Snowboarding is a winter sport that was probably invented in the early XX century, but popularized in the 1960’s.
It’s all about riding down slopes and having fun. The basic setup involves a board, bindings and boots. There are two types of boards – stiffer, for high-speed, slaloms etc. and softer for freestyle, normal riding, learning and stuff like that. The high-speed boards are bent only on one end of board, but the softer ones are bent on both sides (because freestyle riders sometimes need to ride backwards when doing tricks).
Bindings for those two types are also not the same, but let’s focus on soft board bindings. This is what they look like (I don’t think I have to comment anything).
