Looking for something special...

Hey, I'm planning to buy a new snowboard but I have a few conditions for it: 1 It has to be good, 2 It has to be good looking, 3 It has to be a wide and the most important one: it has to be (almost) unique.
I've thinking about brands like skate banana or rome or stuf like that.
I'm now boarding with a burton custom wide but I'm been tired to see everyone with the same deck.
So people that know a little bit more of the decks from skate banana or people that know other recommandation please help me?

Thanks

Bananas are not unique... And neither are Rome boards. K2 is also one of the biggest sellers of sticks so they aren't unique either. And Burton is as mainstream as you get.

What size are your boots?

I wear a size 14 boot with a large foot print and I can ride a board with a 260 waist width with no drag. Your stance width and angles do play a part in this.

Here's some smaller company names that would put a unique stick under your feet while retaining a good quality

Never Summer is unique/rare depending on where you live...

Bean
Unity
Dinosaurs Will Die
YES!
Stepchild
Smokin


Out of all of these companies I've seen a Dinosaurs wil die and a Smokin board on the hill personally.

And I'm most likely purchasing a YES! for next season


And there's more but I can't think of em off the top of my head.

Oh yeah, you're really going to be unique out there on the slopes with your Skate Banana! No one else has that board!

Smokin' makes sick boards. If I was to add another board to my quiver, if it wasn't a third Never Summer, it would probably be a Smokin'.

don't have personal experience of the quality but in terms of uniqueness I don't think there's too many Jones boards out there. the flagship 162 wide and the mountain twin 160 wide and 164 wide look like they might be the right size...

Can of spray paint makes any deck unique.

nothing wrong with a nice banana(: hahaha
i dont see many on my local hills to tell the truth
for me its more about how i like the board more than how it looks, which is why i got one myself after riding it.
