I don't get it. Is strap in speed a thing people aim for?
It takes maybe 10 seconds to strap in once you get the hang of it, why the big race?
No, but it's just cool to be able to strap in almost just as fast with regular bindings as some one with speed-entry bindings.
It helps because if your friends are skiers or have speed-entry, they don't have to wait around for you. That was my situation, and it used to suck for me until I figured this method out. Now they don't have to wait. Any snowboarder in that kind of situation is really who this thread is aimed at.
