Burton EST/The Chanel help?
First of all, please no 'Burton' hate, If you don't like them, that's your opinion but please don't start telling me to go buy new stuff because that really isn't an option, and I'm happy with the Burton company.
Moving on, I have the 2011 Burton Hero (152 I believe), I love the board, it doesn't have the sick graphics or fancy edges, but it rides like a charm. Normally...
Being an EST/Channel board (whatever you want to call it), I have 2011 Burton Lexa EST bindings.
So a mens board with women's bindings (IDK if this is relevant, I am female).
Nearer the end of last season, we had quite a bit of ice (it was a bad winter for us eastern Canadians, lots of rain). My screws were constantly coming loose and ice was clogging up and actually forming underneath the bindings! Its even stained the board with dirty ice (which is an awful shame).
Is this fixable? Do I need to do the screws up even tighter? I was experimenting with my stance a lot last year so granted the bindings were moved a lot. But its horrible arriving at the top of the hill to find your binding loose. Clearing the lift is a great challenge. I've even taken to carrying a tiny screwdriver in my pocket, which poses a hazard if I fall.
Do you guys have any suggestions as to what I can do to fix this? Preferably while keeping the same gear? Was I doing something wrong?
Most conditions I couldn't understand at all about the ice build up.
Sorry if this went on a bit, or if it was in the wrong section of the forum. I haven't been around in a while...
Thanks in advance,
