I mainly cruise on groomed runs. I'm getting a little bored with that I want to transition into buttering and some park stuff. Is the skate banana a good board to use for quickly learning tricks? If so, what is an ideal size? I'm 5'10" 230 lbs size 10.5 boots. Yes, i'm a fat man!
The skate banana is a great park board, you are a big guy so you should go with the 159, the only problem with that is its gonna be ok in the park but kinda small for anything else
I picked up the 159 wide about a month ago and absolutely love it. I am 5'11", 210 Lbs, with 10.5 boots. EXCELLENT board for progressing at presses and butters, rips up the park, and the Magne-traction lets you cruise the groomers with ease. you keep it on an edge and even when the mountain's iced over you'll be able to ride. I went with the wide so I wouldn't have to worry about toe drag, but you could go with the normal width with your feet ducked out a little and you should be fine. the 10.5 is right on the edge where you could go ether way, so it's more of a personal preference.
