Default Lib Tech Skate Banana overkill?

Sorry to make another thread but I might be ordering a 156cm blue/green Skate Banana tomorrow.

I'm 5'11" and weigh ≈ 140lbs with a beginner-intermediate skill level. I have been snowboarding maybe 20 times in the past 4 years due to plain not going and a broken wrist last year.

I'm an avid skateboarder and when I snowboard I spend most of my time messing around on boxes, small kickers, but every once in a while I like to hit the harder trail and enjoy the speed.

I have some Union Force bindings size l/xl and in cyan. For boots in have some vlack/blue size 11 DC Scout Boas.

Now for the questions:
Is this board too advanced for me?
Could I possibly get 4-5 seasons with care?




Thanks in advance, promise this will be the last thread...

It'll be most of everything you want although it might be a little loose when you're bombing runs. It's not really intended for that.

But you said you like skateboarding and plan to use a similar style apparently, so this would be a perfect fit in that regard. I'd say go for it.

I went to my local Ski-Country and ended up getting a Never Summer Evo. I got the white topsheet and 151cm. What sealed the deal was the 3 year warranty and the fact I got a 15% discount and free set-up and tuning.

Now I just have to wait until January 5th for when he get my pass.
