but holy fuck, my shop has them. i was talking to the guy and he told me that k2 purposely broke the core in the top. its tip is so fucking soft!!! looks like a fun ski to do presses (hence the name) and butters. the tail is kinda weird though becuase its not the same height as the tip
On Saturday, July 24th, 2010, the most epic thing that happened, didn't happen.

it's a rockered fujative, aka the perfect ski for doing butters, presses, nollies, etc. if you liked the fujative, you'll probably like this ski. and no, it's not weird at all skiing switch. did you kids not ski before true twins existed?
Haha, this is exactly what I was thinking. Rockered Fujative sounds amazing though, I loved those skis. I may have to see if I can get a cheap pair of these. Also Kang- maybe the shop guy was trying to shift a broken pair by touting it as a 'feature'?
They are a flexy ski. The Fujative was the first ever park ski designed with blended woods that acted as specific 'hinge' points for buttering per Pep's desire. We brought back that mold and re-did the Baseline to be JIB ROCKER and the PRESS is now a sick ass ski that you don't have to break the bank on. Peep that vid link I posted if you think they won't work well going switch.
a kid that can double flip is most likely quite a bit more skilled then your average NSer, videos of people riding skis and trying to show how good they are is fucking pointless, everyone skis different, while 1 ski could work well for 1 person, it could be a piece of shit for an other.
Remember when skiing was about the skiing and not the money? Thanks for ruining that people.
Easy there. Point being it isn't a total noodle. He was concerned they are super soft. Video shows that you can ski them and not wash out like it is a snowblade.
Concern was also mentioned about a lower tail height. Video shows that the dude isn't going to have to land switch and die. Some people actually enjoy seeing the product in action. It gives slight perspective of it's capabilities.
I think you have it backwards. Watching your average skier ride a product means jack shit because they aren't testing the ski's boundries. Having a killer skier demo them shows how they perform when they're actually being worked!
