arsenic0 Ya i think your on the right track..either a Bataleon or NS board would do fine.
I have a NS SL-R and love it, but i dont do'd want an Evo-R or Revolver-R for that...
NS boards are typically pretty stiff compared to other boards, but thats what allows them to go out of the park @ speeds that noodles couldnt do.

laz167 Well if you can't wait til September for a 2010 Banana you don't have to. Seems that Marty's Board shop an online store already has new 2010 Libs. So if your ready to drop $500-$700 on new boards now you can.

I bet you could get an RC board thats stiff as hell,
Next year burtons making 3 rockers: V rocker (all mountain), r or some alphabet rocker(speed and pow), and party rocker for park rats.

RidePowder reverse camber doesnt change the flex of a board. I bet you could get an RC board thats stiff as hell,

so that preconcieved notion just got its ass whooped..

anyways NS R boards are solid, that have a 3 stage camber which is pretty nice and very unique, Ive only heard amazing things about it.

Bataleon is a regular camber with elevated edges just before the contact points to the ends only. so its got spoon edges kind of without it being rounded... it has 3 planes of base at the tip and tail with an angled transition so you rock onto a new plane...

I own a bataleon.. its amazing.... but if you want to look like every other kid in the park... get a 'nana... or if you want extremely soft RC board, get a signal park rocker

uamaukeeaokaina could you tell me a little bit about how the bataleon and never summer boards differ from the banana? i want something pretty soft, which is why i like the reverse camber. but could you tell me why the bataleon and ns boards blew you away?

jjin ive got a 09' banana and the only reason i picked one up is because it was on sale for $280. i really dig the rocker designs ride. i also have a ns evo r and i would never jib on it because its jump and freeride board. i thrashed the banana this season and it held up well. i do everything with it. i ride pow, jib, jump, it does it all and it does it well.

if you really want it itll be hard to find for whats left of this season's bananas.

but if you want something thall blow you away and make you think "fuck this board changes the game" get a bataleon or ns evo r.

if you want a board for jibbing and whatever, a banana will be fine.

fuzzysnowboard The rome pushers coming out too. They will probably be cheaper than a 2010 bannana.

i buy boards based on how they look and not on how they ride too! lets go to sportchek together one day and pick out matching setups
