Not bootpacking.

I was looking at the Rome reverb rocker. what you think?

Oh and I would like to pop wheelies when in the mood for messing around like that. I was barely lifting the banana even when I was bending all the way back.. I don't like that.

what do you suggest?

-excllent for jumps
-rail and box dominator
I suggest you learn to butter. Buttering is not "leaning". You have to use muscles to press and butter.

Closest thing you'll get to something that is awesome on both jumps and rails is an Arbor Wetmark, Flow Verve, Signal Park Flat, or a Salomon Drift rocker. But none of those are going to be easier to press than a Banana. But they are all better boards overall.

Snowboarding Is...

That thing I do to escape the world and have fun with my friends
