Dawna Beresford takes a hit at the Jettribe IJSBA West Coast Series in Lake Perris, California and lets us know how he brand new leg guard helped to prevent injury: "Thank you to JetTribe for making an awesome product. This past weekend while racing at Lake Perris I had just picked up JetTribes' Shock Leg Guards, The Shock Leg Guard's have both leg and knee protection and at first I had been a bit apprehensive thinking they would hinder my movement as they look like something a baseball catcher would wear but, after borrowing my husbands, I found out they not only are light weight, they don't soak up water and when I get low in the tray on high speed corners my knees don't feel a thing. Nothing is worse then worrying about your own riding style when the water is choppy. In the first moto of my first race this past weekend, putting on the guards strait out of the bag 5 minutes before getting on the line- I had no idea they were about to be tested. Around the first corner at close to 70 mph I was taken off my ski by another ski, and went tumbling through the water. I felt the hit, and later saw where my ski was hit, once with me on it and once after I was off. The most damage was right where my leg was, the boat will require some fiberglass work and some plastic work up by my handlebars, my forearm still has massive bruising a week later, but my leg has only a small bruise where it got shoved into the seat, the side it was hit on- not a mark otherwise- the impact shifted the leg guard a little bit and only had a left a little scuff, it did its job. I got second in the world last year in women's runabout, and this year at the IJSBA World Finals I will be wearing my JetTribe leg guards for every practice and race I do. As a long time racer in both men's and women's classes I can tell you its not he first time I've been hit, in 23 years of racing I have had my share of being hit still have a nice - protective gear is always a must and protective gear that lets you ride your way is even better."
