For some serious mono-stoke you need to check out these two films with Pif Brun... Second one is a descent of the Eugster on the North face of the Midi...

As far as knees go on a single board you need both bindings to release simultaneously or not at all. That why there's never been a releasable binding for snowboards (that was safe anyway). That said, whatever it takes to have fun meets the "justifiable" standard, and it's a bit better than some other niche snow sports






Hahahahahahaahaha! That video is amazing. I will be sharing it.

Can only see two real uses:

1) Breakable crust - probably still worth a miss
2) Separation (body-legs) - drills

Nice video, I just seem to be missing the helicopter to reach that powder. Guess will be sticking to a conventional touring setup.
