Water ramp skis
every year i seem to break at least 5 pairs of skis when ramping so im looking for some advice on how to make them last a bit longer. I know a lot of people fiberglass there skis. If anyone does fiberglass them do you mount your binding over the fiberglass? also does cutting holes in the ski help? some people say it reduces impact and lasts longer, but others say the water gets into the core to quickly making them rot. Any advice would be greatly appreciated, thanks!
I've seen ramping skis that have holes in them so water can pass through easily making there be less shock on the ski.

Use super stiff skis that are bulletproof maybe.
Personally I've only broken one pair ramping. Maybe I just don't go hard enough lol. But as for fiberglass I've seen it done with bindings on and without. I'm assuming your ramping facility has some sort of percolation system to it so so with fiberglass added you should be all good. also maybe buy an old junker pair of skis just for the ramps. they don't even have to be twin tips if you don't want.
