Perfect ski - perfect size?
I'm a fellow skiier from germany and would like you, to recommend a ski to me.
I'm 187 and 75 kg and i want my ski to work in the park but also on the piste and in the powder from time to time.
So what is your advice? Which size should i chose and what's the best ski for me?
Thanks for your help.
ah, I forgot to mention that i'm a quite good skiier, but i never had the chance to hit park and pipe more than 4-5 days yet.
get a ski around the same height as you, 180-190 range. that will be good and poppy for on piste and jumps and pipe.
if your really into jibbing get a ski a bit shorter than you, some where inbetween your chin and your nose. its easier to get around for rails.
as far as ski characteristics, just try to find demo days at nearby mountains.
new cru leader bitch.
there are actually alot of different kind of skis that would be good for you. if they are going to be your only pair, i'd get something with a 90+mm waist. as for size, i'd probably get 179-185, if they are going to be your park skis.
dynastar big troubles, rossignol scratch bs, k2 PE or seths would probably be what you are looking for. just try to demo as many skis you can. it's all about personal preference really.
if Pac-Man affected us as kids, we'd all be running around in darkened rooms, munching magic pills and listening to repetitive electronic music.
definatly something around the hieght of you, i'd recomend an all mountain ski likethe salomon foils, or k2 pes
Line Anthems 178 are the answer to your prayers
pes= public enemys....get em.
P.S.- I am Optimus Prime.
surface watch lifes... 183cm, 90 underfoot... perfect for you... great ski for park and all mtn...
if only your veins were filled with oil, the world would rush to your rescue...
basically, P.Es are bomb proof, but heavy
and foils are light, but alot easier to break
hey thanks for all the postings.
I have the chance to get the dynastar troublemaker + the Look PX 12 Jib binding for about 200 bucks.
Problem is that the ski is only 175 cm long.
What do ya think?
Shall i knock down this offer?
PE's and Anthems aren't really pow skis.
Go with a rossi brigade, scratch BC, line bacons, maybe an ARV, a line blend might actually be really good for you too in 186

i would say, if you are gonna use this as an all-mountain ski do not get them, they are way too short. you need to be in the 180 range, unless you're looking for a pure jibbing ski, which it doesn't sound like.
i ski on volkl karmas, made in Deutschland, and i like them a lot because i can do anything with them.
its stiff, which i like because i can bomb down anythihng, and it doesn't suck too bad in the park.
The combination of "style" and "ease." The word is spelled with a z just to make it more steezy.
Check out that steeze! Damn he's good.
foils are good all around
are they this years model? cant be surely
find out why they are going for 200 bucks before you go any further
Denver got a load of snow...
So we jibbed it.
Any more brain busters?

Sit in your fucking armchair wanking off to pop idols, then trying to avoid your wifes gaze as you try to come to terms with you sexless marriage, then go and spend your wages on kebabs, fruit machines and brasses. Fuck that for a laugh. I know what i'd rather do. Tottenham away. LOVE IT"

armada arv...sounds like your kindof big mountain with a lil park on the side.
your randomness is unacceptable
def check into the volkl bridge. can kill it all mountain and still nimble and poppy enough for park.
