I have been reading tons of reviews and they are almost all extremely positive about the SB, it also got snowboard mags "Best of Test" award. I know it's selling out everywhere and that I can resell it easily if I decide that I don't like it. So I am curious why are you sorry.

HAHA HAHA HAHAHA best of test HAHAHAHAHAHAHA FUCKING PRICELESS. Almost 90% of those reviews are from weekend warrior try hards that have ridden like 2 boards in their life time. That board is fucking weak.

How did you go from "All in all I was far happier with this version than the one I previously rode" in your review to "That board is fucking weak."

Seems like a pretty extreme shift. Could you explain a bit more what suddenly made it fucking weak?

Only thing I was happier with it was how they changed the flex pattern and tweaked the MTX. I rode one of the first generations the first time that one was like gen 5 or 6 if I remember correctly they corrected a few things I hated. The only thing that board excells at is in pow when the base of it forms a hull like shape and allows the floatation to be better. Every where else that board is under performing. Take it in the halfpipe and try to push off the tail and it folds, go off a big jump it folds, drop a big cliff it folds.

Its a hype driven board that everyone buys in.

The only thing the Skate Banana is good for is a wall decoration, I agree with Burton Avenger it is a hype driven board. I rode my buddies last season for a few park runs and off of big jumps the board just folds.

i actually think its an ugly board, i just wanted to get it due to the good reviews
maybe everyone is smokin crack and i will hate it, but i considered that when purchasing knowing that i can easily resell it
