It has a enough pop for the park even as an all mountain crusher. A little heavier than I'd like, but not so much that it's restricting. Great board for a great price.

My step son has only one season under his belt, I think from talking to my oldest son who has boarding since he was
# years old this board will fit him

LibTech is one of the few snowboard brands that are still setting design benchmarks.
Matthew B on Nov 20, 2015
I've had my only board for 6 years now. Wanted to upgrade to a quality board without spending 500+ dollars. I know lib tech is a terrific company, and I've read nothing but excellent reviews on this board.
Gary F on Oct 16, 2015
After much market research, it was apparent that the Skate Banana was the only board that had every feature I needed. I ride East Coast, so Magne-Traction was a must, but outside of that I wanted a park board that could ride the whole mountain. This was the obvious choice.

I'm 5'8'', 155lbs, boot 10,5 .Riding 75% groomer, 10% park and 15% powder. What size do you recommend?
Maximilian on Jan 17, 2015
Of course much of this decision will be your own opinion. Lib Tech suggests that you will be able to excel with any board between a 152 and 156. I would choose the 154 myself. With a waist of 25.3 your 10.5 boots should be good. These are excellent boards that would be a great choice for your style.
I am a fairly new rider, only started two seasons ago. I am split between the Lib Tech Skate Banana and the Burton Custom Flying V board. I am using an old used board that was passed on to me by my buddy and it's time for an upgrade. I want an all around board, as we typically do groomed runs, but I love to get into the powder when I can and also would like to progress into some park without having to buy a new board. So something that can handle it all. Which board would you guys recommend?
Brady F on Nov 19, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Thank you for the response Josephine.

Brady - both would work great for those purposes. They tear all around the mountain. The Skate Banana is a twin, whereas the Flying V is directional shaped. The Flying V has a sintered base as well. The Skate Banana's base is extruded.

For a newer rider like you, I would probably recommend the Lib Tech.
Will the gnu pysch rear entry bindings fit on this board?
A shopper on Feb 22, 2015
Both the Psych and this Skate Banana use the standard 4-hole mounting system, and will be compatible.
I'm at a brick wall between two boards. I am a very experienced rider, I love to lap the park all day everyday. I'm going to purchase a new setup from you guys for this season but I'm torn between the Skate Banana, and the Capita DOA. I live on the East Coast and try to make it out west at least once a year if I'm lucky. Which board would you recommend?
John M on Oct 22, 2014

The Lib Tech Skate Banana is going to be awesome on hard pack(Magnetraction), powder(full rocker) smaller jumps and general park use.
Is this the narrow version? I'm 5'10" and 200lbs. What size should I be riding here?
Kyle P on Jan 13, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Hey man. This is the regular version of the 2015 Skate Banana. We only have it in stock in 152, 154, and 156. The way I see it you have a couple options... You could upgrade to the 2016 Skate Banana Wide - Where a 159W would probably be good. Or you could check out other options. I'd be happy to assist and give further suggestion, just let me know!
How well does this board handle rails in jumps?
Austin K on Jan 27, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Sorry but I'm to old for the terrain park...body does not heal fast enough! But I've tested it across all other terrain, bumps, in the trees, steeps, powder, pack, and it handles amazingly. Love the board and I'm sure it will perform well in the park, because after all, that is what Lib Tech is really all about.
If I'm 5'6, weigh 165-170lbs, and wear a 10.5 boot size, what size board do you guys recommend?
Chris on Jan 20, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I'm almost identical in size to you and ride a 154 Skate Banana. I have several boards but this is the one that gets ridden the most. I ride a pretty good mix of park/powder/groomers depending on the day. I've got an older 151 that's a little sketchy at speed and on landings but still a good board. Hope this helps.
Underneath the display of the board, it says base color may vary. With that being said, does choosing the color i want (blue) even mater?
A shopper on Mar 30, 2015
BEST ANSWER: I don't think it does matter because I was hoping for the blue on the top of the board and didn't get it. Luckily the color pattern that it came in was something I liked.
when is a wide board needed?
A shopper on Mar 24, 2016
When your boot size is 11.5 or larger (roughly) you will want to start looking at a Wide deck to prevent toe and heel drag.
if i get this board at 152cm what will be the color of the snowboard because id like to have my bindings matching it?
Austin K on Feb 3, 2016
BEST ANSWER: There is an option to choose a color. although they may not have a 152 in the color you want. for instance i wanted a purple 156 or 154 but lib tech only mad that board in a 148. or The house may not have the color you want. if you are looking at the yellow and green banana it is more yellow than green
what is the difference between 152 and 153w i wear a size 9 shoe.?
mrelemantor on Dec 24, 2015
The W indicates a Wide version of a snowboard. A wide version is designed to allow a person with size 11.5 + feet to ride without dragging their feet (it can truly ruin ones day). You have a size 9 boot... get a normal width (the 152cm) length snowboard. The wide version will be a little stiffer, have a slightly different flex, and require a little more effort to corner. The result is that if you do not need a Wide board.... you do not want one.
I'm also torn between the Lib Tech Skate Banana and the Burton Process Flying V....Looking to spend most of my time in the park, but also want something that'll do fine all over the mtn...which of these would you recommend?
tj_albee on Nov 17, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Both are great boards, that's a really tough question.

The Lib Tech Skate Banana will feel a little looser while riding flat base, but it'll grip better on hard snow because of the magne-traction edges.
im 6'0 with a boot size of 12 and ride 83% park. what size board should i get?
A shopper on Feb 23, 2015
BEST ANSWER: If I was you I would get the max size hoard. I'm the same height as you, I weigh about 180 and ride a lot of park as well. I got the 66 or 64 or whatever the biggest one was and I love it. My favorite board I've ever had. The pop on it is pretty sick.
Can i get a shipping pass to Latvia ?
Ervins K on Sep 1, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Good Day Ervins,
We are happy to ship to Latvia, however we cannot ship Lib Tech's items internationally.
So I am in the process of getting a new board. I've been riding a Burton Blunt 156W the past 2 years and I spend about 60% in the park, but I do ride all mountain a decent bit. I'm 6' 155 lbs, and have size 11.5 boots (big feet suck). I'd like to get away from wides to get some more flex and pop out of my board. Is toe/heel drag gonna be a problem for me? I'm torn between the Skate Banana and the GNU Smart Pickle. I'm completely open to other recommendations too. Thanks!
Rogan P on Feb 26, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Well the Skate Banana and the Smart Pickle are both great first off. You ever tried out a non-wide board?
I'm torn between skate banana and Rossignol Rocknrolla. Which should I pick for my first board? I've been borrowing friends' crappy boards
A shopper on Feb 7, 2016
It will obviously depend a little on your own preference and style, but as a general use snowboard you really cannot beat a Lib-Tech Skate Banana. They are outstanding. A good board to learn on and you can advance with. Do you know what size you need?
I'm 5'8'', 165lbs, boot size 9.5. Riding 80% groomer and 20% powder, and just started learning buttering tricks. Would a 152 work, or should I go for a longer board?
A shopper on Feb 3, 2016

a 152 would definitely work! For the Lib Tech Skate Banana Snowboard, we only offer a 152 and 154. The 154 may give you just a little bit more control, but it all depends on your preference.
Hope this helps!
how long will this be on sale ?
Laura S on Dec 29, 2015
This will remain on sale into a January a bit. The Skate Banana is a classic and outstanding snowboard by-the-way.
Is this a narrow board?
Samuel T on Dec 15, 2015
No. This Lib Tech Skate Banana is a regular width snowboard.... it is not particularly narrow either.

Can you ship it to Russia?
A shopper on Nov 10, 2015
Currently we cannot ship to Russia..... I apologize. If you have friends or family in the US we could ship there, and they can send it on to you.
Hey, I'm 5'9" 195 pounds. I'm an intermediate level and ride both east and west coast (more west coast at the moment). I am wondering if this is the board for me and if so what size I should get? Any comments on the Magni Traction would be helpful because I don't fully understand it. Thanks!
Ryan C on Nov 5, 2015
First, the difference between a regular edge and the magne-traction is like a regular knife edge v. a serrated knife. Here: It will grip on hard snow and ice superbly... it will have little effect in a powder situation. If you are looking for an all-mountain Lib-Tech board that can ride a little power too... look here:
So you guys have a layaway program??
Jimmy M on Nov 2, 2015
I apologize... no. You can opt to purchase your items through Pay-Pals however. You can then set up a payment schedule!
I where a size 11 in boot. would this board fit my boot?
what up on Oct 3, 2015
You can ride a regular width snowboard... especially if you 'V' your feet a little. Specifically this Skate Banana will work (it is close). If you start getting to 11.5 or 12 boots you will then want a wide board.
