Plucked from a different tree.

The time for multi-colored all-mountain freestyle fun has come. Some believe the Lib Tech Skate Banana BTX Snowboard in Assorted Colors was foretold by ancient cave drawings scrawled by primitive shredders many eons ago, some believe the colorful Skate Banana was planted by aliens and just now discovered, and some believe cosmic mutant apes brought the Banana from the future. One thing is for certain: the Banana is high in BTX technology and shredtassium so you can get loose but have your pop too. 

  • Banana Tech is built with a rockered platform between the feet, a flat section under the inserts, and a mild camber toward the ends
  • The result of the Banana Tech is freestyle-centric pressure between the feet and a catch-free feeling at the furthest contact points
  • Magnetraction technology places extra contact points along the edge, creating a serrated knife effect for optimum traction on all types of snowpack including ice and crud
  • H-Pop wood-alloy core uses rocker-specific tapering to harmonize with the reverse-camber shape to increase pop without interrupting the forgiving flex
  • Power Transfer Internal Sidewalls reinforce the sidewalls with an internal 90-degree wall built to resist and absorb sidewall, edge, and core-damaging impacts
  • Twin geometry rides even going both ways, which delivers a skate-like feel designed for all terrain
  • Transworld Snowboarding Magazine Good Wood Award repeat winner
  • Graphics vary and are picked by size, not color—we cannot guarantee a certain color

I'm 6'1" and about 150, how would a 153 work for me, too short?

Responded on

Well, I'm 5'5" and have the 152 and my boyfriend who is 5'8" rides the 156. Unless you're strictly riding in the park, I'd opt for something a little longer.

i'm 5'9 and 160lbs 9.5boots size, what size sould i get?

Responded on

It looks like the only one in stock right now is the 154, which would work if you are more of a park rider. For more of a freestyle board (and more versatile), go with the 156, and for powder or all-mountain, I'd recommend the 159.

well where should i start?
This board is flexible enough to hit rails and butter AND stiff enough to hit big mamma jumps!!
The new grapics are not to my liking for puting on stickers ,but what the heck this board is so nice i love it anyways!
ALLWAYS buy the bananas at the end of the season because they are very cheap then.

Awesome board.

I'm 5'5" and ride this in a 152. The rocker camber is awesome in up to about 8" of powder for me. Obviously a longer board based on my height would perform better in powder. But in that length, this thing is awesome. Fun in moguls, shallow pow, park, does it all. Highly recommended.

What happened to Sintered base

They claim Sintered on the manufacture sticker on the board but this board comes with what they call TNT (extruded) base. They argue TNT is better than sintered but the bottom line is that it dings easily and it's slower than sintered. I had the same board 08-09 season and it was good old sintered base. I'm not looking forward to unstrapping on the flatter spot this spring. It's unfortunate that as the sales go up meterial used degrade. C'mon Mervin! Stick to what have got you here.

Very Happy

I bought this board after my Ride Machete cracked on me. I live on the East Coast in NJ so most of what I ride is ice but we do get our fair share of chest deep powder. I also ordered from the assorted colors and received an orange/black.

Icy Conditions:
Magnetraction cuts right into the ice like its not even there. Muuuuch better than any boards I have ridden including the machete.

It seems to have slightly less immediate pop than my machete but the pop is much more controlled. I was able to hop onto rails and hit the larger jumps no problem.

Awesome just awesome. The banana just floats.

Its my favorite all around board to date and I am a die hard Mervin Industries believer now!

Do you have any sizes with the blue/black deck?

Responded on

The color of the board is based on its length.

Timothy and Laura,

The colors are actually not size specific. We have carried all colors in all sizes and the boards ship randomly. 'Cause, who cares what your board looks like? Just go ride.

im sorry to ask, it might seem stupid to ask but it is unclear, if i purchase the assorted, do i get 6 boards or, i just get one, it just might not seem true

What does Assorted mean? Six different colors on the picture but only one option to order?


Best Answer Responded on

Graphics vary and are picked by size, not color. There isn't a way to select any particular color because of the way they are stocked. There is a chance you will receive any one of those colors (think of a giant snowboard grab bag).

That Sh*t is Skate Bananas

I've ridden almost every manufacturer with the exception of Mervin...until I bought the 2013 skate banana. Honestly, I've been eyeing Libtech from afar for many years. Recently, my 2012 StepChild Powder sucks board went out of service, forcing my hand.

The SB takes my ride to the next level for sure (All mountain Summit County, CO vs. hard pack East Coast vs. street sessions in the park). It locks on rails, shreds powder and ice and looks better than your ex-gf on your arm. The only problem I had was washing out some big air jumps where I may have landed on the Powder Sucks boards.

I've paired the board with Union Contact Pro's and 32 boa's = a good day. Thx Lib!

Great Board

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Really this is a great board. I have had it for three seasons now and have taken it up about 80 times and I don't have anything bad to say. Its an all around good board and I don't think I could go without the Magnetraction and the rocker. It works great and its made in the US and my home state of Washington.

Fun Fun Fun

This is the most fun and playful snowboard I have been on. Loved it for small to medium size park features. Really fun for cruising all mountain and, great float in pow! A little bit thin at the waist for my 11.5 boots, minor toe drag was occasionally an issue. If you have big feet try the wide model. 5 of 10 is accurate for the flex. If you want to start riding park, or want a park board to take it to the next level buy a skate banana!

How can I select a certain collor for the skate bannana?

Responded on

As far as i know there is no way to pick a color for your skate banana, once ordered they will ship you a random color of whatever they have in stock for the size you selected. IMO dog funk needs to do a little more work to clock their inventory so you can choose your color, otherwise they will lose my skate banana business!

Base material is wrong. Its TNT
