Most fun board I have ever ridden
It seems like Skate banana by all the tech and stuff so you could probably check the reviews of a SB and get a full review of the board. Top sheet dings easily , after my first 5 runs I noticed a peel coming from top left corner. Did not do any rails, just buttered and did some spins. Kept riding, everything was smooth and glued it after at home. I am 190 lbs, 6'2 with size 11 boots, 156 seems like a perfect fit for my riding style which is park. Such a fun board but still versatile enough to take anywhere on the mountain, just makes you want to discover new tricks.

Aside from supporting a cool cause, how does this differ from a skate banana? It looks to me like a skate banana with a different core and graphics.

BEST ANSWER: whats the difference from the park pickle an this board
if i am 5'3 what size should i get?
greg a on Dec 1, 2014
BEST ANSWER: Assuming you weigh about 110-120 lbs, probably a 143-145 or so.
So does this board ride both powder and park?

And i'm 5'11 in height and 130 pounds and still growing very drastically. What size of board should i get?
A shopper on Nov 3, 2014
BEST ANSWER: The Lib Tech Gateway is full rocker so it will do awesome in powder and it was specifically built for park so that will be great.

152cm is going to last you a few years.
is this an all mountain board?
celeb on Mar 29, 2016

the Lib Tech Gateway is a freestyle board for intermediate to advanced level riders. That being said, you can definitely take this board out of the park and ride the other sides of the mountain.
dose the metal edge wrap around the nose an tail?\
Dustin H on Oct 27, 2014
BEST ANSWER: Lib Tech Gateway Snowboard doesn't have a full metal wrap on purpose. It has a slightly lighter swing weight for spinning. But it is built with out metal, especially for easy repair- because the park is really had on boards and and if you hit the tip or tail hard, you can just keep riding, or do a proper repair with epoxy later.
Hi, I'm 6'3 and 225, what size do you think best for me? Been renting for years want to buy a board already. Thanks for your help.
Kainoa C on Apr 17, 2016

At 6'3" and 225 lbs, I can safely assume you have size 11 boots or large. IF that's teh case you'll need a board that's considered to be "wide", which means it should have a waist width of a minimum of 25.8cm.

A board's weight is greatly determined by the rider's weight. 158cm - 164cm woul dbe a good range for you.

The Lib Tech Gateway Snowboard is too short for you. If you'd like to stay within the Lib Tech lineup, check out the 162cm Lib Tech Skate Banana Wide Snowboard HERE:
I am 6' 190 lbs
Will a 156cm be too short?
Andrew J on Oct 9, 2015
BEST ANSWER: In the parks you could squeeze by on the 156cm, but you'll be on the high side of the weight range. If you're planning to use it for all mountain riding the 156cm will be a little too small.
I am 6'0 and 145lbs what size should i get? I was thinking about a 154
ktsniper3 on Nov 1, 2015
You are tall and light... That puts you between boards... but I agree that the 154cm length is going to give you the most versatility.
I am 6' 187 lbs
Is a 156cm Lib Tech Gateway too short for me for All Mtn ?
I don't to the parks just slopes down the Mtn
Andrew J on Oct 9, 2015
BEST ANSWER: The 156cm Lib Tech Gateway Snowboard is designed mostly for park riding, although it can be ridden all over the mountain. That's why the Gateway has shorter sizes, it's meant for riders who spend most of their time in the parks.

You fit on the very high side of the 156cm weight range, especially for a wanting to use the Gateway as an all mountain board.

Check out the Lib Tech Skate Banana, it's pretty similar to the Gateway, but it's more all mountain freestyle oriented. See it HERE:

For the Lib Tech Gateway Snowboard I would get the 149cm length. This is still on the long end of your spectrum.
