Description: Lib Tech Skate Banana Snowboard
The Lib Tech Skate Banana Snowboard is one of the most awarded boards of all time, and for good reason. This is one of the few boards available that excels at pretty much every type of riding. It has rocker between the bindings, and just a little bit of camber at the tips, resulting in a loose, catch free ride that gives you enough pressure at the ends to charge hard. Magne-Traction edges give you get insane grip even on ice and hard pack. If you are looking for a true one board quiver, strap into the skate banana and find out what all the fuss is about.

The good ole' guys at Mervin (Lib/Gnu) reassure us that the TNT base found on the Lib Tech Skate Banana Snowboard is a sintered base.
This board is an all mountain board. It can be useful in powder, carving on hardpack and still has the pop and surfy feeling of a freestyle board. Keep in mind there are better options if you spend no time in terrain parks and most of your riding time on trails and high speed. This board has a bit of chatter at high speeds but not enough to ever scare me.
This is a reverse camber board so it has a very surfy, freestyle feel to it and lots of pop when you need it.
So what size? Some riders don't like basing it off of your height alone. However, rule of thumb is: your height in inches X 2.54 X 0.88
Some say the board should be between your collar bone and chin. If you are going to
Be riding fast and doing powder runs, you may want it to be even longer ( up to nose/eyes)
If you spend lots of time in terrain parks, shorter is better because it's easier to swing the board around.
I am 5'8 160 lbs and I went with149 narrow.I am very happy with my board. I spend lots of time in terrain parks so I went shorter. I also have a powder board if I want to change things up.
I hope this helps your decision. Also, check the help section of this site to refer to sizing charts. Good luck
The Wide version will say something like 154W. In this case the Wide version has its own page: http://www.the-house.com/9852ltskbstw15zz-lib-tech-snowboards.html Let me know what I can help with.

The Agent is a rad deck that handles everything really well. The Lib Tech Skate Banana Snowboard that can go anywhere and will chow down on anything you feed it, but it will feel much looser/surfy than the cambered Agent because of the BTX profile (Rocker between the feet | Flat/Mild Camber underneather the feet to the contact points).
If you want to a Lib BOard that rides similar to the Agent check out the Lib Tech Hot Knife Snowboard - it has a C3BTX (lifted Mild Rocker with an overall Camber) profile. The Hot Knife is where it's at if you want a very versatile deck with pop and precision.
