RidiculousGet Slytech, i have their crash pants and they seem to work pretty well.
Also watch this:
dskid1234I've seen that vid before. It's good, but I think I'll just get better at crashing over time and hopefully just crash a lot less as I progress. I considered slytech, but I would want to get upper and lower protection from the same company. Aside from their back protection, it seems that there full upper jackets are geared toward racing, not freestyle.
RidiculousYou don't really need a full protection kit, just get a back protector and crash pants, and don't send it to hard.
You'll be fine.
IsitWinterYet17Any other suggestions for pads by people? I had the same dilemma of getting wrecked in the park. So much that I completely gave up on rails to save my body for skiing. I stuck with jumps, but even those can suck if you take a hard fall. Haven't entered the park in 2 years....sad.
Looking to get some padded shorts or pants and hit up the park a lot this year. I'd say my hips and outer butt cheeks are what got trashed the most. I know they won't prevent everything from hurting, but sure has to be better than nothing.
