I've seen idiots set their snowboards on the ground(base side down)on a slight incline and then turn away for a minute to talk to their buddy while their board slowly accelerates down the hill out of control.

Long story short if you have to set your board down without your foot in one of the bindings put it on the ground bindings facing down!

They are a pain, but I made a practical one called board-walker, which you can use with gloves

how about no thanks, nobody likes leashes and we certainly dont need to drag out boards behind us like its a dog. it really does not take any effort to carry a board and i would rather not have people kicking it or tripping on it as i gets dragged behind me. please dont try to sell us that stupid product. thanks

If you don't like the way I drive, stay off the sidewalk.

What a ground-breaking product!!!

It's not like I didn't do the EXACT same thing with my K2 HC 156, back in 1992... with the factory-provided leash.

edit: damn, just realized it was 20 years ago....

All the local resorts around me used to enforce snowboard leashes like 10 years ago but have all stopped since snowboarding picked up the esteem it has today. With that said, I still own like 5+ leashes because if I showed up without one, I had to go into the proshop and buy one before I was allowed to go up the lift (and they seemed to check more for leashes than actual passes).
not against your argument but when a ski pops off the two little spikes pop out of the bottom and slow the ski down to a stop. A snowboard does not have such a thing so that is why some places require them. They are not against snowboarders just watching out for safety. I hate leashes too though so i don't wear one anymore.

Current Setup:
Rossignol Scope Traditional Camber (2007)
Burton Freestyle Bindings (2007)
Burton Freestyle Boots (Brown)
