Not fully padded?
: I just noticed, this is the only picture where you have an elbow pad on your left elbow!! Are you doing what skateboarders do, and only wearing an elbow pad on the arm you think you'll fall on? Or is it just because you want to protect only your injured wing??
: : I did this for almost 2 hours straight lol.

Oh that is my right arm actually lol. I guess I rotated the pic backwards. Yes, only put the elbow pad on my injured arm. I guess I should do both arms but never hurt myself in the rink before that needed much more then wrist guards and knee pads. But since I'm trying to unlearn putting my hands down ever, probably better to have elbows then wrist guards even. I will be the geek that goes in full armour I guess lol. I think its important for me to learn to use my pads on falls at all times so it will be natural on vert. I scrapped my knee pretty bad from falling one time since I'm used to falling on knee pads because that is ingrained.
