+180 cm park skis
hi, my name is andy and im very tall.
i need park skis that are more than 180 cm but no more than 90 mm underfoot.
if anybody here knows of a ski like this please post here
look at the 181 suspects or dumonts. From what i've heard about the suspects they're stiff, so they'd be good for someone like yourself
also, basically every K2 ski comes in a 189, so check out their stuff in the 08/00 gear preview
It's a walk-off!
i'm 6'3'' in the same boat.
they make urban punx in 184 but they're soft as tits. volkl walls are good park skis for tall people because they're stiff, but they don't actually measure out to 185 cm. and k2s new kung fujas comes in 189, but they're in the 90s at the waist. so yea, theres not much you can do.
i wish one of the small ski companies (hint- moment or boone) would make a park ski in like 186-188 or something around there...you'd be suprised how many tall people there are on the slopes.

A 189 park ski would make my day, symetrical, about the same flex as chronics.
yeah peps new ski comes long but its wide, i wish k2 would make somthing like a 189 fujative casue i like their skis the best.
last years blends in 186 are money
chronics in a 181, addicts in a 181, walls in 185, arv in 185 (altho thats in the low 90s), punisher in 182, punx in 184
thats all i can think of off the top of my head
public enemy / extreme 179 actually measures 182 i think. also: 181 ar6, 181 t-hall, 181 pipe cleaner

This question comes up so often why the hell are companies not making skis for the taller guys?!?!
Anyway, im 6'3'' and have spent ages lookin through next years skis for the longest so heres the list of anything I found above a 181
Volkl wall 185 (not a true 185 though... volkl end up measuring a bit smaller)
4frnt MSP 187
4frnt STL 183
Zag mutant 185
Scott punisher 191
Scott P3 184
Amplid C7 185
Elan Partisan 185
Blizzard the reason 185
CoreUPT candide yard 182
Atomic urban punx 184
Atomic punx 182
K2 kung fujas 189
"Anyone else have phenoms?? Its like having half a goldfish bowl stuck to your head. YOU CAN SEE EVERYTHING!!"
surface watchlifes come in 183s
i think you should deal with the width and get the kung fujas in a 189cm but if you are picky about the specs then 4frnt MSP as its good as its gonna get for you in a 187cm
