Woops, forgot shoe size! I'm a size 12 shoe.

Maybe I have too much board for me to start!

Ok. So maybe I'm just worrying too much about the issue of bindings, maybe there is no issue. I just see myself having problems sitting on snow, bending over to do the bindings and getting back up. Problem is, not many things are "easy" for me. My back just doesn't move like other peoples, I have spina bifida occulta that was aggravated by a bad car accident.

Of course the thought that comes to mind is why even try? I'm tired of accepting limitations. I'm not going to do it anymore, I loved snowboard so I'm going to snowboard. I'm just trying to make it as easy for my body as I can to maximize enjoyment.

Thanks all!
By all means you should keep at it. I applaud your attitude despite your injury.

All I meant is that rear-entry isn't that much easier than straps. Either way, if you get into your bindings standing up (which is doable and sounds like a necessity for you), you'll still have to either squat or bend over to secure the bindings to your boots. At least with Flows you don't have to sit on the snow.

Flow's active strap technology ("NASTY") is supposed to make things even faster. Take a look at the NX2 series.
