I've been boarding for about a year or so and have been doing pretty well. I was out on the water today and lost feeling in my toes! Is this normall, or is it my bindings?

your bindings, what kind do you have? try adjusting them different ways to fit you better.

I have 2003 Liquid Force Speed Bindings. I have loosend them and moved them to almost every position that you can move them to. I don't know if I need new bindings or what. But it is kinda hard to board when you can't feel your toes.

ohhh, those arnt the best of bindings. try upgrading to something a little more popular. those are liquid forces low end bindings. Go for the higher end bindings like ultras and exos. Try ebay if you are low on cash.

That happened all the time in my ultras, now that I have parks it rarely happens. BTW my XL ultras were smaller than my large parks.

The older LF bindings did tend to run small. I normally wear a medium binding and I could barely fit into a medium Ultra. After 3 minutes I couldn't feel my feet. I've got medium Alphas now and they fit great - no adjusting needed at all. <BR> <BR> If you have to, loosen up the top overlay to give your foot a little more space in the binding.

I think that I will try to get some transits while I am down at Surf Expo this year. I was just wondering. Thanx guys. What about a new board. I want to progress more but I don't know what type of board I should get. I am riding a 143 now and after riding a 136 it feels like a sheet of plywood. what should I do?

that usually happens to me. i would just take a break

Hope it wont happen anymore. I just pick up a new 04 LF Fusion 139 and 04 LF Alpha Bindings. <BR> <BR>
