ZeMagnificentKev07 Invaders?! Shit you best make sure those are in good condition son. Wtf do Brit's only own old ass Line skies? One of the first LINE skies i remember seeing my stepbro rock were 200 and fucking 9 LINE invaders's, sick ass top graphics as well. But god damn 07's?! you know, maybe their in fine condition for such an old ski, But I highly fucking doubt it. These are not firearm's forged from solid steel and encased in Cosmoline to allow them to last many many years. They are skies, and if they were used for more than a couple season's then thrown in someone's attic you probably don't want to buy them. Fucking 07, tell that cheap fuck to give them to you for 5 god damn pounds max. I have absolutely no idea what kind of bindings even you can expect on those, maybe a very OG member can help that out?
Max3ski720thanks im trying to find a very cheap ski but i had no idea how bad they would be.
ZeMagnificentKevI feel for you man, I can't imagine the market over there is very saturated with twin tips. But I did a little looking for yeh and something along the lines of these is what you should be going for. Apologies if the that ain't cheap cause of shipping or the private sellers are all the way on the other fucking side GB, but you're probably gonna have to put some work in to get em cheap and decent, and your size.
AS well, this site seems to be good starting off point, lists them all off with different links to different sites:
and When you wanna buy new one's but still at a cheapish price this seems like a good bet:
Anyway, when you start to love the sport get your ass over to North America, Canadian resorts love hiring our fellow commonwealths during their leap year or whatever the fuck it is, fuck that snowdome shit!
SkierBetchThose seem a bit short for someone who stands at 180cm. Just for a comparison, I am 165cm tall, I ride 166cm skis for park currently and the smallest ski I have is 162cm and even that feels a bit short for me.
I'm going to agree with eHeath, around 170cm at least, would be a good length to aim for. A lot of people on here sell relatively cheap skis in the Gear section. There's also online outlet shops, it would be a bit to ship but it usually is when anything comes internationally unless you can find something around you that's cheaper.
No.QuarterI have no idea what shipping would be like the UK as most sellers are in the US, but you should check out geartrade.com. They got mad deals on used skis that aren't 10 years old like those invaders
