Ezloungin slowly transforming into jerryland. Step ons, sitting down.. What's next? Flow bindings on never summers? After that: rurocs

Kidding of course.

I usually have to sit down only if I'm strapping in on a steep slope. Even then I might spend too much time digging a level platform with my heel edge before realising it's pointless..

were getting old? I'm closer to 50 than 40 now (shudders).

Dude that's inspiring if anything. But yeah, that did cross my mind, but decided to fuck with it anyway. Occasionally I ride with this dude in his late 60s who still straps in standing up. Dude tackles some heavy terrain (high risk backcountry bowls etc.) as well. I only wish my knees were up to the task when I get that old.

Alain  from ex Tip-top ?

Well him too! Except I rarely see him on the slopes these days aside from with a client.. 🙁

Other than getting seriously injured or ill i don't see why you cant ride up to 80 or whatever. Assuming you train a bit and maintain a normal weight. I honestly think people degrade because they don't take care of their body.

Very true. But most of them started late. If you started skating at a young age and did it a lot, it's a great start to fucked up knee problems. I was first operated on at 25 for the amount of cartilage I'd lost. Snowboarding is slightly friendlier to abrasion, but has potential to really fuck them up in one go. Skiers have it usually even worse.

I realise it is months later, and I may have missed it being posted here but… found those red Cheetahs. Collab with "Nut Butter" Japanese brand:

That is crazy expensive for something with the words "Nut Butter" printed on it… 

What’s DragonFly 2 core?

Just a name for one of their core layups, common in a lot of the high-end freeride boards if I’m not mistaken.

Me, >60 and riding 40+ days a year.   Stretching is key both on and off season.   My knees are still holding up.   I'm good.

Is it all sold out? Cannot see anything from the link, maybe just because I don't understand Japanese.

The Nut Cheetahs are sold out.  There were a few available a month ago but he won't ship to US, if that's your location.

Agreed, I’m 62 ride 60 to 65 days a year.  Stretching and weight training are the keys for riding until 80 IMO.  I never sit down to strap in.  Dig my heel side edge into the side of the slope and buckle in.   On another note bought the HTH and I believe it’s the easiest and smoothest turning board I have been on.  Great edge hold, very quick edge to edge.   Between the HTH and my favorite board of all time being the CA not sure what else you need in life.

Yeah, the HTH is amazing.  My favorites are the CA and FA. 

The HTH just moved into my top 3 Burton boards, edging out the SK.  I'm riding the HTH tomorrow.

Late to the party here, but I have the Photons in 9 with med SOs and fit seems solid, no movement in the toe or heel once properly clicked in. Totally agree with @ivo and @bfbf. Like @drjcv said, maybe they worked out all the kinks in the earlier versions, the 19/20 version seems good. I swear I heard the clicking once or twice during my second day on this setup, but never felt any play or looseness in the bindings. I read somewhere the occasional clicking is due to reflect discs and board flex on uneven terrain but, don't really care as long as the boots stay tight in the bindings. So far so good for me, really liking the responsiveness and ease of use. 

On a different note, never really thought much about sitting down vs standing up to strap in. Then  this weekend, noticed myself spending way too much time digging my edges in on icy conditions to strap in while standing (got lazy and didn't switch out my strap ins with my SOs on my HTH)... thought of this thread and laughed at myself a little... Still couldn't get myself to just sit down and strap in.  🙂

Is this Cheetah the same specs as the previous Craig's or are these the ones with a wider nose?
