Re: Board footstraps. Track vs screw ins

Thanks for input

Lots of stuff I had not thought about

In some brands I’ll be forced to switch to tracks (north) and wondered if I should change brands or go w flow.

I guess based on your info if price of board w straps is right, it doesn’t matter.

Thanks

Re: Board advise, 2017: North Xride vs Naish Monarch

These boards are 2017 and are less than $600

Core prices are crazy high, I’ll wait for Euro to drop by 1/2

Board footstraps. Track vs screw ins

As I do my holiday shopping for a new board, some companies are going to tracks and some are staying with screw ins

Any experiences, preferences?

Are tracks solid? Do they slip and loosen as you ride?

Any tracks rip out?

Thanks for input

Re: Cuba for novices

What airport do you guys fly into?

Can you rely on transportation or do you need rent a car?
