Skate banana or burton blunt?

Hey guys im new this forum!
I have been looking around for a new board for this season and these 2 are the ones i have been looking at! Im going to be doing alot in the park. Im from canada and im not too familiar with any shops from canada carrying good park boards. So i wanna hear your guys thoughts on between the BLUNT or Skate banana? or your own suggestions (im 6'1 175lbs)

Well if I can make suggestions...

Arbor Blasklist is one of the greatest boards ever. The Signal Park Flat is possibly one of the best deals. As is the Flow Verve. And in my opinion those are all better than both you're original options

Right around a 154-155 for a park size.

Snowboarding Is...

That thing I do to escape the world and have fun with my friends

I'm not happy with the way my 13yr old's blunt held up and it was only ridden for 1/2 a season do to season ending injury.

It might've changed, but my blunt '08 had some topsheet problems... and I've heard others have had board-splitting problems as well.

But the skate banana is a solid board - rocker + mtraction will have you learning new tricks like nobody's business.

How does the Blunt ride? Isn't it supposed to be pretty fun?

nothing special about the blunt. the edges of the topsheet on mine are destroyed. but if this is your first board, don't get the banana, try to get a cambered board because it teaches you to snowboard better than a reverse camber. only get a RC board after you can ride a cambered. if I were you, I would get a Bataleon board. they have this thing called triple base technology which I a cambered board, but its kinda like rockered from edge to edge. I don't know if you get what I'm saying. This explains it TRIPLE BASE TECHNOLOGY complete video - YouTube

I don't know. If you're trying to tell him to learn on something hard then don't give him the bataleon as that takes away the teaching moment (hard takedowns from catching an edge

Plus with rocker and hybrid here to stay. he could probably ride reverse or hybrids for the rest of his life.
