  • 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!
