So some info about me... I'm about 5'11, 140 lbs, type 3 skier but only beginner/intermediate park skier and I ski the mid Atlantic. I was looking at the on3p filthy riches but idk whether or not to get 181 or 176... I know they have a lot of rocker but as a noob I thought it would be beneficial to have the shorter length for spins and stuff. Thanks in advance!
Don't see how your ski would be smacking the rail, you slip out, the ski never leaves the rail. It simply turns over. And I think somone who's 5'11" should get the 181. Short skis are easier to ride in the park, but don't promote good park skills. He shouldn't have any problem learning on 181s.
