I kinda feel like I can do everything better if I'm not constantly having to scrunch up or extend my toes.
But your getting off topic

The situation I got into, it really did not matter what I had, boot, binding or joint. I would have lost the board.
It was all down to poor decision making on my part. an expensive lesson learnt.
Only two riders
light wind day.
The old last run before the wind dies! ( we've all done it)
Went too far out
Took a long time to re-launch
I don't use a leash.
Board got away from me whilst trying to re-launch
all this added up to a very sad day
