Gigi’s binder of choice, The Union Contact Pro is designed with fun in mind, the softer flex pattern keeps you feeling loosey goosey when you’re surfing the white wave.
Union claim that the mini disk only allows for 5% contact with your board, allowing the wood to flex more naturally, and giving you more feel underfoot. This is great for the jibbers and jivers out there, who want to be able to get that playful control and feel from their deck.

Comfort is key for riding and the Contact Pro’s foam baseplate acts as a dampener and absorbs some of the vibrations making for an oh so smooth ride. The ankle strap has also been also updated for your comfort and is designed to form around your boot without squashing your feet. Say bye-bye to uncomfortable pressure points and hot spots over the tops of your boots with the grippy and malleable toe straps, that are designed keep you locked in without becoming cumbersome.
Union are known for being tougher than most and certainly live up to their reputation with this binding. Aluminium heelcup and ratchets will stand the test of time, whilst keeping weight down.
Cut out Duraflex highbacks are flexy and playful and won’t stiffen up when the temperature drops, so you’ll have a more consistent ride. They’re mid-high so you’ll get a good amount of movement without sacrificing response.
