I have the 08/09 model and I stopped riding my Custom X because I love this board so much. I did a lot of research before I bought the board, and after the first ride, I never turned back. I admit it can get a bit squirrely if you don't watch your edge but if you are an aggressive rider, then this shouldn't be a problem. The next board I get will definitely be another Banana or possibly the GNU Park Pickle, which is the same tech. But if you haven't ridden a banana yet, you haven't really ridden yet.
Great for Park, Pow, and anything you can imagine.
