Flow Bindings for Beginners?
 
We're looking for people's opinion on flow bindings. What do folks here think about flow bindings for beginning snowboarders? What are the pros and cons (if any)?

They should start with straps imo. Flows are nice and easy to use, but you need some basic skills first. After they've got 10-20 days under their belt then that would be up to that person if they want to try them or not.

What does a strap-in binding give you that the Flow design doesn't that helps a beginner?

Quick, basic, and easy strap-ins.

I have had all three types of bindings. I had toe straps toe caps and flows. Flows FTW. I had them last year and all I heard from people was that toe caps were so much better...... wrong. The flows are amazing. I meant he feel of them is great. They are durrable, the only thing is that they are not that much faster than a reg binding. Go for the gusto.

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.

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.

Yeah, Flows FTW. Straps are nice, but I like da Flows.
