New skis :)
I used to just ahve some atomic skis they werent anything special. I have been skiing for 4 year now and got to the point where i want to freestyle now.
I bought myself
Salomon 1080s Skis
Salomon s912 ti bindings
Salomon 1080 boots
will this b e awhole new type of skiing im scared the twin tips will be harder to ski.
I can take double blakc diamonds and consider myself advanced.
How will this setup go.
any tips on tricks or anything
great setup for sure, twins are fun and are easy to throw around, you will have tons of fun this season
Seize the carp
thats deffinatly a good pair of skis, as for tips on 'tricks or anything else', just look around the site because that is what it is mostly about.
That is definitely a great set-up...As for the skis, you should find them pretty easy to work with...they are good for most applications...I raced on my old ones a couple of times!!
ALWAYS GIVING....NEVER TAKING
super duper mega ultra turbo set up!

I have the exact same setup, pretty cool, accept i seem to break the skis pretty fast.

great choice on the boots, i have the same ones and no shin bang and they are so comfy

thats awesome, if your just getting into freestyle, just work your way up, get comfortable skiing backwards and thrown some 1's and 3's, try some grabs to mix in with them and take it from there
Thanks a lot guys for all the support. All good replies.
Its glad to be at such a nice forum with some cool skiers and people who arent trashing other skiers.
I cant wait to get my gear on wednesday.
Here in Alaska we got like 1 ft of snow already and it has been snowing all day, pretty ill.
Oh yea another question i dont want to post a topic, but i want a good beanie to wear and was wondering if you guys know some sick beanies that have ski companies on there or something, i cant stand wearing boarder clothes.
Dude thats a fucking sweet set-up. As youve already been told youll have no problem skiing anything with those. But if yu a very aggressive skier then you need to be careful with the 1080's. The are really soft. when i switched from racing to frestyle i was like flexing the 1080 at like a 90 degree angle. But after you get use3d to them they work like a dream :)
what size did you go with?
as druid said, you may want to watch out for the flex. i went from racing for several years on race stock skis to the concepts last year and there was a huge difference
Representing the KPP
I am 5 feet 11 and im am riding 173s
I didn't know that the 1080's came in 173..thought it was 171's but that should be nice though
The only thing you will find you need to get used to is the fact that your bindings will be closer to the centre of the ski, so you will have more tail behind you. Other than that, there isn't much different. Welcome aboard!!
