Yep, had no problem whatsoever before, no matter how much weight i try and put on that back foot, as soon as i start turning, the board just starts to pivot. i have my rear boot locked in against the binding. im guessing the back half of the board is just not getting enough contact with the snow and doesnt dig in, which in turn causes the spins :/

Glad to hear im not the only one! so did you have issues with spinning out as well in normal boot position against the binding? im guessing you have a massive stomp pad or something in the middle of the board to keep your foot planted? is it way harder to balance seeing as your weight is only distributed across half of the board?

Thanks for the feedback guys!!
