skate banana, w/ burton freestyles?, good set up for a beginner

Responded on

Because the skate banana has magne traction and reverse camber it can be a very unique board to get used too and can take some time. I would recommend a regular camber board with no magnetraction for starting out. After that you can decide from their if a board like this is for you. Just a thought^I couldnt disagree more^, no offense to the OP, the BTX makes the board much more manageable and versatile.... and jibbing nature of it makes it much more forgiving - doesnt catch edges as easily and its very flexible.... its my gf's first year riding and she tries to steal my nana every time she goes w/out me... she loves it, its a great first board... beware though, people will expect great things if they see you on 1 of these....
