haha ty dude, im 13 and 5'3", i can stillg et away with 149s. yeh i was really thinking about getting them remounted and i think i may take them in later this week. It really feels like im swinging my fronts around, not my skis...Will this terribly effect my regular mountain skiing? I dont wanna struggle on the double blacks and stuff when i still have to ski wit my dad. He doesn't go in the terrain parks cus he races, so some times i have to go on the black and such. I can handle em, but i dont know how much it will change if i get them remounted. If i do, how far up should i get em up, i want em a bit farther back from center mounted.
anyone else got any ideas on where? thanks NPM, i just still wanna be able to ski all mountain so mad dad will stop annoying me about they will ride horrible if i get them farther up. "those thing will ride terribly ifu get them mounted farther up"
? i rather not spend all my time just trying to maneuver my ski and not be able to actually enjoy myself. bottom line while i can still pull it off, im gunna by junior skis cus they cheaper and easy to mess around with. And thats beside the point, im looking for advice for where i should mount my bindings.

hhahaa thats what mine look like and theyre not even twins. yet im learning my first 3's and some rails on them. its tricky sicne therye a carving ski. but yeah if you can mount those back! im not allowed to fuck with mine sicne theyre a lease.
yeah im pretty sure ive decided to move em up, but now my dad is being a bitch and saying it can be done once i get the money to do it......Since i dont live on the hill its alot more expensive here (100 dollars) for mounting..... He is used to paying a fraction of that so i have to pursuade him to get them remounted.
Hmmmm yeah maybe i should call around and see if i can get them mounted for less. Thing is i think the other closest shop is like 1 hr away. I wouldn't mind but my dad would i bet....

My PEs are mounted similar to the pics in this original post and i'm wondering if it really affects your park skiing. i can 3 fine but i cant slide for shit. I figured it was probably just because i'm not that good. but could the mounting be a factor as well?
It defintly could be a factor, you wont feel as stable because your not over the centre of the ski... now i mean its not like if you remount your going to be landing 450's on the next day when before you couldn't slide a 10 fooot rail... but you will probably feel a bit more comfortable and confident with your mount further up.

Thats likly the recommened point and shops will mount them at recommended unless you say otherwise.

you shoulda just got some regular skis, 149 is mad short for a 5'3" kid. 5'3" is 160cm, so a 159 would have been perfect for you, or even a 165ish ski thats light, 149 is much to short, unless you are a beginer skier or a vagina that cant move around an extra couple lbs.
actually, i went back and bitched, and since i told them to center mount them and they didnt write it down on paper, there was nothing else they could do so next year im getting them remounted somewhere else, and im gunna get a line reactor and shove it up the other places ass
