just bought the new 06 fujative's and got the 159... but i have the option of switching out sizes if i want. im 5'4" 110-115lbs. the 159's come upto the middle of my forehead and the 169's are a tad longer than flush with the tip of my head... what should i do?? is there any rule to sizing with twin tips...like the rule snowboarding has of the board coming upto your nose...hmmmm??
how old are you? if your 14 or something i'd switch to a bigger ski in case you grow
yea cause where there hittin u now is fine ut if u growin then it aint gonna work. between the ages of 14 and 15 i went from 5'10" to 6'3" and my skis were way to short for me when the season started.
go larger than smaller, cause before you know it u'll be growin like crazy
i'm just a little bit shorter and a little bit heavier than you and i'd advise you move up to the 169. i used elizabeths for my park ski this year and they're a 172. short skis are fun, but the more i progress the more i appreciate the extra stability longer skis give you on landing big jumps.
my level of radness... it just can't... be quantified.
yeah... when i bought the skis n shit i had the 169 in my hands but i ran back and swapped out for 159 because they didnt seem right... but yeah now i realize that 169 are about my size..thanks to all who helped out
ummm well im like 5"6'-5"7' and im goin to be gettin 169 fujis around january...but ummm check to see how tall ur parents are my dad isnt much taller then me so a 169 will last me like 2 years then ill probably move to around a 176 ski my whole like probably
its not called Ipod its called ISki.
nick go with the 06 PEs get the 174's those should work a lil beter for you
ya get the bigger size especially if you are growing. it really doesnt affect you that much but it will be more stable.
dude my 165 TMs were like 7" above my head when I bought them, and over the summer I grew right into them, prefectly.
because I like poop.
yea i bought some chronic mini's last season and i rode em like 1 night and i ended up crackin em in half on the nose... lol the funny thing is i bought em for cheap and i didnt feel like listenin to the size limit ...so once i destroyed em i called line and they sent me some 169 free of charge. oh yea im 6' 4" a little over the size limit of the mini. haha
People die from all sorts of addictions, but i'm pretty sure nobody has ever died from a porn addiction.
Ya im 5'5" and 14 so i got 165 skis that come almost to the top of my head so you should get some longer skis
Ya its what you want to do. if you want to do park maybe you want something shorter it all depends on your preference and size
If your parents are tall like mine (my dad's 6'8") then go for a bigger one
I am 5' 5" and I ski on 179 Fujis....and you should be skiing on something bigger than 159, definatly. get the 169.
because I like poop.
