PSA: Echelon boards for $99

Just giving a heads up, if you are looking for a park board/want to try a different base tech. They are selling any of last seasons boards they have left in stock for $99. On their website.

Awesome, thanks for the PSA. Got myself an Echelon Orion

Yup... I've officially entered gear whore territory.

Due to the rising cost of ammo, do not expect a warning shot! Sorry for the inconvenience.

Me too! Now i have a tradition camber all mountain freestyle board, a hybrid camber freeride board, a splitboard and a flat camber 3D base park board. Might need some new bindings for the park board.

They also did some sample stock and testbed stuff for even cheaper.

I had bought the Killbox back in March for what i thought was a great price, but with these prices i had to do some dollar cost averaging by buying another

Fed Ex dropped off my new 157 Orion today. I slapped some old burton custom bindings on it and played with it a bit. Pretty soft and playful compared to my other boards. Light weight too, at least when compare against the billy goat. I think it will be a fun, forgiving board to play around with and practice switch riding. Definitely worth the 99 bucks. The 3d base is more subtle than i had expected, noticable but barely.

The Orion is a fun board, whenever I get back on it after riding the Avenger I get way too into presses and it loops out on me since I have to put a lot of weight into pressing the Avenger the same way hah.
