Lib Tech Attack Banana
Just bought the 156 Lib Tech Attack Banana and it is a SICK board. Perfect stiffness (can manual down the whole mountain), carves amazing, very responsive. I bought the board after not riding for 2 years, and my first 2 times down the mountain I wiped out 2 times when stopping, and naturally, I complained thinking that I had too much heel overhang. Then the rest of the times I went down I had not problem. Do you think that was me just breaking in the board, catching too much edge when trying to stop and the board slipping because it was Icy? Or do you think that I should have bought a wider board?
I have size US11.5 ThirtyTwo Boots (they run small and 11.5 is more towards the 11 or 10.5 range), with Burton Mission Bindings (They have a thicker base, boots are higher off the ground)The board width is 25.3cm, and I use a duck stance.
My question is, do you think I should have bought a wider board, or do you think I am just being anal? I only had like 2 bad runs, (until I got used to the board) then I was fine, getting 10+ feet of air off the jumps.
What do you guys think? Anal or legitimate concern?
