A surprising board, that has a very good reputation that is well deserved. On paper, the specs make it sound like a beginner board, but it is marketed as a board that is good for everyone from beginners to advanced riders.
Normally that doesn’t make any sense, but in a weird way it works for the Skate Banana.
With a medium flex, and the Original Banana profile, it is soft but not too soft, and loose without being too loose. Magne-traction is important on reverse camber boards like this so you still have good edge hold.
