Barrett Christy has been tweaking her pro models for more than ten years now, so you know it's damn-near perfect. This year's model boasts Banana technology and, of course, Magne-Traction. What's more, the board's bamboo core and bean-based topsheet make it a mean, green shredding machine.

Tester feedback:

"The banana was so fun! Super soft, but really stable at the same time."

"Shape is awesome and overall felt really good under my feet."

Available sizes: 146, 149, 152, 155
