Last night I picked up the Lib Tech Attack Banana from the local Tech Rep to borrow for a couple days and get it out on snow. I’ve been wanting to try it out since the announcement and finally made the move to track one down. Since it hadn’t been ridden yet, I’m making an effort to avoid all rocks on the mountain which means more ollies.
I’ll be putting up a review of the Attack Banana after I get a couple more days on it but I can already say that it’s my favorite Mervin board to date, hands down. Most of today was spent riding the groomers with it and some powder that we found, some choppy areas and a couple laps through Forest Trail park. It was a good warm up day for the board and getting to know it.
I’ve been in Mammoth for a little over 2 months now and been riding the mountain since opening up, it’s been a treat. Quite honestly having moved here without ever visiting, I found a place that I am liking more and more each day. It’s also great that I have this mountain outside my office every day and within 2 minutes can be on the lift for lunch break. Anyway I just feel really lucky to be here.

The end of the day was spent with Jeremy and Daniel lapping through Main Park. Starting this week, I’m going to get back to seriously progressing my park riding. Starting small once again and working my way up to more features in the parks. Until then, I’ll be riding the Attack Banana, the Arbor Formula and then the Salomon Answer. Just giving a heads up on reviews coming up!
