Help with new skis
Im around 5'10 and 65kgs and am looking at a couple of skis for park. I am relatively new to it and can land basic tricks like 360s and 2's off rails. I'm looking at the Line Chronic, J whipit and Volkl ledge. Ill be doing 90% park with the occasional groomer but sadly no pow (damn Australia). I want something fairly firm as I want to start hitting bigger jumps, around 30ft. Im looking at around $550-600 aud with bindings as well so I know the J's will be hard with the exchange rate. I would also appreciate any other suggestions.
Rule out the Js. They are going to be way too soft.
SIP J.P, Sarah, Warnick, C.R., Shane, and all those lost.
id say chronics would be your best bet. The jskis will be too soft and volkl has subpar durability. Ive had chronics and whip its and id say that that chronics will be best because they're light but have fairly good durability, and are stiff enough for jumps
