here's a question that maybe I should have went with before asking about the Skate
Banana.. What's the best shape to ride? I'm still trying to figure out the difference between rocker and cambered but I think I got it. I am an all mountain boarder so far, with little park but I do like hitting the occasional jumps on the sides of the runs. I'm hearing good things about GNU and of course Burton, but after thinking about it and reading what everyone is saying, I may buy new or last years model. I have bindings, and boots, although I will get new ones eventually. I don't want to spend over $300 for a board, but I want something that I can have a lot of fun hitting all of the mountain, having a lot of control and being satisfied for a couple years.
