Binding are important because they're the bridge between you and your snowboard, transferring your skills and movements into your snowboard. Getting the right pair of bindings will enhance your snowboarding and help you stay comfortable and safe.
I finally came around to buying Flow bindings after trying a few different types. I just love their convenience on the mountain! I actually thought clip-ins many years ago were super frustrating once they got caked with ice (as will always happen). I also like that Flow bindings don't restrict you to a certain boot.
