So my daughter 125#, 5'3" got her new skis, 181cm, 130mm underfoot, and 160mm tips, rockered deep dish....fucking pontoon smear sticks. Me 180# and 5'6" with only 164 and 159....this is just wrong. Skiers need to back to skinny ass sticks.

God damn those things are long. They look like helicopter blades...I bet if she does any spins, those things will generate enough lift for her to just take off into the sunset lol. :eusa_clap:

She's 19, boarded 7-15/16 and switched to skiing 15/16; advanced skills...nooo...skis like a boarder but apparently has the talent to be fearless, loves speed and the ability to keep lose and bounce. Been told that she definitely keeps up with kids who been skiing and racing since they were babies, but probably could not run gates to save herself...and thus a pontoon smear skis that she ordered. When she started skiing, "Dad, its so much more fun, its a more natural stance and stable platform ... and I can go faster." I can only imagine that she'll need new knees by 35. A pic from when she was 16 ripping around...from this...
