Intermediate+ freeride boarder
Jeffrey's rating of this snowboard:
Considering his boarders profile:
"Powder snow is highly addictive to me, play and surf the virgin snow without extremes. Adrenaline takes over quickly and that results sometimes in impossible acrobatic crashes. All experiences will improve my skills though."
Favourite Powder - Park boards:
1. Burton Custom Flying V
2. LibTech Attack Banana
3. LibTech Skunk Ape
More to come
The Libtech Attack Banana is the perfect playful, all-wheather, all terrain freestyle board! Loved it! I'm sure that for many riders like me this will be the perfect allround board. The Libtech Attack Banana gives exactly the right feedback for my style. I like to play with the terrain without extreme speed carving. LibTech made this board versatile enough to perform like that. Not too extreme, not too demanding. I like a good comfortable ride. Attack Banana delivers, so a 5 star board.
Perfect for my level
I found this board very playful and easy to turn. It was stable on high speeds, even with the ginormous rocker in this board! This is giving you great float in pow and amazing grip on ice sheets though. I absolutely loved this board and almost trade it for my own board. If I have to make a negative note on this board is that hardened experts might be bored with this board soon, since it does not make you work hard for it.
LibTech about the Attack Banana
"The all terrain quiver killer. The Attack Banana EC2 snowboard has enough pop and stability to stomp anything, kills the park, carves the groomers and ice and effortlessly floats the pow.", says LibTech. I didn't test this board in the park, but other then that I found the brand's description right on the money!
Libtech Skunk Apes: The Skunk Apes had similar playfulness in the board, just a little less aggressive and direct.
Burton Custom Flying V. I The only thing setting these boards apart is the amazing print on the Attack Banana.
Arbor Roundhouse is also a very easy and playfull board with great grip.
