    Highly recommend this short film for all mountain action. Sick soundtrack (the Dire Straits track had me tingling through the headphones). Not too long at 20 minutes.

    Post anything you like snowboard related. New gear, split stuff, whatever. Pretty frothing for 2021 already given 2020 was my first season where I didn't snowboard since 1994!

    Without doing more research I'm guessing the boots would be quite stiff to compensate for no straps?

    I reckon I'll try the 'Prime Quiver-Connectors' down the track: https://www.splitboardbindings.com/technology-17/the-prime-system-17/

    As well as only needing 1 set of bindings I can see quiver transportation benefits as well (kind of like modern surfing fin systems). Dreaming of resort sessions and then quickly grabbing the split when the boy gets tired and popping out the back.

    These resort-cruise-follow vids seem to be a thing. Skate part inspired. This one is pretty cool and only 5 minutes.

    I have a 100cm Chopper waiting in the wings, and managed to pick up the Youth size grom bindings for under $100 recently. My boy turns 5 in March, and this will replace his After School Special - hopefully feeding the stoke for the season ahead. :D

    I'm definitely getting some inspiration from this crew
