||That is interesting that you ride goofy but skate regular. It means that when you get back on the mountain you will be a beast at riding switch. I've been skating every day this week.

||Playing soccer on the weekends now that it's spring and skateboarding during the middle of the week. My legs are dead.

|| I can barely handle 3 hour classes. I would die in a 4 hour class. what subject?

||I mean he's about the same height as Chris Paul I think (6 foot). But I think he won't be trying any through the legs passes in the NBA. It seemed like those never worked and inappropriate for a championship game. Regardless, he's a great player and I hope he does well in the NBA.

|| Did you see that dunk by Young? He powered through those two UConn players. That was a good game. It seemed like there was a lot of tension between the Uconn guards. It looked like they were arguing a lot.

||Was raining non stop today. Hopefully it's over by now. Get to sleep in tomorrow....yay

||^^ The best is falling asleep while the rain hits the window. That knocks me out instantly.

||Haven't seen any April Fools jokes yet. I will have to think of one.

||I sleep in sometimes because I know in the future I may not have that opportunity later.

|| that may have been it. but when I looked at the ankle straps for each binding I noticed the broken one was missing a spring. So the buckle system was not connecting to the grooves in the ladder at all. But it was more of desperate times called for desperate measures haha. we wanted to get back on the mountain quick.

|| Well what happened was I was out in CO and it was a fresh powder day, trying to get first tracks. my buddy and I got off the lift and found out my back binding ankle strap was strapping in. So we had the chairlift of shame back to the bottom. We took it to a shop and a guy replaced the buckle with one that didn't go with the binding. It straps in, but occasionally if it's not at the right angle it slips up a few notches while I'm riding, so I'm afraid to hit big kickers. I think you're right. I don't want to keep buying replacement parts. I just want a fresh new set of bindings. it's more of whether I want backdoor bindings or not if I'm riding park mostly

||^^Thanks for that, I'll have to email Rome and find out if I can get a new buckle. although the bindings may be too old. I'll keep it in mind next time. ^Yeah I'm starting to lean more towards unions just for conventional reasons. I've never really heard many bad opinions on Unions

||Well I have Rome 390s right now. They are good, but one of the ratchets had to be replaced. It lost one of the springs, and I had to quick fix it by replacing the entire ratchet. Since then it hasn't worked right. I figured the Gnu bindings might be less prone to breakage because there are less springs, less moving parts, and just the cable in the back. My friend let me try the GNU's and they felt secure. But I rode powder and didn't ride any park. I would go with the flow's but I'm on a budget and I don't like how the lower end bindings have one big strap over the foot. I appreciate all the opinions, and shared experiences. I'm thinking I'll either go with the GNU's or get a pair of Unions.

||^^Pretty soon they won't let players dance in the end zone.
