I wanted to give my beginner/novice review of the 2008 Lib-Tech Skate Banana with Magne Traction for Snow Kiting.

I purchased a 2008 Lib-Tech 156 Skate Banana Magne Traction Board and used it for the first time snow kiting a couple days ago. A+++ rating from me being a novice snow kiter and a beginner snowboarder.

Here is a link to the Lib-Tech Site

Mange Traction is the technology that allows it to hold an edge on ice.

Banana Technology adds rocker and flexibility.

This board made a big difference in my snowkiting. It was much more flexible and held an edge when I hit the icy spots on a frozen lake. I highly recommend it for snow kiting, especially in Metro Detroit where our snow fall is minimal each winter. If I can ride on ice with very little snow my winter sessions will double.

I asked some local guys who have been snowboarding & snowkiting for some time before I bought my board and the advice they gave me was great, thanks! From the combined advice I received from these guys I chose the banana option, which is much more flexible and has rocker. Being a beginner the softer board & rocker will reduce my learning curve for snowboarding downhill also. A 159 was recommended for someone my size 200 lbs, but I could not find one, oh I tried. I found a 156 and was told because I am a novice I would not notice any performance difference. I guess in deep power I may lose some performance, but deep power and Michigan winter have never been in the same sentence. The guys I talked to that were advanced snowboarders and tried both options out wanted the stiffer non banana boards, but with mange traction.
