im 5 10 and about 140 pounds and im wondering if the bannana is the best board for me because i have heard bannas are not the best for large jumps but i am kinda a rider who goes all over the park what should i do???

Banana boards are fine for jumps. I'd say the Skate Banana can be used all over the mountain and excels in the park.

Banana's are not good for large jumps where you spin. Or if you go really fast.

They tend to wash out or overspin if you don't land perfectly. But if you're doing something under 30 foot, and maybe just slow spins, it's not that bad. But I can do a ground 180 at high speeds and with a stiff camber board it locks on to stop your rotation. The banana tends to be less stable and can wash out more easily. But it's more forgiving so it will overspin instead of putting you on your face like the stiff camber board (which happened to be a Lib Tech Dark Series).
