Who sells burly elbow pads?

Just had a bone chip and bone spur taken out of my elbow. My current elbow pads suck and my elbow hurts like HELL. I can't find any elbow pads that are any better than the ones I already have.

I'm looking for a hard outer shell that slides off of rocks and something that won't soak up a ton of water. Something with coverage on the forearm. Something to wear on the outside of my dry top. Preferrably something designed with creek boating in mind. I see them in all the creeking videos but I can't find any.

What are they? Moto-cross pads?

Thanks for any advice.

I started using motocross elbow pads last season and really like them. I think the ones I have are from six-six-one. They don't soak up much water and provide better protection/coverage than any kayak-specific elbow pads. I initially bought them for riding my dirt bike, but now they do double-duty (damn, my biking gear smells now too!!!!!).

I might suggest that you check out some of the hockey elbow pads out there. They seem to be super burly, with major elbow protection, but maybe not so much forearm protection.

Fox makes some ones that I have used four seasons and still going strong. There is also a cup on the forearm, which is really nice for getting cozy with the wall on a slide. Ex: a bad line to the right here:

Shred Ready Tsunami's would fit the bill

I picked up a pair from cks for just over $20. They seem a little jankey compared to some burlier moto-x pads, but i've used them a few times and I think they are pretty on point for creekin.

I think mountain biking pads work the best, they are super protective and made for moving around alot. They seem to stay on better than most others for me. Check out fox and 661 and if you can find them dainese (they are expensive but are by far the best). Most of these pads dont soak up much water either. Check out www.rhythmcycles.com they usually have a pretty good selection and they are a colorado company so its cool to support them.
