2nd board

Hey, I have a 166 nitro pantera which I really like being 6'4 and 200lbs, size 11 feet Its good for me for carving and cruising around. I was thinking of getting a 2nd board just for mucking around on, something less stiff, so i though skate bannana. question I had was is this a good board for just some general all around stuff eg, butters on groomers, rails, ollies, cruising about, some carving. And will I still be able to ride it at a decent speed (is it too soft) was thinking of going the 156?

Would i be able to ride it all over the mountain, in a fun relaxed manner- keeping in mind that the pantera is a stiffish freeride board (so i dont think i need too much of a mixture eg. burton custom)

Also I have a friend coming with me for the first time this year would he be able to learn ok on the banana or is it just too different?

you'll be fine as long as you realize its not going to ride like your pantera so don't expect it too. you'll have to ride a bit slower but thats the point right? you want a more skate style ride?

you can learn on anyboard, really. i mean a super long stiff board isn't a good option to learn on but anything that is in the normal range of lenght and flex you can learn on.

Thanks, and yeah thats the whole point- a bit slower, a bit mellower, a bit more of a laugh. What do ppl think of the GNU Street Series?

i have an older gnu street series, and it was a good all around board. If you get a newer model with btx then your gonna get the banana camber which is more jib oriented

if you want a really good all around board then i would recommend the capita indoor survival, which for 2010 is getting capita's fk and reverse camber
