Hey guys

 

At the end of the month I am importing a thing called a freebord,it looks like a skateboard but you can carve like on a snowboard. 15 second video of it in action can be found here

 

I am looking for protective gear like Elbow and shin pads as well as a BMX Helmets. I really don't mind whether they are for skateboarding or for MTBing I am just wanting to find out where I can buy protective gear from.

 

Where locally can I buy this gear and how much is it? Should I rather buy the protective gear from CRC and add the customs tax onto it? The only problem is the high custom duties on protective gear :(

 

Any help well be appreciated ;)

You are so going to see your arse on that thing B)

Ye I know :D hence the reason I want to buy all the protective gear now before I order it :)

 

If I cant get any,I am going to have some nice war scares :P and no movement for a few weeks :(

Just get yourself some proper skate pads. And some nice thick leather gardening/welding gloves. Skate pads have a lot more padding and security. I know i used to race downhill(sk8). You pretty much learn that everytime you fall, just land on your knees first. The pads, esp the vert ramp style ones are so solid and padded that you dont hurt at all, and will slide down the hill. Usually into the curb, but thats ok.

They got some stuff in already but I read they bringing more in. Have a search on the hub or drop CWC a mail and tell them what u want , they said it should be here in a week or 2 :o

If you ever in Cpt, Action Cycles stocks a few items, but Recycle in Bellville had quite a few items, bought my wife's TLD kneepads there.

Very reasonably priced.
