With no toe side comfort the occasional snowboarder only turns on their heal edge or will do the "turbo leaf" bombing down a steep run on nothing but their heal edge.
Sad to watch as they scrape all of the snow off the good runs!
oh my god, every time I see someone riding like that i want to go over there, slap them in the face, and give them a lesson for free just so they learn how to do it right and quit self grooming the runs.
