Your good up to like 40ft on the SB. I dunno about the GNU cause Ive never rode one. But if its similar to the SB then yeah probably 40ft.

The Banana has a better core, better base, and I think better glass. It is definitely softer and more pressable but still has some pop to it.

Skate banana has a softer middle and a stiffer nose and tail.
I think this might make it handle jumps a little better and perhaps some speed.

Then the carbon credit will be better for buttering and such.
Which makes sense because the extruded base and all prolly makes that more of a rail board than the skate banana for maintenance.

The "big air" park jumper however is neither of these. It's the Dark Series.
