159s are tiny for him but i mean 169s arent that bad. they are still small for him but maybe he likes smaller skis since he is more comfortable with it. 159s really are snowblades though
Your buddy is a weiner.
Hellbents for a park ski is retarded. That's more of a fassion show than it is skiing.
I am 5'8 and around 170 and i have tiny ass 151s that are WAY to short for me. the only reason i got them was be cause at the time i was switching from snowblading back to skiing and had no clue how big skis were actually soposed to be.
