Snowboarding bailout.

Whether you have mouths to feed or are a broke student on a tight budget, the Stepchild Child Support Snowboard is an affordable option that will satisfy your freestyle cravings without putting you in the poorhouse. It features a poppy Micro Camber profile and a jib-friendly flex to deliver a fun ride whether you're hitting features in the street, lapping the park, or just cruising your favorite groomers.

Micro Camber is a toned-down version of traditional camber that still offers plenty of pop and edge hold, but with a less aggressive feel that won't punish you for the slightest under-rotation. Its soft flex makes it fun to press and jib with, while the lively wood core keeps it snappy enough for sending jumps and carving around the resort. And when you beat up the extruded base, it's fairly easy to repair so you can keep the good times going all season.
