|killclimbz||^^^My thoughts on Flows for beginners exactly. Most beginners are going to want to sit to get into their bindings. Not as easy with Flows.|

i took a friend out his first time this year & rented a board from a local shop. they hooked him up with flow bindings & he did have a bit of trouble getting his boot all the way in, to be able to snap up. i think it probably would have been easier for him with straps.
plus, for beginners, it's usually easier for them to stay on their heel edge at first, which flow bindings make you be on your toe edge to snap in. so they've gotta do that silly spin around thing, making them look like a fish in the snow.

IMO Flows are just about the biggest pieces of crap on the market. I've owned 2 pairs and both have broken within 3 or 4 weeks of use. And if you have to unstrap for any reason on steep terrain, or powder, you're screwed and have to come up with creative body positioning to strap back in.

|duckie||this is my first year learning, and have my own gear with flow bindings. i don't think that it makes it easier or more difficult for me personally. although sometimes i do find difficulty strapping in, which is what flow were meant to minimize. overall, i do enjoy using flows.|

|BiggerThanYours||i second that, flows can take some finesse to get right at first. They may be a little difficult for a 1st timer to figure out on their own.|
