Good Beginner Park Setup?
Any advice for a sick newbie park setup? Honestly all I really know about are after bangs which are good for rails...not so sure for jumps though
Check out K2's line of park skis, good intro skis (some of them) check out the Domain.
Stomping since '95
Afterbang is not a trick, it's a way of life
ON3P fo' life
Find some cheap Armada el reys.
find an old pair of invaders

k2 sight, or volkl ledge, both have sidewall so they'll actually carve. Ledge is symmetrical and flexy, k2 sight is directional and stiff. Take your pick
it ain't Saturday, but it don't matter to me... GOT NO JOB!
if you think the k2 sight is a heavy ski you need to hit the gym, because ive ridden them and they were pretty light.
If your set on line go with the Masterminds, super light, buttery. My brother has them with marker squires, although I'd reccomend you get rossi bindings, never had any major problems, and only 2 minor problems which were flukes.
I tail tapped a gaper who was standing on the knuckle yesterday. It was a nice firm smack right to the helmet, definitely the high point of my day.
3 dudes living together with a ferret...really hope I don't end up like that when I'm 30.
****List of Things i want****
2009 line invader is my favorite ski ever. probably wont be able to find them anywhere though. I still have mine that ive been riding for 4 season and they're still in great operating condition. probably never gonna let those bad boys go. so playful and you can take those badboys all over the mountain (except in pow obviously)
i always steer people who want to begin park skiing towards the line masterminds, also the armada el reys are light and relatively inexpensive
really depends on the type of skier you are as well as your height, and weight. Check out the k2 press, theyre cheap and a decent park ski with camber under foot and alittle bit of what k2 calls jib rocker. throw some salomon z12 bindings on them and youll be good to go!
i ski, you ski, we all ski for icecream
