Peeps, <BR> <BR>Can someone tell me if I am doing something wrong or do I have equipment problems or neither? <BR> <BR>Premier 135 with Hype 30/60's (2001) <BR> <BR>Here's the deal... When I get big air doing Wake2Wake jumps 2 things can happen. If I land on the backside of the other wake I have a great smooth and soft landing. Everything feels great. <BR> <BR>But when I land out in the flats my right foot nearly pushes out of my binding. It's like my enitre foot is about to be pushed out through the TOE part of the binding because of the hard landing. I have been able to reduce this a bit by absorbing my landings by bending my knees... but this only helps so much. <BR> <BR>One solution would be to not land out in the flats and just land on the backside of the other wake.... but we all know thats not going to happen. <IMG SRC="http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/clipart/happy.gif" ALT=":-)" BORDER=0> <BR> <BR>Does anyone else have this problem or have a suggestion? Would new and better bindings help (I thought the 30/60's we supposed to be one of the top models) or is this just normal?

Before buying new smaller bindings. I would tighten the front over-lays on the your bindings. Mine did the same thing when going big.

Took your advice guys. Went out today and it totally helped. We had butter for about 5 hours and I got the biggest air in all my riding days. And the bindings held up and my toes didn't push out. <BR> <BR>Great advice and thanks!
