It still has all the benefits of riding Banana but solves all of the problems that I wasn’t content with on Banana. Banana is the funnest board to ride but I don’t film or compete on it.
Does that even make sense? Is he saying it's the funnest in a shitty plank sort of way? Do the pros use special boards? Even if he didn't ride it, he shouldn't knock the bread-n-butter proprietary tech that his sponsor bases its marketing on to tout a new tech he still prob won't ride on.
anyway, does most of the riding that travis does look like "fun" snowboarding to you? heavily rockered boards or boards with lost of rocker between the bindings just simply are not as stable at really high rates of speed and are harder to land cleanly on, especially on very large jumps with a lot of rotation and torque. when someone says a board is "fun" they usually mean its very easy to ride and do slower speed tricks on. travis is a very powerful rider and despite all the marketing hype regular camber has its place in that type of riding.
Sad but true...have you ridden a new C2 banana yet to see if it rides like a NS Board?
I know Lib Boards tend to be much softer than Never Summer, so even with the same tech it may not ride as well?
the boards will ride completely differently because they are made by two different companies and will have their own shapes and specs. saying lib won't ride "as well" is silly, some will prefer lib some will prefer ns.
