This is true, I do ski for Epic Planks. So take what I say with a grain of salt. I would.
Keep in mind though, if I thought the skis were garbage I'd have kept my mouth shut. Lying to potential customers is not the way to represent a brand that supports you.
In all honesty, I've found the durability to be on par with the best skis on the market. I love how they ski and I would recommend them to anyone.
