If you don't like the kneepads look, or just want hip protection football pads might be worth looking into.

RE: Do certain shoes help riding?
Boots are the most overlooked item IMO when looking at riding accessories.
These plus Superfeet inserts are the most comfortable shoes I've ever owned, and they LOCK you in to your board. They're urban motorcycle boots... Stylmartin has a few styles to choose from. Take a look around!
RE: New guy - questions about safety/equipment
@acecannon I think you mean "Speed and Strength"?
This is the jacket I ride in. I totally recommend it! The hoodie zips out and is comfy to wear around the house. The jacket is nice and doesn't show pads at all... I took the spine one out, but the shoulder and elbow ones are super nice! It also has a CC holster if you pack a sidearm. I have a sig sp2022 and it zips closed over the pinky rest on the magazine, but not by much. I don't like how if you have the hoodie zipped in, you have to unzip it partway to expose the holster, but that's not a deal-breaker. I also just got Chester Shoes and they make such the difference! I feel so locked into the board it's amazing!!!
I know I'm going to push it, and eating shit isn't a matter of if, but when. I want to protect as much of me as I can. I invest in equipment because I want to ride more, heal less. Ultimately it's your life/time. You can spend it how you like. ;-)
