ChubbyBoyI'd be lying if I didn't say it wasn't a factor but it's not a huge factor for me to be honest. It all depends on how ugly the graphic is vs how good the ski is
KingTacojust bought two pink atomic triplets because they were 50 bucks in mint condish. fuck a graphic
MinggWhen I was younger, yeah. Now, it does matter but I wouldn't choose a great ski over another less good ski because it had a better graphic. It's definitely a factor but there's more relevant things to consider.
FunkySaneExactly! I did the same as a kid, but I think that was just because I didn't know a lot about skis. Like no knowledge and/or experience about materials, flex, shape. All that stuff. But nowadays I wouldn't just rush to a ski because it looks cool. I think kids should be instructed and taught about skis, so they don't end up in a situation where they have skis they don't like at all because they don't fit the style of skiing they have.
ghosthopIf you don't look good, don't go out on the hill.
