The Lib Tech Skate Banana BTX snowboard hasn't changed much since it flipped the industry on its head five years ago, so rather than mess with the winning formula, it's offered in assorted colors. That's good for you, because it makes it way less likely that you'll see a thousand people riding the same killer deck. OG Banana Tech rocker makes the ride downright telepathic. Magne-Traction edges give you get insane grip even on ice and hardpack. It's already won about a million awards for being awesome. Better yet, the people who build them are eco-conscious and shred more days a season than should be allowed. Strap into a banana and find out what all the fuss is about.
The Skate Banana is built on Lib's BTX rocker profile. Basically, that means that there's rocker between the bindings, while the tip and tail have the slightest bit of camber. The result is a loose, catch free ride that gives you enough pressure at the ends to charge hard. It gets better with Magne-Traction edges, which place seven strategic bumps along the edges. The bumps are bigger between the feet, which concentrates most of the grip there for a ride feeling that's more like a skateboard and less like standing on some old timer's skis. Plus it's a true twin, for unrestricted switch shredding.
The H Pop core uses fast growing, sustainably harvested wood for a board that's light, and snappy. Power Transfer internal sidewalls crank up the durability, and they're buffered by UHMW external sidewalls for impact resistance. The Teflon infused TNT base holds up to jibbing and runs fast even when you forget to wax it for a few days. Best of all, you can rest easy knowing that your snowboard was built with eco-friendly materials by snowboarders with jobs.

I'm around 6'1 180 and have a size 12 boot, would it be adiveseable to get the skate banana wide or would this one be fine
I would recommend going with the wide since you have a rather large boot size. Typically I suggest going wide if your boots are larger than a 10.5 so that you dont get any dreaded toe or heel drag. The last thing you want is to lose an edge cause your boots are too big for your board.
The best board

I had this board for several years now, I had a 151, and now I change it for a 149 and it rocks!! Love the floating sensation in powder and the magna traction does the trick during those icy days. You�ll never catch an edge and the pop is fantastic at the park
This Board is BANANAS!
On my second Banana I decided to step it up a notch and try a 156 instead of the 52 I was rocking before and same great feel. This board never fails in any weather from the deepest of the deep to the Icy ice baby. The Magne traction is always nuts. Keeps you going like a smooth criminal with a nice stable control and the pop and flex is great for slaying that dragon in the park. You can take this board anywhere and always be satisfied. Just an all around great all mountain board!

Do you guys have the Yelllow/Blue in a 145, because Lib techs website has it in 145cm but they do not have the option to pick it in Yelllow/Blue. They just have Assorted colors, Stealth, and Yellow. Weird because they clearly show all the colors but only give you 3 to pick from. Check it out for your self http://www.lib-tech.com/snowboards/skate-banana/
Hey Brenden, I took a look and it only provides 3 options because for the Skate Banana the color you can choose are Yellow, Stealth and Assorted. Since it is an assorted item we can't promise you will receive a certain color. Its just a random color out of the options shown in the picture. Hope this helps. Let us know if you need anything else.
These boards are fun
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
I rode one of these a few years ago and had a great time on it. was super flexy and responsive and was a blast in the terrain park. I would not consider this board a beginner board, although it is not restricting for beginners.
