  1. Ninja Suit + Impact Shorts?

    Snowboarding General Chat
    But in the long run...learn how to fall. Yup a person can learn how to fall, long before even seeing snow. Impact shorts ain't going to help prevent breaking wrist, arms, collar bones, fingers. Personally I think beginner snowboard lessons should start with learning how to fall...before even...
