This ever happen to anyone before? I've been riding Flow bindings for 10 years and have never had one pop open. It really 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?
had that happen with my Fives, but only one foot. Problem is that you're sliding head-first on your back, and the clips on the back of the highback get dragged open by the snow. You might need to get just a bit more tension on your cables.

Coffee is your friend. Everyone else is an acquaintance.
