Default Skatebanana Review by me

I'm assuming all you kooks are waiting for my Skatebananananana review since none of you knew I got one.

I got the '12 154 paired it with some Burton Customs. (I might hate burton boards, but I lovvve their bindings)

about me: I've been riding since Damien Sanders tweaked in hard boots, MBHC, before Jamie Lynn had a pro model. I ride a Dark Series C2 161 for pow and big mountains, but I wanted a smaller board for Big Bear trips.

The conditions were packed pow, it snowed 2 days before and was super sunny out.

1st: all you fucking kooks that say magnetraction is catchy or hooky, enough with that shit, you fucking suck if you think that

I was worried if this board could still fly without chatter with the banana rocker. I flew down the mountain just as fast as I do on my Dark, with no worries, I was impressed.

Jumping, since it was my first day of the season, I ain't gonna lie I rolled up a few windows on the first couple jumps. Once I got my air legs and avoided the millions of kids in the park I felt damn good off jumps, I liked the flex of it compared to my stiff Dark Series.

The board is awesome can't wait to take it to Tahoe. Now all we need is snow in Tahoe!!@!@!#%#@!#$@%#$%!

Magnetraction isnt for everyone but i totally agree with the OP. I never felt it to be to catchy on my 09 Rossi One Mag. Everyone on this site seems to love Neversummer so i jumped on the bandwagon and picked up a Proto Ct. I actually find it to be far more catchy than my Rossi. I ride on the ice coast by the way.

Its not catchy, it grabby. There's a difference. *sticks tongue out, then swirls whiskey*

Its grabby during your turn and when you exit. If you like it, fine, but it's there, and I hate.

Oh and what a great "review" haha. All the best from your friendly interwebz rival.


Agree on bindings though... Riding reflex Missions with a softer blend Cartel highback (probably what the 2013 mission restricteds will be). I love em.

Hello Newman, I mean Nivekl!!!... I don't know what you are talking about calling it grabby?? It carves perfect and holds it's edge like no other board I've owned? But what do I know I've only been riding 20 some odd years. You know where my love is....Mervin

Oh and the bindings are sick!





ps I was waiting for your response hehehee

So is there ever going to be an actual review or was it just a pretense to make a thread about Magnetraction and lib-tech?

What do you want to know? The board is sick. What else needs to be said?
