Budget Boardin’ Buys

Let’s face it, boardin’ isn’t exactly cheap. Its pretty f—king expensive, actually. At some point, you’ll have to fork over your hard earned cash to replace or upgrade parts of your kit, so here are a few quality products that are a little easier on the wallet.

Union Cadet-DLX Bindings, $150
This bare bones binder has all of Union’s high-end luxuries without the high-end price tag. It’s got an extruded, anodized aluminum heelcup that adds strength and durability while staying super lightweight, and the Stage I baseplate has a lifetime warranty against breakage. Plus, it’s the pick of Union riders Joe Sexton and Jon Kooley, so you’re in good company rocking these.
