I have them. They're pretty stiff. More of an all mountain ski that will rip in the park, and kind of get you through the pow if you know how to use them.
RE: the insult "That's gayer than AIDS"
Your insult would have made sense if it was said in the 80s or 90s, but now the incidence of AIDS is more prevalent in heterosexual individuals*... the correct way to try pwning someone with that statement now a days is to say "I'm sorry to those I offend, but that was officially more heterosexual than AIDS".
