Travel W/ Flow Bindings?

hey all

i'm flying up to Whistler this weekend

and bought a soft board bag for the trip

my (stupid) question: do i have to fold the backs

of my flow bindings down so they don't get bashed around

down in cargo

doing so, i'd lose my settings

which would be annoying

but not as annoying as having one of them broken

thanks!

my boyfriend has flows on both his boards, and he always folds them down and resets them when we get to our desination. Your better safe than sorry.

^^^What she said. They are easy enough to get adjusted once you are on the hill. Better that than damaged gear.

my advice with regard to flow bindings is....

... do not travel with them, do not use them, do not even buy them.

but if you must do any of the above things, then hide them for fear of small children and homeless people laughing at you.

live happy; buy cartels!

Just coz you don't understand it
Doesn't mean it makes no sense!

A little White out on the Ladder setting will get you back to where you want the sets to be. If you are cranky about looks, the white-out will just scrape off, then. If you have the white ones, use a little black wet-erase marker.

Nah, I don't blame my tools at all. I don't buy cheap, crappy tools like Burton...

i should think most people would disagree that burton were 'cheap' and from experience, i am happy to say that for me, they have also been 'crap' free as well.

i think you are just sulking. you are a bad, bad worker

Well when you follow the herd, you don't know the difference. Funny, I never saw you as a conformist...
