Which skis for specifically park?
Hey guys, thanks so much for the help. I REALLY appreciate it. I am looking for new skis and have options from a local shop and some online options. I only ride park in the Midwest and am 5"8 and 100 lbs. I would like a ski that excels at all park features, and might try my first 40 foot jump next year, but am also super interested at learning rails. My options include the Vokl Revolt 95, Lib Tech backwards, Vishnu Wet, Armada BDOG, K2 sight, and 4FRNT switchblade. The shop is the house boardshop so if anyone has any other suggestions that come from there that would also be appreciated. Under $500 for an entire setup I hope and am willing to spend 425 at max on a ski. Thanks!
I bet you could randomly pick any park specific ski from any of the 10 top ski makers and you'll be perfectly happy. Considering you're fairly new to park and you probably don't have any specific dimensions or flex patterns in mind just go with something that's on sale in the low 170's
i know many people that really love the 4frnt switchblades
Get something narrow underfoot preferably true twin to learn to 40 footers fakie
Added length will help balance but could pose a problem promoting bad habits (backseat)
Maybe get a light weight ski binding combo too idk
1. Choose the brand you trust
2. Choose their park ski
Revolt 95! they are a great ski to ski some park while also being able to ski all over your local hill
other good options:
1)LIne honey badgers( cause they hella light)
3)B dogs ( but they kinda heavy)
4)head frame walls( ive heard good things)
Hype aside, the wet is a very good ski. Buttery but with a (in my opinion) controllable flex, a nice centered side cut, and a perfect width for midwest conditions. Will slay rails, zoom down hills, and bounce butter wheelie nollie all over wherever you want, as long as you learn how to ride them
do you know if you want a softer or stiffer ski? or right in the middle?
I probably don't want a super stiff ski because I am light. Bump
Get poachers or arv 96s cause you r going to want a good all mountain ski if it's a one ski quiver
