I had a chance to try out my new ski boards this weekend:
Alternate captions (feel free to add your own in the comments):
- These skis aren’t short, I just have really long feet.
- A three-year-old punk was mouthing off to me at High Camp, so I stole his skis. Who’s crying now, you big baby?!?
- But the box said they were pre-shrunk!
The verdict? They’re really fun. I wouldn’t take them down an icy black diamond run, and I’m not exactly a speed demon on them, but they make for a fun change of pace. I also think they help me work on my heel/toe balance, which according to a recent instructor I had, I apparently have issues with.
