Depends on what you plan on riding with it.

If you're looking to get some jibtastic jibnastiness goings on, then Union Contacts, Ride Betas, K2 Sweaters.

If you want to use it for more than sliding metal and polycarbonate and trees and rocks, then something along the lines of Union Forces, K2 Formulas, Ride SPi's, Rome 390's, or if you're ok with stock forward lean, Burton Cartels.

If you want to use it for hard charging and deep stuff, smack yourself, return it, and get something more suited. Then get a DQ blizzard, and send it to me, cause you'll owe me one. I like the mint oreo one. But if I feel like getting crazy sometimes I'll get a butterfinger one......

if you want a stiffer board than the originial skate banana, just pickup a "Lib Tech Snowboard TRS BTX" (its a stiffer version of the banana, its what im going to pick up im pretty sure)

The SB is really soft in the tip and tail. If you ever use the tail to push through carves you'll notice how soft it really is. Go with the TRS.

Like most people have already said go with the TRS banana its a lot safer for you to buy without trying, but some people really like the SB so I recommend you go and try one because those look like some killer boards. O by the way go on youtube they have a few videos with feedback and demonstrating the SB a few pro riders giving there 2 cents on it. For bindings you can slap on the biscuit binder machines from bent metal they are one of the companies part of Mervin along with lib tech you can get them with a Ginza graphic in yellow and im sure that will look and be great on the SB, but really a lot of people have different opinions on bindings so you have to go research different bindings on the internet, find some feedback, see which one suits your needs and if theres more then one go with your gut and choose which one you feel best with. Anyways I hope this has helped later dude.
