shin protection

So I'm basically getting back into riding street/park/jump after a long hiatus. And I'm re-learning and learning new stuff and I do fall or slip a pedal a little bit. So can anybody recommend some good shin protection? Its just more fun not to feel the pain and just keep riding, instead of whining about it...

I have some old XS shinguards that i never wear, but when i have they are great.

I'm sure the Fuse one's are good. At least they get alot of hype.

I'd go with 661 or the Pryme shin and knee guard.

Maybe he doesn't feel like having bruises all over his shins.

If you're just getting bruises then your pedals suck.

Real pedals make you bleed...
