I’m hoping you guys can help me decide which pads I should buy for knee/leg protection. I’ve narrowed down my search to these two items due to their price and ability to put on and take off easily, but I can’t decide which one would be better for esk8 applications. I feel like knee pads are tried and true for coming off the board in a somewhat controlled, straight-on situation where you can slide out a fall. But I feel like with Esk8, it’s more likely that we get bucked or tossed off unexpectedly, and I see myself more likely to end up not just on my knees, but also on my shins, so maybe the knee/shin guards are a better choice? I’m curious to hear opinions and experience that you all may have.
