Andrew's Bio

My 3rd season of riding and I am addicted. I am not your typical rider though. I think I am one of the few 39 yr old riders hitting jumps and jibs.

Helmet fits great and looks great (well about as good as a helmet can look). The padding inside isn't thick at all. It's thin yet comfortable. There could be a few more vents in my opinion since I can see how warm it will get on a bluebird day, but other than that, I love it. Also, the earpads have a zipper so you can open them and drop in ear phones. You don't have to get the RED earphones. I actually used some headphones I had and dropped those in and they work great.

I got my wife a pair and we ended up returning them because she said that they gave her no tailbone protection at all. According to the d3o website, this material can withstand impact from a hammer on a watermelon. But for some reason it still hurts when you fall on your tailbone.
The main purpose of impact shorts is for tailbone protection and these fail at that.

I have the 08/09 model and I stopped riding my Custom X because I love this board so much. I did a lot of research before I bought the board, and after the first ride, I never turned back. I admit it can get a bit squirrely if you don't watch your edge but if you are an aggressive rider, then this shouldn't be a problem. The next board I get will definitely be another Banana or possibly the GNU Park Pickle, which is the same tech. But if you haven't ridden a banana yet, you haven't really ridden yet.
Great for Park, Pow, and anything you can imagine.
