What park skis are the best
Ive been skiing since I was three, but I never really went into the park to do rails, boxes ect. But now I want to start getting into all of the aspects of park but I have no idea what would be the best kind of skis for all around park skiing. The only problem is I have a fairly tight budget (around 500 dollars for skis and bindings). I was just looking for some advice one what would be good to start with but are still good skis.
2012 after bangs on eBay for 350 with bindings
What size range do you think you would be in?
Don't worry about the latest & greatest with your first pair of twins. As the dude stated above about the Afterbangs on EBay would be a perfect start. Just peruse EBay or the outlets of major online Vendors like Evo.com for some good deals.
I'm sure you're a great skier but just getting into park you're likely not gonna abuse your skis to the point of wasting your time getting price point.
Just get something around head-height, give em a progressive mount (near center) and give er hell!
Don't go crazy with your first pair of park skis - you will break them, you will grow to learn which style of park ski best suits you (some like wider, rockered park skis, some like more narrow cambered park skis - but you won't know your preference until you really get into skiing park.) My best suggestion for you is to go to your closest shop, look at the price-point park skis, and pick the one that calls to you most that fits into your budget (bonus points for previous years models). This way, you won't be overly attached to your $600 park ski that you will break because (and, no offense by this) you don't know what you're doing. Then, when you learn what style of park skiing you like best and you'll be immersed in the scene so you can pick the ski that best fits you - not what other people say are the best park ski out there.
