Park and Pipe safety

    Hey, i've been thinking for a while choosing between a back protector and crash shorts. I'm an expert skier (14 years experience), most of the time shredding at high speeds. Lately, i've been doing some park and pipe action and fortunately i haven't fallen yet.
    So what should i get, a back protector or a pair of crash shorts? Which are the most frequent injuries in park and pipe?

    The best solution would be both.
    I ride a lot of park and pipe, and my back protector have saved me many times.
    I have taken some hits to my hip, but nothing serious, just some soreness and bruising
