Default Everyone's going Bananas

I was at COP with the groms yesterday, and I swear, every second board was a Banana.

How are they making so many? Aren't they all handmade in the lib-tech factory?

As many Never Summer boards as I saw last weekend there was 2 banana's for every 1. I really thought we would see the Pickle out in force this year like the Banana. Didn't see a single pickle! Strange!

Yeah same here I'd love to try one out. I heard it was on the stiffer side though which makes the name pretty deceiving.

My local shop has about 4-5 pickles. Feels about mid flex when i flex it with my hand. Although that may be decieving cause it probably has stiffer tips like the skate banana.

To early in the season for the pickel . if some one is on a new pickel there not the smartest person . early season riding kills boards . just my 2 cents. give it a month and they will be every where .

At least my Banana's the lamest colour choice from '09, so it will still have some semblence of originality left.

Most of the shops around me now are carrying tons of '10 bananas. Where were they last year?

There have been tons of bananas here in WA for the last 3yrs, especially at Baker. I've been off that for a long time now.
