syphabiscuit Don't know about the Blunt. I have the Skate Banana. It revolutionised my riding. (i.e. - doesn't suck) It is amazingly grippy on ice - there is no more effective grip technology than Mervin's.
What sort of park?? Big jumps maybe not either of the two you suggest. Jibbing and buttering are the Skate Banana's strong points. I thought the Evil Twin was a fair bit stiffer than the Skate Banana. For landing bigger jumps and a bit more all mountain freindly maybe the Evil Twin or something like the Never Summer Proto. The Never Summer Evo is a firm forum favourite (nice use of alliteration!) and awesome in the park flexier than the Skate Banana (if you were going for the 56)

I don't know. If you're trying to tell him to learn on something hard then don't give him the bataleon as that takes away the teaching moment (hard takedowns from catching an edge

Plus with rocker and hybrid here to stay. he could probably ride reverse or hybrids for the rest of his life.

legends6spd please do not buy a blunt. i hate that board.
pick up a 156 SB and you'll be one happy canadian

pibimbap It might've changed, but my blunt '08 had some topsheet problems... and I've heard others have had board-splitting problems as well.

But the skate banana is a solid board - rocker + mtraction will have you learning new tricks like nobody's business.

slyder I'm not happy with the way my 13yr old's blunt held up and it was only ridden for 1/2 a season do to season ending injury.
