Skate Banana/ Pickle just a Jib Stick?

Or are they stable enough/ have enough pop to hit pretty good size jumps. Also, which one is more jump oriented? (im not saying I wont be jibbing.)

i have the 2010 pickle. its a great board for park but it can handle bigger jumps and higher speeds than the banana.

dont buy a board based on graphics. if you're that annoyed by it just cover it up with stickers. or just get over it.

The Skate Banana is True-Twin...and only the smaller sizes are medium flex. Then it becomes med-stiff. If you feel them in the store you will notice a big difference between the smallest size and the stiffer ones.

The smaller ones are softer, but they are still not "noodles". It's also stiffer on the ends and softer in the middle. That's supposed to make it float better in pow or some crap.

And what's a "good sized jump"? 60 ft? Go with a Dark Series. But it's not that good with rails then.

All boards vary in stiffness across the different sizes. This is the whole point of the weight rating system that manufacturers put up. Obviously, a 200lb person is going to flex a 159cm board a lot easier than someone that weighs 100lbs. Unless the lighter weight person is a weight lifting freak of nature like one of my buddies.

i completely agree. not buying a good board because u don't like the grahics might seem silly, but if it can be replaced with something similar in performance it's problem solved.

now the real problem is people who buy boards just because they like the graphics, without knowing anything about the board itself. I walked into shops to hear how sick the burton feather was, while next to some kick ass boards.

Burton's female boards get good from the Lux and up. The Feather and Social are crap in my opinion.
