Basti They're all good boards for you. The TDF is a bit special because of the positive camber. If you like that, go for it. Other than that, pick the narrowest one of the choices you mentioned and you will be fine. The Trouble is a tad softer than the Greats but not too much of a difference.

I own a Pick your Line and a Great Boobs of History and I love them both. As I said, for your small feet I believe YES is the best way to go. Super solid boards, playful and a forgiving camber profile. If I were you I'd try to get a Trouble or maybe a TDF if you want it a bit more aggressive (super narrow camber board). If you need more in-depth reviews, please check thegoodride.com or similar review sites.
Okay, I think I've got it know.
Do you think that the trouble/tdf would be a better choice than the greats/basic?
Reading the specs/info it seems to me that the latter would suit me better?Thoughts?

I have never ridden a board with that type of sidecut but snowolf seemed to endorse it earlier in the thread and other people say it works.
While I think the theory for different sidecuts for toe and heel side (Note: this does not necessarily mean asymmetrical sidecuts, just different ones) has some merit, it really made no difference to me in practice. Tried it on the Riders Choice and actually preferred riding the board the 'wrong' way around. Maybe I have grown so used to (over-)compensating for the same sidecut on both toe and heel edge that I need to 'unlearn' first...

The banana was a great board a few years ago when rocker was still new but not only in my opinion is it kind of outdated by now.

cav0011 pros can do anything on any board for the most part.


anyone i have had 2 of them get major core shots, one i also cracked teh tail on (was defective though got a refund) and the third broken/compressed edge with cracking on the base.

Now it could be me, but i have ridden many other brands and it never happened with those others.
