I've never used wrist guards. I just try to keep things together when I'm going down. So far so good. But glad to hear you are going to be back riding.

Don't go where the road leads, rather go where this is no road and make a trail.

Same here, but figured added protection would not hurt. I am good so far without them as well.

OP, what exactly happened while you were snowboarding that caused you to break your wrist?

I was turning and I fell backwards and put my arms out to catch me... i had read 100 times not to put ur arms out when you fall - but u now what? when your learning and u fall your instincts kick and you are on your ass before you have time to remember to pull your arms in - at least thats what happened to me.

Haha

Yeah when you are going down no matter what you are thinking most likely going to put your arms out. I speak from experience. Broken radius and ulna (3 times) as of 1-21-10. But I still ride with my cast. My advice is wear guards because wearing a cast is way more uncomfortable than wearing guards. (you will fall eventually)

Thanks - that was my thought. I was gonna pick up guards this weekend as i get the cast off on thursday I wont make it out probably till mid next week, but want to have them so i can just go. That and after 6 weeks with a broken radius my hubby wants me to get full armour so he doesn't have to work so hard around the house hahaha
