We all love a shiny new bit of kit, don’t we? Our bank balance, however, might not be as keen on a new set up as we are. When you’re paying a few hundred quid for a week ski pass, you’re gonna want to save a few pennies where you can. Short of building your own Frankenstein board or heading into a rental shop to walk out with a board 15cm too big and older than you, the options can seem limited. But fear not! We’ve searched long and hard over the past winter and put a helluva lot of equipment through its paces. We’ve scoured trade shows and trawled on-snow demos hunting for the best value snowboards of 2019-2020.

Good value is all relative though, a £3000 snowboard may seem pretty steep to most of us. But, when you find out the carbon stringers are interwoven with Shaun White’s pubes and guarantee that you’ll ride like him, it all seems a bit more worth it. Unfortunately (fortunately?) we didn’t find any boards with this particular additive, but we have found a buttload of boards that we think fit the bill. These aren’t just the cheapest boards on the market, these are all high quality, well-made products with a bafflingly small price tag. Neither are they all beginner boards, they’re the boards we felt performed above and beyond what you could reasonably expect from the price tag.
Each and every snowboard in this list got the seal of approval from the Whitelines Test Team. For arguments sake, we’ve capped the list at a £400 maximum price tag otherwise we could go on all day.
