The best part about ejecting is Im fairly sure its saved me on at least 2 concussions, as last year when I had similiar falls but with my lace bindings, I didnt come out but I did get concussed. Properly concussed, not ouch I think maybe, but the what did I just do kind of concussed.
I have no doubt it is way better to come out of your bindings but I just dont see how to make a proper system for it.
I do know the velcro seems to be a pretty good system for me personally so far.
The thought of catching a proper raley cut edge with these new hype bindings actually makes me feel a little sick ha ha
When you eject out of both bindings it may save you a headache.... or it may not, what happens when that board with the sharp corners and metal fins nails you in the head? Hell I got 10 stitches in my eyebrow from a wakesurf board when we were going all of like 9mph. Not to mention what happens when only one leg comes out. If catching a raley edge makes you sick, think about catching an edge like that where you only loose one binding and the board gets yanks 90-180 degrees.....
I haven't come out of my bindings in years and personally I want to keep it that way so that I don't need to reconstruct my knee anytime soon
