Treegreen thanks, I didn't want to publicly disagree with Supra again as I wasn't trying to disrespect or get into a pissing contest with anybody here,.. but I'm glad you posted that. I've run across several people who didn't seem to be able to "get it" going heel side. They just couldn't seem to stay off their ass, but when I mentioned to them to try things like side slipping, garlands, etc. toe side?? THAT they seemed to manage!

While "Heel Side" might be the more common comfort zone for most people when starting out,.. I firmly believe that we ALL have a "Go To" side & for some,.. that's Toe side!

...as for the bindings, the Med. Cartels should arrive today! It's going to get shitty warm around here for the weekend so I'm not sure if I'll get a chance to try them on the Arbor this week! Have to wait & see how they work out on a wide board! (BTW, put my old L Cartels back on the Arbor & managed to hit a personal best speed record last weekend!)
