In general, most kiteboards come with some type of foot strap that allows riders to attach and detach from the board easily. While not always true, this is usually required if you're looking to do jumps and board off tricks. Bindings are usually used by wake style riders trying to perform wakeboarding tricks.
NSI, a true innovator in kiteboarding, has designed a foot strap that will "rule" the market and have the industry scrambling for a knock off.
Built with the same consistent high quality materials as the popular Adam Koch Pro Kite Strap, the new design has an integrated ladder strap and ratchet buckle, This accommodates a HUGE range of adjustment that will completely cement your feet to your board with comfort and no hot spots. And easy on the water adjustment and you can change your foot wear and still use the same straps. Great in schools and for multiple users of a board.
Specifiy color when ordering.

If you are a beginner or want a good all-round board, we suggest the slip-in binding. Wake style bindings can be difficult to take off and put on, especially while in the water. With one hand on the kite, this can make adjustments and removal quite difficult. Having a board strapped to your feet with a secure boot binding can also not be a good situation. The kite will keep going and the board might not always be in the best of positions. Slip in binding are a good compromise and allow you to spend more time riding instead of working on your equipment. As with all configurations, there are pros and cons to weigh out when selecting your bindings, so a little homework and research might be in order.
At kite-line, we offer bindings from Cabrinha, Litewave, North, NSI and Dakine. If you have any questions, let us know how we can clear things up.
