Hey guys, I thoiught that everyone would like to know about this cool thing that I discovered the other day at a ski show. It is called the booster strap. Check it out at theboosterstrap.com I have been skiing for the past two days and I can just say this thing is fucking awesome. It holds the cuff of the boot snug against your shin, but when you land flat or leaning back, the elastic on the front gives way and allows you to flex forward. It is available for 20 dollars at mogulskishop.com I got it for 25 directly from the retailer. I definitely think that you should check it out.
