5 affordable snowboards for the new park rider
Written By: pauly

By Steve Rodriguez

If you are looking to become a better rider in the terrain park, it is time to ditch that busted Walmart-special and invest in a real freestyle snowboard. Borrow some money from mom and dad, mow some lawns, shine some shoes… Do what you have to do to legitimize your style this spring.

There is no reason you can’t scrape the cash together for any the five affordable park boards listed below:

2010 Sierra Stunt snowboard


Sierra Stunt

The Stunt specializes in fun: fun learning new ground tricks, fun sliding a rail, and fun mingling with all the tricksters at your local resort. In response to repeated demand from Sierra Snowboard’s online community, the Stunt is an amazing park-specific snowboard with limited availability and an irresistible price tag. Check out the sale price HERE.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Capita Stairmaster snowboard
Capita Stairmaster

The Stairmaster originated as a board discounted out of the box that’s smaller, wider, softer, and designed for maneuverability around the park. The ride-ability of this series has become legendary in relation to the price tag, and the overwhelming demand for these boards continues after being named by TransWorld Snowboarding the #4 Men’s Freestyle board in the world under $400 while beating every other board in the Top 10 on price.  Check out the sale price HERE.

 

 

 

 

 

Rome Cheap Trick snowboard
Rome Cheap Trick

Some people are cool with paying extra money for a can of SpaghettiOs when a bowl of steamy-hot Ramen will stave off the munchies just as well. Others would rather save their dough for their other habits – like shredding the park. With a jib-and-jump flex profile, the Cheap Trick is as much about tail pressing park rails as it is about saving your pizza delivery tips for a night pass to your local 300-vertical-foot mountain.  Check out the sale price HERE.

 

 

 

 

 

Forum Youngblood Chillydog snowboard
Forum Youngblood Chillydog

Progression lies at the very root of the Youngblood soul. The crew progresses riding and the board enables them to progress. So it only made sense to bring ChillyDog Continuous Rocker to this established street stick. Less on-edge hang-up and all the stability of a continuous rocker, translates to more stomped landings, more new tricks and a new Youngblood. Youngblood with Chillydog. What could be better?  Check out the sale price HERE.

 

 

 

 

 

Nitro Haze snowboard
Nitro Haze

A great introduction to park riding, the Haze is a mellow-yet-bulletproof twin board that is designed to help riders learn new tricks. Jumping, jibbing, and buttering will be easier than ever before. Master the progression park this season with the Haze. Check out the sale price HERE.
