Skiboards with Release Bindings – Performance and Flex

We get a lot of questions about skiboards with release bindings – performance and flex in particular.

Are you happy?

Is it possible to be happy all the time? Ever wondered about that. This actually occupies the attention of the majority of the human race, whether they realize it or not. Ever planned something expecting deep down that it would make you happy? Or finally completed a project knowing that life would be just a bit better?
