I usually ski a volkl bridge. I am not real sure about bindings either, didnt know if the jesters were over rated or if there was something better or just as good but cheaper for a kid with no money.
surface skis..... good price good quality
Lines pretty good too.
No one has talked about Armadas Salamons or volkl are there issues?
if this is gonna be your only ski i suggest you get something 50/50 allmt/park. look into some line chronics, volkl walls (symmetrical), dynastar trouble makers, k2 kung fujas or last year's extremes... all solid park / all mountain skis.
