joeydzzl - you are correct. Next years GNU Rider's Choice has magnetraction and banana tech. If you are a lucky individual like myself who lives on the West Coast, you can go to Sports Chalet and pick it up a year early. For some reason GNU gave it to them this year. I picked mine up at the beginning of this season, and it is the best board I have ever ridden. Hands down!!
OMG. are the '09 skate bananas out at sports chalet?
