Alright, so first off im 5'8 135 pounds. I'm still growing and the doctors say i wont be more than 6 feet. With that out of the way I've been looking at mainly two boards for this season: the lib tech skate banana and the gnu riders choice with btx. I've heard good things about both, but can't decide which board to get. Here's where things get complicated. With the skate banana i'd have to get a 152 cm, which i could possibly outgrow quickly. With the gnu i could get a 154.5 which would allow me to grow into it. I ride the whole mountain, but am looking to focus on more park this year. I talked to someone from backcountry.com and they said the banana technology takes away from carving and that it doesn't perform too well on groomers. That destroyed everything I had in my head and now im confused. Help me please!
also i was looking at the 32 lashed boots and Union Contact bindings....any comments on those would be appreciated as well.
