I was looking to get a pair of vishnu wets but then I realized my size doesn’t exist. I am 5‘4, 15 years old and would need a ski at around 165cm in length. Does anybody know an alternative?

cxsimirAre you sure because a ski that is 15cm longer than myself seems kinda huge tbh...Maybe I should get the magnus 90 161cm?
SofaKingSicki like my skis on the longer side but
1) NS overdoes it and always suggests longer lengths
2) for the type of skiing Vishnus are made for, way over your head is stupid
yes you could do it of course, but it's not optimal. and you can find skis that have most of the same attributes that make Vishnu popular
i say you should get something else symmetrical and soft with rocker. i don't usually recommend Lines but maybe something from them for the time being and since you're 15 you'll be growing and then you can buy Vishnus or whatever strikes your fancy
ColoradoDogfartI’m in the same boat as you man. I’ve skied on the wets for a quick bit and I’m the same height as you. I’m looking at getting a pair of honey badgers and waiting till I’m a little taller to get wets. Contrary to popular belief being 115pounds it’s still hard to butter the wets as I can’t get my center of mass of the tips.

cxsimirThanks alot! I think I agree that 177cm seems a bit too long and I should probably wait until I am tall enough. I think I am going to go for the Line Blends in 171cm.
I will wait aswell. But I’m gonna look into the Line Blends.
