ok im about 5'6 or 5'7 and i need new skis. im deffinitly getting K2's cuz my dads friend can get me the public enemies for bout $200 or less. my problem is should i get the 159's or the 169's??? im right in between them both. personally i think i should get the 159's, but my friend is pushing me to get the 169's. any opinions?????
yea, i personally like longer skis. however, it depends on what you are using them for too. if you are only an ok skier and using them for mostly park, the 159 will be easier to throw around, but the 16 will be sooo much better all over and not much tougher to huck once you get used to them. my vote is for the 169s
Hey get the 169's, they will be so much better for skiing all over the mountain. Believe me. Also I feel that a longer ski makes landings easier to stomp. Don't go 159 you will regret it later. Plus you will look like a bitch.
well, it wood be a huge benfite to you to get the smaller skis and learn to ski and get the basic tricks down on them. but, once you start doing bigger tricks and going bigger, your gunna want a bigger ski. so, if you will be able to buy a new pair in a couple years or so get the smaller ones, but, if yu are gunna have to ride these for a long time get the bigger ones. but at first they will be a pain.
^SEWARD i teach sking man, i get kids all the time who there parents buy them like 170's so that they will last, and they fucking are all over the place. trust man, go smaller now, itll make yur learning your beginner tricks alot easier and alot more fun.
