I am a 16 year old who has been skiing since the 3rd grade i have skied slalom since 8th grade so i know what im doing on the hill. I am looking to get into park so i need a good solid ski that is cheap and full of jib, help me out! Thanks!
armada ar7's are great there durable and light but a bit pricey. for a cheap price you can get any ski from the LINE company. I recommend getting either the Afterbangs or the Chronics. The afterbangs is great for anything! It has a woodcore like a skateboard. It will take anything you throw at it and they are not that much money. For the Chronics it is a better ski but it is a bit more money. The chronics are also a all woodcore. hope this helped you
I'm 5'11" so not much taller at all really, and I ride some moment pb&j 172's... Honestly preference, because I have friends who are shorter, and ski longer, but ability level is the same. You said you skied slalom so you may like a longer ski with less rocker and more of a traditional camber. Try before you buy! If you get the chance to demo any twin tips at all, take it up! A world of a difference getting to try opposite ends of the spectrum to see where you are! :)
