i was in oregon this weekend and was trying the unispins where u jump from the ground and spin the uni and land. i was wearing shorts with no shin protection on and had been working on it for like 5 minutes. then i tried again and jumped up and spun it and instead of my right foot landing on the pedal, the pedal rotated and so my shin came down on the spike and cut a long gash down it. i thought it was just a regular cut but then all this blood spilled out of it onto my shoe. so we drove to the ER in salem and i had to get 16 stitches for it.
so the lesson is: no unispins w/ out shinpads
and… any advice on light pads that protect ur legs well enough?
