Default Snapping Out of Bindings

Just purchased the NX2-AT's. Rode them for two days in Squaw Valley in Tahoe (thanking CA for giving us good early snow). I actually really liked them and recommend them. For frame of reference, it's my third Flow binding. I have a size 13 boot and was riding on a 162 board (little small).

What caught me off-guard is I was riding pretty hard, caught an edge, and ended up sliding down a steep hill on my back, board facing top of the mountain. When I stopped sliding I tried to get acrobatic and do a reverse somersault back to my toe side (stupid idea, but I've done it before). Thing is, both bindings popped and my board flew off mid roll. This ever happen to anyone before? I've been riding Flow bindings for 10 years and have never had one pop open. It really sucked...my buddy was 75 yards below and saved the board but nevertheless. I'm pretty sure the bindings popped from the reverse somersault and not the fall.

Thoughts? Freak accident? Time to get a board leash? Glaw in the bindings?
