Different skis for urban?
Last season i did a little urban on my normal skis, but nothing much. This season i'm doin tons of urban, and was wonderin if i should bother with a second pair of skis for it. I have one pair of twins that i normally use, and tons of garage shit ones, but they're all my families old racing skis. What's ur advice?
Don't buy new skis just to trash them man. Either buy a new pair to use on the hill, and use the old ones for urban or just don't urban at all. Your skis will get wrecked.

find a really cheep pair of old ones at a swap and use those.
Ski SKi SKI
i use 158 rossis with marker bindings...which probebly cost around 5 dollars if i were to sell them
for now jsut dfo it on ur normal skis...even though it will fuck ur edges up....but then when u get a new pair use them
pick some up off ns, pm MALONE
i didn't know i could buy on ns. where?
do you think an old pair of semi-racing skis would work for urban, or do i need a pair of twins?
twins were made so you could land switch. the question is, can you land switch
you clearly don't do much urban if you're worried about the edge damage.
If you're going to be doing a lot of urban you'll totally fuck your skis so try and pick up a cheap pair for that.
why would you use your skis you use on snow on cement? That makes no sense to me.
I broke my AR5s earlier this year, and have just been using old straight skis for urban since then. Obviously you can't land switch with non twin-tipped skis, but other than that they work fine.
Would I be able to use a pair of old semi-racers?
use your hill skis and just make a good setup and don't fall. that's the best way. i have my one pair of all arounds.. if you do fuck up the bases, it's easily fixable.
just find someone whos selling a pair for really cheap

sure, any ski will work, its just a matter of do you want to ruin them?
when you get a new pair. just make your old ones your urban skis. or just go find a pair of shitty ones for really cheap. end of story
