I really like the looks of the yellow/green 08/09 much more than the
09/10, at least as far as looks go.

The problem is so do thieves. You can see a banana board 3 miles away if its on a rack. I met one kid that got his stolen, and apparently that resort had had several other Skate Banana's taken this season. If there was a list of most commonly stolen snowboards like there are for cars, a Skate Banana would easily be #1.

Sometimes its nice to be conspicuous.

If you do get one lock that crap up tight with a good bike chain lock..or pay for ski check if your mountain has it.

Burton are the number 1 stolen decks always have been. Brand name recognition. But on a plus side Mervin decks don't have serial numbers.

Ok yea..i guess thats true ...Burton probably wins just by share numbers because they have so many boards out there...

well obviously burton has the most boards stolen, they sell the most boards, most people you dont know anything about snowboarding buy burton boards. And im pretty sure if i was gonna steal a board and it was between a burton board and a banana i would definitely take the banana, unless it was a burton vapor or something cause then i would just sell it.
