New guy - questions about safety/equipment
I preordered the XR and am super excited!! I do have some questions about learning to ride though.
A bit about me, I've been surfing and snowboarding since the 90s, used to skate some, so decent balance. Crashed plenty of times in those endeavors (when younger).
I'm 40 now, so the body bag doesn't bounce like it used to, and it would be a major inconvenience to break a bone.
I'm for sure getting a helmet. Would it be worth it to get wrist guards while I learn the board? anything else? I do plan to start off slow, but the goal is to get to where I can commute on the board.
Oh yes, what helmets are people using for around town kind of stuff?
