"Often overlooked, the binding is an important connection between your boots and your board. The right choice of bindings can have a dramatic effect on the performance of your set up, so choose a binding that suits your ability and matches the rest of your equipment. A stiffer binding will tranmit energy faster to your board, making them suitable for more advanced or aggressive riders. A softer bindings will be more forgiving to turn so will benefit beginners or freestyle riders looking for a softer flex for tweaks and grabs. Look for a binding that provides an almost seamless fit with your boots to ensure your riding is more efficient and your boots don’t move around."
