Alright im sort-of a newb to wake boarding, i can get up and move back and forth, do a few surface tricks ect. but anyways, a few days ago i caught an edge and took a pretty hard faceplant. that wasn't the problem, the problem was that the binding on my left foot completely snapped off the board, so as you can see this is a problem, and i don't really know where to go from here, i know none of the wake boarding brands/ whats good and durable also i don't even know if i have a decent board. so some direction on what bindings are good would be greatly appreciated, also has anyone else had problems like this?

thanks in advance,
Sam

here come the pics lol

I would get liquid force or ronix. Either will last a long time they are a little spendy but worth it, you can get really hurt by bindings breaking.

You are on the wrong size board you do need a 142 or larger board.

Those Hydroslide bindings are not very good. Take a look at some of the wakeboard packages we have at http://www.boardstop.com and look for a package in the larger size.

Give them a call if you have questions.
