BurtonAvenger Ride next years Fastplant. I felt the same way about the current versions as Bambooyah has what I call organic flex and most people are used to inorganic flex due to carbon. Next years is the game changer for sure.

Might be worth a shot

Here's a video where a guy tries to purposely break the board. Not scientific but entertaining lol:

Actually my roommate has that board. He's pretty much a shopaholic, meaning he's bought a skatebanana, a DC ply, a bambooya, a burton custom x, and a jones aviator within 2 years. Don't even let me get started on the pairs of skis or boots he's got.

I've tried the bambooya. It felt underwhelming. Weak and weird pop compared to traditional boards. Too flexible at certain points and doesn't rebound the same way when flexed either. Sure, it's indestructible, maybe. But I feel like I downgraded from a subara WRX to a Kia.

didn't mean to sound smug, just forgot how shitty it is to break a board and realize you just broke a couple hundred dollars. even paying pro-form prices, 3-6 boards add up over a season hah.
