    Powsurfing, Bindingless Snowboarding...

    Hi All,

    Anyone planning to ride some bindingless Powsurfers this season?
    ...old or new pow addicts?

    I am definitely looking forward to some sweet, deep powdery days.

    I’d have to agree that when the conditions allow and you can ‘drop the leash’ nothing beats a sweet NoBoard run.

    Good technique is synonymous with good style. No style , no shred .

    There are a few of us here. We've got a couple of Grassroots boards to choose from. Beats the fuck out of meadow skipping on an elevated avy day

    This is the last no board run I did a few years back. The mountain is called Fishes Breath. 3000' wall of pow.
    (or so we hoped)



    The approach on snow shoe is so weird because I'm used to skinning.



    Getting closer. It took about three hours to the top



    Nice lunch at the top, my buddy Thom with backside of Ragged Top in background



    Getting ready to drop in!



    Still frame from Go Pro but you can see the run to the valley. Wind blown and pretty challenging up high.



    You know what is a very bad feeling? Crashing on a god damned no board on the side of a giant face and just standing there on two feet, no skis. Serious handicap , no bueno



    Good snow down low, horrible slog back to the truck under huge terrain trap at heat of the day.

    Nice, great to see a few have decided to "freed-the-bind." I have evolved over the past decade or so until now where about 60%-70% of my backcountry riding is on Powsurfer - as long as the season has good enough snow . I just ordered a Grassroots Splitsurfer, so that number may go up this season.
