Skiboard Bindings and Boot Fit
Proper binding fit requires cleaning the bottoms of your boots from snow, dirt, and other prior to putting on your skiboards. If you clamp on your skiboard non-releasae bindings with snow, etc. on the bottoms of your boots, then at some point, if the snow melts or loosens, the bindings won’t fit properly and you don’t want that happenig when you are riding down the mountain. You certainly don’t want your bindings to come loose. This is also true for ski release bindings.
Essential to a great day on the slopes is having comfortable boots that provide the proper support. Boots should fit comfortably, but also snugly. Toes should be able to wiggle and not be cramped in the front of the boots. On occasion, hot spots and pressure points can occur. Boot fitters are well worth the money to have your boots fit just right. Comfort is always a top priority so either try a bunch on at a local shop or find ski boots with thermofit liners that custom mold to your feet.
Our Alpina Skiboard Boots do have thermofit liners. We sell these on Skiboards.com and are quite pleased with these, as are our customers. They are excellent for both comfort and performance.
Make sure that you dry the inner liners after skiboarding. This prevents molds and fungus from growing. Pull out the liners and let them dry at room temperature. Also, store the boots with buckles latched so they will hold their shape. One more tip is to keep your boots warm when heading to the mountains as they will fit better and go on easier.
