apologies...my bad, I had no clue you had been riding for 12 years. Btw at Baker, its not a demo day but the regular performance rental that you can switch out boards....but there is a demo weekend during the big race and you can demo a bunch and sometimes protos of the next year.

I had a skate banana 159 and it was too wide = very sluggish edge to edge and in the pow is was ok....but if you got a little nose or tail heavy or dropped a natty alittle too nose or tail heavy it would fold up and I went over the nose/tail....there was not enough stiffness to push against. But I don't do any jibby park stuff.
