Teach your kid to say “no” to camber.

This 115cm board is for my 8-yr-old. She's been skiing for awhile, her first snowboard ride was on the B-Pro Mini. Great board for learning. Flex is good for kids, not too stiff or soft, perfect (first bought a different board elsewhere - cheaper, but the thing was as stiff as my board). I believe the Banana -BTX - really helped out the learning process, it can be "skatey", so she was able to get her toe side turns down very fast - first day. As she gets better, having the BTX will only be more of an asset (I've got a Lib Tech with BTX, and its awesome). BTX rocks.
My first board was a Burton Ginger 2008 great learning board but....I did a lot of research of Lib Tech after watching "That's it that's all" and found out about Magne traction and banana technology. I had to find out if what they were claiming could be true. I bought the Gnu B-Pro Mini 135cm because I am a petite woman (5'1" and 100 lbs) and the staff here at Backcountry advised me that if I wasn't a park rider this would be a great board for me. I can't explain how fun this board is. Yes, I fell a few times but that's part of learning. I must admit I didn't seem to catch my rails as much as I did with my old board...reverse camber and magne traction....I am a believer. I am a beginner and I was doing tail presses down the mountain. This board is amazing and so much fun. Look for BTX on your next board.
