Has anyone noticed that the skis people use today are so much smaller than the skis that were used when freestyle was just becoming a thing. I watched Happy Dayz not too long ago, I also watched a Shane McConkey documentary. In both of these films I never failed to notice how tall their skis were compared to them. Some skis had to be almost a foot taller than their riders.
Why do you think in this era of skiing have skis actually become shorter and not bigger, or even stay the same? Seems weird that they were throwing down some crazy shit while riding 7ft long 2*4s, when some skiers today use skis up to their nose just to slide a flat rail.
Personally, I think freestyle should have never trended towards short skis.
