Default How to get skate banana??

Hey all.

So I feel like I got my moneys worth on my 1st "learner" board (A K2 Fuse) and after much research, have decided to spoil myself, if possible, with a new Lib Tech skate banana for next season.

I am still fairly new to snowboarding. I didn't even know they released new models/ updated models of snowboards each year, until recently.

So I have been searching for bananas, and had little luck.

So my question is....To get a 2010 skate banana, do I just have to be the first in line at the board shop when they come in? Or will they let you reserve them?
When do the years newer models generaly get released to the public?

Sorry if any of this sounds dumb. I tried to find this info on my own, but little luck.

Thanks.

i wanna say they come out in oct/nov but am not sure. if you're buying full retail i don't think it would be hard at all to snag a banana.

you dont need to worry at all about not be able to get a banana, once they come out like the post above says which is usaully in oct, nov., they will be easy to find on most snowboarding websites and stores but they will just be at full retail price. Usually if you want to buy them on sale you will have to wait for the season to end and look on websites.

The hype behind the banana has passed they aren't selling out as fast as they used to. You'll find one no problem.

The 2010 banana graphics look really good. I wasn't a big fan of the 09 zebra stripe. Either way I have my eyes set on a Never Summer Circuit as soon as my local shop gets one. Thanks BA for the recommendation on that one.

Like $430. Maybe less. I can't remember now. I know my TRS was $560 and I remember thinking the banana was WAY less

yeah right the 2010 skate banana is the ugliest stick I've ever laid eyes upon.
