Default 151 narrow? Lib Tech Skate Banana size?

How narrow is this board? and what does it mean if it's narrow? I'm thinking this is the perfect sized board for me (length wise). I ride a 152 Stairmaster currently how much narrower (is that even a word lol!?) would the Nana be? i'm 5'9.5'' 145lbs shoe size 10? what do you guys think? good size or what size nana should I get?

You must be more buff then me hahha

For reals though, A few questions??

How stable is the board at decent speeds?
Does it handle medium sized kickers alright?
How would you rate the flex?
Oh and how is the pop on this deck?

Thanks manng

buff? when i was living in mammoth for 6months and snowboarding daily . i say i had decent cut body

stability .. it depends if you kinda straight line and go anywhere from 30-45mph .. its a lil shaky, but all the other things makes up for it

medium size . im not sure what size is that . i hit anything from 15 - 40 feet .. and so far iv not any trouble landing it . 15-25feet, learning how to spin and 25-40 feet i just do grabs as of now

flex, so far i had only been on a burton shaun white 07 and an atomic cold smoke .. those boards were 2 out of 10 . the banana is 6 or 6.5 out of 10 .. buttery ..

pop is excellent .. i might get another board next season .. a new one i mean .. im def gonna go for the banana .. anything that has reverse camber + magnetraction is FTW

Man i cant decide between the skate banana and Gnu Street series anyone got any comment on that comparison. From what i can gather they are real similar boards just the Street Series is a bit softer in flex...Does that sound ontarget??

I think the Banana is stiffer in the ends and softer in the middle.

Overall, it looks like this makes the banana more skewed toward the all mountain spectrum, while the Street more skewed toward the jib spectrum.
