I am 32 years old and learned snowboarding this year. Needless to say I took a few tumbles. I only had to use these kneepads on three falls in particular, but one of those falls was direct downhill pressure on my knees and I barely even noticed it thanks to these pads. They are also very comfortable... almost didn't even notice them thanks to the small buckle straps. I would also suggest some good butt pads which is where I spent a lot of the first 2 days.
