Your a Flow binding expert when....
I got out today with both my kids. Dr released oldest to ride in his new cast, so we took one of our planned trips to a bigger hill 1 1/2 hours away. Who knows how long the snow will last so we decided to hit it up.
I was coming off the lift and kicking in, when I saw a fellow Flow binding rider, sitting in the snow putting on his bindings. I asked, kindly & jokingly, why you sitting to put on flows??? He replied that is the only way he can get his foot in. I'm like "that's not right". He told me this was his 2nd time out and was having trouble getting into the bindings and something else about an instructor telling him to sit to put them on
I asked if he would mind if I helped him as I have set-up several pairs many times. He said "please... that would be great" He didn't know how the ratchets worked and he had the I-strap way to tight. I got him all fixed up right there on the hill and he was able to kick in and go.
Thanking me, and me saying have a safe day riding, we rode our separate ways. Felt good to help a fellow rider enjoy his equipment and time on the hill. Not that it matters, but he was a rider about my age and new to the sport.
