Hugh_Conway_jr(Its mostly skill that makes the pros look so good.)
Maybe Try drilling a few holes in your tips and tail to reduce swing weight, and get a bit more splicey with your imovie skills.
You got this.
SofaKingSickyour "real" skis will be better balanced and weighted but they will not be the difference between spinning feeling like a struggle vs not
can you be more specific about what youre saying? what kind of jump are you trying a 360 on? a video would be ideal, that way we can see what youre doing and offer specific advice
most tricks, 360s included, are not an effort against physics, they can be completely natural and well, look at most good park skiers, we're scrawny little white boys for the most part. it's less about muscling through tricks and more about understanding the forces at work and taking advantage of them, for instance on a 3 you can carve into it and the spin is completely effortless
yzzidIll try to get a video. thanks alot!
250ryou could spend way too much money like me and ski park on carbon fiber core skis...
or you could just learn how to ski
ok one serious piece of advice, spinning comes from your waist, not your arms. come in with a wide-ish stance, get a decent pop and think about spinning your hips and legs. your upper body will follow.
sneekthere aren't any carbon fiber core skis on the market really...
250rpraxis MVPs and praxis piste jibs are mid fat twin tips made with carbon fiber maple ash and paulwonia. the carbon fiber is an extra $150 or $250 option depending on how much you want. makes my 184cm long 110mm underfoot MVPs quite easy to spin, but thats not why i bought them.
also they don't make any park friendly shapes, but DPS makes 100% carbon cored skis...
Hugh_Conway_jrIts still not a carbon core. carbon sheets or stringers are used in the lay up. but the core material is not carbon.
... Got a link to the 100% carbon core DPS ski? I just searched their site and came up with nothing. I would imagine that a 100% carbon core ski would be fucking awful to ski... but now I am interested.
