  • Madeleine McGlinn

    hey there, im 6’4″, size 12 boot and 100kg. I enjoy cruising the mountain but also buttering around a fair bit and hitting up the parks. Would a 162W be suited to someone my size or could i get away with a 159W also? I currently ride a 160W and find that pretty comfortable.

  • Stefan

    Hey, I´m thinking about the banana but i`m still not sure about the size. I`m 1,78m 74kg; strong and athletic build. Shoe size 9.5. 156 cm vs 159 ist the question?

  • Mario Mercier

    Hi, I’m a freestyle rider and my last skate banana was a 149, I weigh 165lbs, my shoe size is 12 and I’m 6′. What would be a good size board for me as I primarily focus on hitting kickers and rails in the park. Thanks!

  • Sam Tagget

    Hi Lib Tech! I just have a question on why if you select Random Assorted Bananas you are not assured which color you will receive. Just a little confused! Thanks! :)

  • http://www.lib-tech.com Lib Tech

    Hi Mario,
    The Skate Banana and the Box Scratcher would be my top two recommendations for you!
    But at 6 feet, 165 lbs and size 12 boots I think you might prefer either the 153W Skate Banana or the 154 Box Scratcher.

  • http://www.lib-tech.com Lib Tech

    Hi Sam,
    The only way to guarantee a ‘Random Assorted’ color is to purchase the board at your local shop–we just ship whatever is on the top of our shelf in the warehouse with our online sales. We realize this is not the most convenient for consumers, though..so for the 15/16 season we do not have ‘Random Assorted’ colors, and each size will have it’s own designated color.

  • http://www.lib-tech.com Lib Tech

    Hello there!
    The 156 is going to feel more playful and maneuverable and the 159 will feel more solid and stable.
    You’ll be able to ride both sizes without any issues, but if you want something for nimble for freestyle and park the 156 will be the best. If you want something to ride fast and in deep snow, go for the 159.

  • http://www.lib-tech.com Lib Tech

    If you love for 160, there’s absolutely no need to size up to a 162W–you’ll be just fine with the 159W.
    In fact, you probably won’t even notice the 1cm difference.

    BUT, if you’ve never ridden anything slightly bigger, you might be stoked on the little bit of extra length.

  • Zachary Siegel

    Hi, I am a beginner snowboarder and am looking to buy my first board. I am 63 inches and 90 pounds. What size Skate Banana would be right for me?

  • http://www.lib-tech.com Lib Tech

    Hi there! The 145 narrow will be the best option for you.
    And the Skate Banana is a phenomenal board for learning.
    You should also check out the Box Scratcher in size 147!

  • youl

    Bonjour, je mesure 1,85m et je pèse 80 kg. Quelle taille de board pour la skate banana en wide me conseillez vous sachant que ça fait que ma deuxième année de snowboard.

  • Nrgetrnl

    Im 5’6″ and 155 lbs, size 8 shoe. Ex skater cruisey butter press kinda guy, not a total park rider but do here and there. Trying to decide between a 149 and 152 banana. Rode a borrowed 152 banana once and loved it.

  • http://www.lib-tech.com Lib Tech

    Hello!
    I’d suggest the 152 for someone your size.
    You could definitely ride the 149, but for cruising, presses and butters you’ll probably appreciate the extra pop of the 152–it will feel more lively!

  • nrgetrnl

    THANKS!

  • nrgetrnl

    Last question… Ive had a pair of Cartels since like 07 and want to upgrade bindings… any opinion on best bindings to pair with a banana?

  • http://www.lib-tech.com Lib Tech

    Just go for something that fits your boots nicely and that’s easy to get on and off–Lib Tech doesn’t make bindings….YET! So we don’t exactly have any specific bindings to endorse or recommend.
    But you’ll probably not want too soft or too stiff of a binding if you want something that you’ll easily be able to butter and press the board with. So go with whatever is comfy and mid-stiffness.

  • Justin Sellers

    Hey lib tech! I saw you mention that for the 15/16 season each size will be assigned its own color vs the random assorted, when does this start and which colors go with which sizes? thanks!

  • http://www.lib-tech.com Lib Tech

    Hey Justin,
    Evo has those puppies up on their site…scope it out for yourself:

  • Chris

    I’m 5’10” and 215 Ibs, size 12 boot. I mainly board east coast garb. in NC but go out west occasionally. Ive always rode a 159W, is that too much board?

  • Eric

    A quandary between Skate Banana, or Banana Magic… I do not ride the park, I stick to greens and easy blue runs at this point… I’m a 5’6″, 155 lb, 36 y/o beginner! (my experience is about 10 days on a flat board). My challenge this year will be keeping up with much more experienced friends. I’ve heard from a number of people that a rocker board would really help me out… but which one? The “Technology” page lists BTX as “least camber effect… easiest to ride” and !BTX! as “dynamic camber effect… easiest to ride”… So which is “easiest” b/w these two?

  • http://www.lib-tech.com Lib Tech

    159W seems like a very reasonable size for you. But I think a 156W could be fun for a more playful freestyle feel!
    If you want a board to ride in the park, or just something that’s really easy to maneuver, you could definitely consider sizing down a bit.

  • http://www.lib-tech.com Lib Tech

    Hi Eric,
    Both boards are awesome and easy to ride, but I would steer you towards the Skate Banana simply because you’re a beginner and you’ll probably be equally satisfied with either model.
    The Banana Magic is a phenomenal board–it’s packed with a bunch of technology and some of our highest end materials. But without much experience riding, you might not notice a lot of it. The Skate Banana will be just as easy (maybe even easier and more forgiving!) to ride as the Banana Magic, but it has a much smaller price tag.

  • Julie Spoth

    I’m 5’6″ and 130lbs and size 7.5 boot. I’ve been riding for 6 years in the northeast – I live in CO now and will be in UT for the winter season. I’m looking for a board that I can learn to ride pow on and freshen up my technique on multiple terrains. What board and size would you recommend me? Thanks!!

  • Emilio

    Ready to order but another urgent size question, sorry. I’m 5 feet 10 175 pounds. UK 9.5 which I think is US 10.5 boot. I was thinking 154…. Is the 154 or 156 regular going to be wide enough for a US 10.5 boot? and which should I go for of the two (154 or 156)? Intermediate. I need help in the park but want to be ok to ride the mountain with this too.

  • http://www.lib-tech.com Lib Tech

    Hi Julie,
    The 148N will be better for a more freestyley feel and the 151N is going to devour the entire mountain and really excel in powder.

  • http://www.lib-tech.com Lib Tech

    Hi Emilio,
    Either size will be great for someone your height, weight and shoe size.
    The 154 will be incredible for the park, and great for all mountain.
    The 156 will be great in the park, but incredible for all mountain.

    So if park is your number one priority, 154.
    If you want to focus on all-mountain, 156.

  • Rocket

    Hi there! I’m 6′ and about 155-160lbs. 8,5 shoe size. I’m begginer and I want to focus on all-mountain. What size of board i need to pick? Thanks.

  • Jay

    Hi Lib Tech. I’m 6′ 2,4 inches, about 175 lb. and 10.5 US Boots. I’m advanced rider focused on all-mountain (75% carving 10% Park 5% Powder). Should I buy 156 oder 159? Thank you

  • Alex

    hi lib tech please help me i want to buy a skatebanana i go very often at the park and the question is 145n whit 10.5 boot is possible to do snowboard? thanks

  • Ekaterina Trofimenko

    Hi, Lib Tech! I’m a girl, 176 sm, 62 kg, 39 or 6-6.5 UK Boots. I’m new rider, focused on all-mountain / freeride. please, advise on size of the board. I’m in between 156 and 156W. thank you!

  • http://www.lib-tech.com Lib Tech

    Hello there!
    Since you’re a new rider, I’d steer you towards the 152–it will provide a solid platform with good edge contact, but still be maneuverable and forgiving to learn on. If you’re really set on a bigger board, go for the 154. But I wouldn’t recommend the 156 for you if you’re a beginner. It will be a lot to control!

  • http://www.lib-tech.com Lib Tech

    Hi Alex,
    Check out the 147 Box Scratcher–it will be a lot more suitable for size 10 boots and it will blow your mind in the park.

  • http://www.lib-tech.com Lib Tech

    Hi Rocket,
    The 156 is going to be a killer board for you to learn and progress with for all mountain riding.

  • http://www.lib-tech.com Lib Tech

    If you’re spending 80% of your time carving or in powder, 159!
    The extra length will provide better edge hold on turns and more float in deep snow.
    Plus, it will still be small enough to maneuver in the park.

  • Varga Tudor

    I’m a beginner .Is this board good for me ?I do 60% carving 25% freestyling and 15% freeriding.
    Thank you

  • http://www.lib-tech.com Lib Tech

    This is a GREAT board for riders of all abilities.
    It’s really progression friendly–the BTX/Banana base contour is fun, easy and forgiving.
    It will blow your bind for carving, park/jib and powder riding.

  • oppo

    Hi there, I’m 5’9 and about 145 lbs with 10.5 US boots, I’m an advanced rider and i’m looking for an all mountain freestyle board. Would the 154 be the right choice for me?

  • http://www.lib-tech.com Lib Tech

    Hi there,
    The Skate Banana is the classic, all-mountain, easy to ride snowboard!
    If you are wanting a playful ride, this is it!
    But, if you classify yourself as more of an aggressive rider you might want to go for something with our C2 base contour as it will offer more power and it will better suit your needs. The T-Rice, Lando Phoenix and TRS are all great options.

    The Attack Banana has a mellow camber underfoot EC2, so that board will have a really awesome blend of playfulness and powerful, and it’s kind of the hybrid of C2 (like the boards I mentioned above) and the Skate Banana.

  • Julia

    Hey Team!
    I’m a girl, 5’11”, 160lbs, boot size 10. I have a 156 board that I rode 100% carving and fast speed. I’m trying to ride park now, but my current board is very stiff (I find..) what’s your recommendation for my new board? I still want to enjoy carving, fast riding, but also have a good park board. I realize there is more selection in men’s boards and I’m not opposed to that. thank you!

  • http://www.lib-tech.com Lib Tech

    Hi Julia!
    The Skate Banana and Box Scratcher are both going to be rad boards to take in the park, but will still perform awesomely in absolutely any terrain!

    BUT, Gnu snowboards also offers a full line of women’s boards–Gnu boards are built by the same folks, in the same factory as Lib Tech. There are some differences in technology, but Gnu boards are UNREAL for freestyle riding. You should check out the Ladies Choice 153.5, Velvet Gnuru 153 or Smart Pickle 152…all of these will be high performance all mountain boards that will really shine in the park.

  • Joe

    Hey Lib Tech Team, Need advice.
    6′ tall, 150-160lbs, with size 10/11 feet. Looking for park specific board to focus on tricks. Have 159 all mountain board but feel its too big. What size should I be looking for, was thinking 153-154?
    Thank you for feedback

  • http://www.lib-tech.com Lib Tech

    153-154 will be awesome for park riding.
    Check out the Box Scratcher, too!

  • Семён Афонин

    Hi Lib Tech, I need your advice. My height 71,65 inches, my weight 148 lb. and 11 US Boots. I ride off-piste, 50% powder, 50% small freestyle, but I do not ride in the park. Advise me the size of the snowboard. Thank you

  • http://www.lib-tech.com Lib Tech

    Hello!
    If you’re not riding park and you spend a lot of time in powder, you might want to go with a bigger board.
    Probably the 159 or 156.
    And with size 11 boots I’d probably recommend a wide board…so 156W or 159W.

    The 159 will be phenomenal in powder and the 156 will have a more playful freestyle feel–the reduced length will be easier to maneuver.

  • A_P_Ecall
