    The one day I decided to warm up and not wear knee pads was the day I couldn't return an x-up flying out on a 6 foot box jump. Busted my meniscus and had to go through an arthroscopy to clean up the dead tissue, just when I thought I was done, they found out my ACL was torn dead and had to cut it off, I will be going through ACL reconstruction in a month or so. If I had only worn knee pads to keep my knee from bending over sideways...

    never felt right w/ a helmet.. it feels like im preparing for something really bad to happen...but i guess its kinda doing part of its job... preparing for the worst, its a buzz killer for me. pads on the other hand, ill wear if i know ill be at the park most the time, and gloves are yes, just preference... i wear them sometimes, but when it gets hot and my hands start to get sweaty, the gloves go on
