I love that artwork and remember it when it was first released. Beautiful board.
My local shop owner said he got to ride the C3 Jamie Lynn and said he liked it, but said it felt 'old school' and that he prefers the C2 boards. He is an aggressive and fit freestyle rider (was doing front flips on opening day) on his C2 and loves Banana Boards. I don't think he puts much weight on carving at all but I think I would like it.
Personally, I would be interested in trying a C3 board. I just bought a Banana Magic and flat love it. I mean REALLY love it - I think it's the perfect board for me. But as someone who likes to carve I've like to compare the "enhanced" Banana (C1/C2 light) that the Magic has to a C3 board someday.
Well, C3 is on the other side of C2 compared to the !BTX! of the Magic, i.e., Magic has the most rocker and, as a result, only little pressure at the nose and tail/contact point area, while C3 should be opposite very little ("submissive", haha) rocker between the feet with most of the pressure toward the end of the board. C2 is somewhere in between.
