Lib Tech Skatebanana vs NeverSummer SL
Hi all, I am needing to purchase a new snowboard, and I'm stuck on these two.

Lib Tech Skatebanana.

Never Summer SL

I am 6'2" 215lbs and size 11 feet.

I was thinking the 161 never summer, but the lib tech is tempting me because of price. I want an All mountain, and 161 just feels a bit long for that. Otherwise if neither of these work out, I was planning on a Burton Process Flying V (but I would need to buy bindings) Suggestions?

I have a 159 skatebanana and like it a lot. I'm 6" and about 210lb with size 11 feet. I use it for all mountain even though it's technically not an all mountain board. It holds up well for me, and I wouldn't trade it for anything right now. The never summer SL seems to be a really good board too though. Never rode it, but most people will tell you it's the better all mountain board between the two.

Either board would be great. Seems size and $$ is pushing you towards the Skatebanana

Go with the NS. Being a big guy myself, banana is a bumpy ride with the contact points being under your feet versus a board with rocker and camber which will put the boards contact points further out near the nose. Just my opinion.

I have the big boot version of the SL.. its an all mountain dream! Very happy with it even in the POW. Its very damp so when you chop thru crud you really do not feel it all too much. Based on your weight I would say go 163.

I am 6'3 205 and ride a 161.. wish I would have gone 163.
