|snowvols||Happened to me once and just rode it down the mountain with the back foot out holding onto the bindings. Much safer than sitting on your snowboard and riding it down. I have seen too many boards run away from people doing that.|

|wrathfuldeity||Happend once, bombing a small cliff, didn't see the windlip at the bottom til just before hitting/launching. Managed to get my nose up so as not to dig in but torqued the board enough that the rear binding popped on takeoff...my only time flying 1 footy...screws still firmly in the board but the disc was toast.|

|freshy||Man that happened to my buddy buy way worse. It was a slushy spring day and we were bombing down a run lined with trees so it was shady, when we got to the part where the sun was shining on the snow it just griped his board to a dead stop both bindings ripped out the board and he kept going doing full speed cartwheels with no hands. When I got to him he was knocked out cold, scary times. He was fine as in he dident break his neck or any bones, just a concussion.|

Did the bindings pull out the inserts or where they just loose? My bindings are starting to show a bit of wear so i make it a point to check them before i go ride. After about 3-4 days of hard riding my bindings start to loosen up a bit and will wiggle a bit. My hill has screwdrivers and stuff at the top and bottom of most lifts so when i notice it i just fix it.
I did had something sorta similar happen once on at the end of a park run. Right after i came over a roller my rear binding decided to rotate like 20 degrees but was still attached... Luckily it was only a short ride to the lift so i made it down but it was super awkward lol. Just be glad you weren't going any faster or you really could have got fucked.
