I'm a very oldschooler guy with a big family getting newschool, so I'm in for some advise about gear I don't know too well:
One of my kids is 11-12, 155cm and some 50 kg. I got in stock for him right now a 168 "S1 jib" rossi ski (the one with the skull bikini girl, you may have seen). Being a twin tip, I'm trying to believe that it's still okay, even if a bit too long, since the little guy is quite fearless anyway.
He is high about the graphics, and I'm inclined to saving the bucks from a new pair, but not at the cost of him getting a hard time on his gear now (season about to start downsouth).
So any thoughts welcome, the boy handles everything at the resort, some outside too, and want's to push the limits and get into the park as much as he can, starting now. Is this one ski way too long?
thank you guys, and have a nice summer!
