I am buying some line blends friday and i was wondering what size i should get.
I am 15 years old 5'4 and a 125 pounds i am an advanced/expert skiier.
My dad wants me to buy the 178 because i could spend more years riding them. (i have not had my growth spurt yet but that should come soon)
I am planning to ski 70% all mountain and 30% park. I think the 171 would be better but i wanted your guys opinions.
It's only about 1 or 2cm short, how tall do you reckon you'll grow? I'm 27 (so not gonna grow), 145lb, 5'6", a very aggressive and experienced skier and I'm happy on the 171 for everything except powder. If you think you'll be riding a bit more pow, go 178. All depends on how tall you think you'll, get which is hard to predict, 171cm is a safe bet I reckon, and you'll still enjoy it at your current size.
Well, if i look at my brother, he is 5'7 and still growing, (i think) but the problem is, he is 17 and i don't want to spend 2 years riding on skis which are too big for me, so I think the better option would be 171, but i'll see what my dad thinks.
Thanks for the help!
