New Ski's ?
Im pretty interested in getting a new ski, im currently riding a 161 dumont and a rossi sprayers 168. Im about 5'9 150 and still growing think im too small for the dumont. I liek the sprayers but there jsut for urban. im thiniking about selling my dumonts and going to put those bindings on the sprayers. the whole point is what kind of ski should i get if i get a new pair. im basically all in the park scene so a park realated ski would do the choice so thats were NS comes in. What kind of sticks should i get? and bindings. and what size?
Ment to put in BST forum. sorry. someone delete!
161 is wayyy too short for ur height. and 168 is still pretty short for ur height. im 5'9 and have been riding a 176 park ski for 2 years, and for pow i ride a 186.

Fritz then Eric_D now.
damn well i was like 5'3 during ski season so yeah hahaha
im your size, the shortest i would go for park is 175, i ride 179, would go up to 181. For freeriding i go 182-191. Seriously, this seems like its long, but youll appreciate the longer length. it doesnt slow down your spins, it just makes you more stable so you can spin better. trust me. which ski is a broad topic. Depends on where you live, what exactly you want to use it for. I would say in general the skinniest youd want is something like a 178 invader or something. for park i prefer a wider ski, but i ski a lot of chop and slush and the such, but i wont ski anything skinnier than 95 because ill sacrifice a little edge reaction for the stability in the conditions i ski. In short, this topic goes really far and ive been rambling due to my current intoxication but yea, good luck with this quest.
steve you should check out boone skis. i love riding em. mad poppy, super durable, all bamboo core so it will grip your screws well and you won't rip out your bindings. i can hook you up with a deal on em just hit me up.
Have you seriously grown 6 inches since the end of the ski season
something 174 - 181. and a laser cat,
