well the magnetraction that dharma is talking about is a completely different technology than the banana technology, although the skate banana also has magnetraction, which is great. what your getting with the banana is a board with reverse camber, which is a board whose curve goes up a little on the nose and tail. this makes butters and presses easier. i've also heard it makes carves quicker and makes the board really floaty over the pow. overall, it sounds like a great technology. i'm gonna pick up a naner myself next season.
