Skate Banana is for the park. I've tried, and it sucks outside of it. On the otherhand, I've had several Rider's Choice MTX boards, and they worked great everywhere.

yeah dude thats a bit long. i have a 162 gnu 11 up from last year. my friend has a riders choice. they ride pretty much identical. the magne traction is sick. super flexy for an all mountain board, rides really well. everything i've heard about the skate banana makes me want one tho. i'd recommend the skate banana.

cant get much better than lib, rocker, and magne traction.

Hey all, so i got the gnu rc in 157.5 and took it out this wknd. I had a very hard time adjusting to it so i took it back to the store and they told me i had the wrong binding for the board. I used the Burton Co2 bindings and was told those are too stiff for my skill level and suggested i go with something a little more flexible like the burton f1s. What you guys think? Do i need to change to a more flexible binding?

If you're just the average rider, which you clearly are, what makes you think you'll be dialed in on a board after just a few runs? Ride it a few days, play with your binding angles & stance, and then make a decision.
