Personally I use the same protective gear that I always use to ride, which is helmet, leather riding gloves, boots, and leather jacket/pants. I would strongly advise getting leathers with armor or getting some armor to go under your leathers, to protect your main high impact areas like back, hips, shoulders, knees, elbows etc. The more protection the better, especially when learning new tricks.
