OK, so now, you loop the shoelace tips back over the sides of the binding, and tie it in the back, just as tight as you would want for riding. Knot it 2-4 times, for added strength(you want this is to hold). Then cut off the extra lace behind the knot.

Step 5: Starting the Strap.

Start by making a peice of duct take 11 inches in length. then fold it over itself, covering all the sticky parts. then cut it off the roll, and place between the heel and shoelace.

    i used a thick piece of elastic to make my heel straps :3 and made a hole in each side and put the screw through it.

    can someone here tell me how to get into mountianboarding, and where to aqcuire a mountan board? I am goofy footed too.

    MBS mountainboards makes great ones. Try ebay or amazon?

    I didn't know anyone mountain boarded anymore. I remember wal-mart used to sell really cheap ones. If they still did I would buy one.

    www.mbs.com good quality, great fun.

    I'm too interested in this to spend all sorts of money. That's why it would be good if Wal-mart still sold those 50 dollar completes.

    yeah. I actualy remeber the kind your talking about. I dont know where to find it, but theres always the option to buy used

    I'm not so sure that there is an option to buy used with such an obscure sport.

    its not as obsure as one would think. its been groeing really fast. and, theres ebay

    There are less than 20 items found on ebay. Which seems obscure to me.
