My skate banana is my 7th board and it does well in all elements for me great for the ice/groomers here in the lower northeast and rides great when I take for my yearly trip to vermont in the powder. I am not a punk kid on here just saying a board is great because of it's name or graphics but, because the board handles much better then my previous boards I have ridden.
Board: LIB Tech SKate Banana
Bindings: UNION Force
Boots: ThirtyTwo TM Two
Bataleon's are for sure the best boards I've ridden...whether they be park or freeride, the Triple Base just makes snowboarding more fun, simple as that. Raised edges keep a fun, loose ride and camber provides pop and control...what more do you want in a board?
