ColingarnesI'd also like to point out that I'm 31 and pretty novice when it comes to park.. basic slides.. 270 outs... 360s off jumps..
Basically I'm not going to be getting too crazy so I dont know how much of a stiff park hacker I need.... although I would like to progress.
Just dont wanna beat my $900 custom kartels trying to learn shit.
Fair enough man, I feel where you're coming from! There's a lot to be said for going to a wider, softer park ski like the Blends, Wets, or Edollos, but the disadvantages that come with that, especially when first starting out in the park, are going to be a less stable platform for landings, especially in the tail, and greater swingweight. That being said, at the end of the day you should ski on whatever you enjoy skiing on!
