So last weekend i went up riding to my local hill for the day. When i took a break to go in and eat someone actually took the time to steal my snowboard leash... I mean i really don't give a shit about it cause they cost next to nothing but i mean seriously who steals a snowboard leash. Also just thought i would say that i know it didn't fall off because i took the time to make sure that even if it did fall off either my binding or my boot it still would have been hooked on and just flopping around on the other one. Well the point of this whole thread was to ask if this has ever happened to anyone else?
Some places wont let you on the lifts if you dont have a leash. A dumb rule but one thats there nonetheless.
I still use a leash just because thats what I was told to do from the start and it is really at no inconvenience to you. I get rid of it on epic powder days tho cause when you get buried and need to unclip it is a fucking prick of a thing to get off.
I dunno, sometimes it's a good idea to have a leash just for a backup in case your bindings go in a freak accident. I'd rather look like a gaper than hurt somebody if my bindings fail.
True, I bailed hard once last season and my back foot came out of my binding. How, I have no idea because nothing broke, but still, a leash wouldn't be a bad idea. I also would hate to have to walk halfway down the mountain if I lost my board in another one of these freak accidents
