What Type Of Protective Pads Are Needed For Snowboarding?

Falling is a way of life with snowboarding so it is important to be protected in order to avoid injury.  All level snowboarders wear protective gear.  It is just as important for experienced boarders because they will take more risks doing jumps and tricks.  Today there are snowboard pads for everything but the most common are knee pads, elbow pads, knee pads and a helmets. 

 

 

Snowboard Helmet:  You should never attempt snowboarding without a helmet.

 

 

 

 

Wrist guards: The best method of injury protection especially for beginners.  It will help to ease the force of falls on the wrist area because of the added protection.

 

 

 

Knee pads:  Are worn between long underwear and snowboard pants help prevent knee injury.

 

 

 

 

Elbow pads: Protect the elbow area when falls occur.

 

 

 

 

 

Hip pads: Are stretchy and pull on like biker shorts.  They have extra padding in the backside to cushion falls and prevent bruises.

 

 

So remember to purchase the proper protective gear to keep safe, avoid injuries and have fun on the slopes.
