Lib Tech invited one of snowboarding's most prolific freestyle rulers Brandon Reis to reimagine the vibe of the iconic Skate Banana. Lib tech gave him a blank canvas and free reign to unleash his @monareisa drawings on his favourite all mountain board. This Brandon Reis special edition Banana rides like any other: rips the park, carves ice, jibs and floats effortlessly in powder but with a little extra kid brain at work to enhance the everyday abnormally fun weirdness of snowboarding. So feel free to be free on Brandon's freestyle Banana after all he's from New Hampshire where they "Live free or die" and always ride it weird!
