Skate Banana vs Lib Tech Dark Series

hey guys, im new to these a pretty good rider id say intermediate in the terrain park, not amazing but not terrible, im wondering which board you think would be better for me? I want to get a new board this season that is better for still riding my first board a burton elite which is not good for terrain at all. Im mostly into terrain but every once in a while ill catch myself racing down trails with my sister or dad or something. So pretty much what im wondering is which do you think is better? money isnt really an issue but im looking for the better terrain board here. Im 5'10" and about 160 im assuming like a 158ish board. what do you guys think? Or do you think theres a better decision is should be making? these were the two i was thinking were best for me..

I'm liek uber n00bish but I hear that GnU's line is just like LibTechs and you can ride them 3 - 4 cm shorter.... Check on youtube for "banana tech" and they have reviews and explinations on the board...

Skate Banana and Dark Series are very different boards. Also what do you mean by terrain? Terrain is everything that is rideable

Opposite ends of the spectrum here with those board choices. Dark series is pretty freeride and Banana is pretty much park.

Not trying to be judgemental or an ass but it sounds like you've gotten to the point where you can carve and 50-50 small jibs in the baby park.

If this is the case, you sound like you want an all around freestyle board. Look at the Believer, Parkstar, Banana, Horrorscope, Nitro Team Gullwing, Machete, Stepchild Everything Sucks, Evil Twin, Park Pickle, or maybe an Evo-R.

I'd aim for a 153-156. Bigger for more freeride and jumps. Smaller for more playability and jibbing.

Snowboarding Is...

That thing I do to escape the world and have fun with my friends
