help, how to order?
: my arm is healed! only 6 weeks before i can sk8. wont start on bowls. the dr. said these guards are best but its not US.

So you are rid of your cast now? Congratulations! That's really great!
: can anyone help me to order? i want to make sure they fit. my bf speaks french so maybe he can help. my wrist is 5 1/8th inches around.

They obviously don't send their stuff to the US. Germany is an option, so I could act as a proxy.

As important as protection wear is (by all means never skate without!) I firmly believe that proper falling technique is more important still (I know I shouldn't talk about this since my technique is under-developed at best). If you can land properly on your knee pads and slide it out. the impact on your body is the lowest possible. I even saw some inline skater doing very rad stuff and skating big ramps without any protection wear. It wasn't the case that they didn't fall at all, but they had a technique of sliding it out on their behind.
