Argo I ride with my foot jammed against the rear binding usually. Rope is around my waist and the tbar is under my front arm. Just lean back, relax and enjoy the ride.

Well, I finally got to the snow again. This time I tried my rear foot in various positions and didn't notice a difference with any of them while riding the T-Bar. I did however notice that my foot kept wanting to go to the rear binding...but that is probably just habbit...

Grip tape doesn't work very good, that's what I put on my no-board & snow sticks to it like velcro.

Those little sticky spikes are the second best thing, besides holding it like a tow rope. It turns the dreaded rope tow, into the fun rope tow.

fattrav If im riding with the tee between my legs, my rear foot goes at either the front of my rear binding or right up by my front foot. If im riding when the tee on the back of my hip, my foot goes infront of the rear binding. I use a couple of stomp dots in both places as the slush can stick to the underside of your boots and make the top sheet fairly slippery.

timmytard The problem is, your sticking the bar through your legs.

Ya got to hold it like your being towed behind a boat.

Then your foot goes where it always does, right in front of your back binding.

Then you can carve back & forth, practice your one footers.

It's way better!!

eXc Thanks for the replies so far.

I have always had a stomp at the rear binding, but when i have tried to use the middle with no stomp, i can't get any grip whatsoever.

But...lets not turn this into a stomp debate!

Yep, sign me up for some grip on my topsheet.
