|: But I'm doing the big kids ramp now, dropping in! I'm stoked beyond belief!! FANTASTIC day!!!!!!
: Now it will be easy for me to roll into the bowls. Do those hit harder then wood/rubber? Or not cause you slide so easily??
You will be glad that you have your hip pads in the bowl. If you slam on concrete, it can be very painful. It won't be a problem any more when you have learned the proper bailing technique and you falls are under control. Then you just slide on your knee caps which should be very easy (provided that the concrete is as smooth as it should be).
