at absolutely no cost.

Actually I'm wearing exactly the same body armor (Fox Titan), a helmet, level super pipe pro gloves and dainese action shorts. So please call me Bruce during daytime, you know what I'm called at night
