The skate banana is the most amazing snowboard you can have. Its very playful but can handle high speeds also. I live on the ice coast so i know what ice is, and this board shreds it, the only way that you would know your riding on ice is if you fall on it. The banana is also very forgiving, unlike camber boards. The only way for you to experience this board though is to ride it, and youll love it. The skate banana is the best snowboard for any type of riding that you can get.
