This is the NSI Anti-Binding.

I saw this online at:
http://www.northshoreinc.com/kitetantrum.html
Here is how they described it:
:cool:
This combination of a 4Ó center section from a wakeboard base plate, with a functional deck pad built around it and an adjustable footstrap bolted to the plate, enhances rider leverage and stance. The plate allows mounting in ÒDuckÓ stance and the wide heel area of the pads offer free foot movement and ample toe area for jibing and bringing the foot into the Anti-Binding from the other side. The pad has wedge ramps at each side of the heel area, running from rail to rail. The ramps cradle the heel, fine tuning leverage as the foot moves toward the rear or front of the board.

The adjustable footstrap is bolted to the base plate at the standard 6 1/2Ó spread. The footstraps are comfortable and easy to adjust and allow for easy in and out, one and no footed moves and jibing the board in surf. The super lightweight and non constricting Anti-Bindings offers riders a unique alternative to wakeboard bindings, stance versatility and freedom of foot movement. MSR: $125.00 :-0

So has anyone tried this or a similar product? Would a product like this work good on a twin tip and/or directional board or is it best suited to wakeboards?

Word on the street is this is becoming the way to go. But I don't know which products along these lines are good. Anybody know?

i say that is too expensive for those things. i could buy the straps, and make the baseplates. they look good though. i think maybe $70 is more resonable, especially for what else is on the market right now. there is all kinds of companies making these types of bindings.
later,

They are a great idea but..
I bought a pair and they broke in half because the foam pad has no support in the heel and toe area. When they get dragged through the water by my board leash, the water pressure tears them apart. If you don't use a board leash this may not be a problem.
And I agree that they are too expensive. I now use homemade ones that work fine.

i made them on my own - the cheapest heelstrap binding i could find together with high quality footstraps - they work great! your foot is tight enough for bumb'n jump riding with a really loose feeling. and if you do some crappy air, you can easily kick the board off your feet ...
