Skate Banana vs. Attack Banana
Hello I've narrowed my search for my first board down to these 2 Lib Tech Boards. The Skate Banana and the Attack Banana. I'm leaning to getting the Attack Banana right now because I like the idea of the Rocker+Camber idea and reviews say its better than the SB in the Powder. Once I have chosen what board to get and actually get it i'll be starting off just riding groomers and a little park but when I get used to the board and feel comfortable on it I plan on hitting the park full on.
My school teacher is a huge powder rider and half the class rides or ski's so the class is thinking about going to Nelson B.C. for some powder skiing sometime, so thats why I want to be able to ride powder. And since I live near 5 medium to large sized mountains within 2 hours drive and 2 of the mountains having regular powder days I'll be hitting some powder.
I live in Vancouver B.C. so my snow will be fake, ice, slush, hard packed powder and light West coast powder. I'm 16 years old, 120lbs and 6' tall and very skinny. I have a shoe size of 11 but my shoes have a 1/2'' to 1'' of space between toes and tip of shoe so I'll probably be getting a 10 - 10.5 Boot size. I haven't looked into boots yet but will be soon.
I probably won't be riding the board much this season so the main bulk of my riding will start next season so I'm probably going to get a 156 sized board. at my local shop they say I should be riding a 154 but since I will probably grow in the offseason I don't want to have a small board next season. My bro is 18 and 6' 5" so I probably will grow a few more inches.
So my main question is What board is better for my style of riding, the Skate Banana or Attack Banana.
If you want more info i'll do my best to answer it.
