Those are both awesome suggestions! It's interesting that never summer's revolver has a somewhat similar tech to the banana and all of bataleon's boards too.
But I think I've been pulled in by all the shining reviews of the bataleon boards and might find myself waiting until next year to grab a riot. Everything I've read about that one makes it sound perfect for me, and it looks like the waist width gets up to 260 on their 159 so I could probably fit my huge mutant feet on it too.
Will definitely look around more for that revolver. If I can find a board shop near me with one in stock and marked down I just might cave~ Chances are looking pretty slim though... C'mon board companies, give Canada a little more support!
