Girls twintip length?
hey guys, finally got my girlfriend to switch from snowboarding to skiing. She's 5'3 110lb, and a beginner skier. I dont think she will be doing any parkskiing, so mostly groomers. I got her the K2 missdonduct in the 149 size. I was hesitating with the 159 which would be about her height, and the 149 which is right up her nose, and probably easier to learn with... any advices will be really apreciate!! +k
In my opinion I think you picked the right size as it's her first pair of skis and she's small.
Hope she likes them!
149 is a good length for her to start out with. Let her learn how to carve and get comfortable on skis before she bumps to something longer. The shorter ski will be more agile and easier to control. Once she gets the hang of it some longer skis may be in order. But I think she may struggle to control those 159's as a beginner.
