giantjoe Posted May 3, 2014 Share Posted May 3, 2014 Hey, I wasn't sure if I should post here or in technique, but here it goes. I'm an open water skier, but I want to learn the course. I've been skiing for about 4 years, but have progressed fairly well according to my in-laws who have been skiing forever. Unfortunately I have no video to show you where I'm at, and it's snowing here today so the water is still a month away. I've read a lot of threads about how to get the course done, less speed, bigger ski... But this is where my problem is. I'm 6'6" and 235. I'm currently riding a HO CFR Charger 69" with size 15 Attack boots and ride at 34MPH+ at 15off in the open water. It really feels like the ski drags any slower and since I'm going to try the course slow, I don't think this ski will work for me. I have a Radar combo set that are crazy wide and 69" so I might be able to use one of those, but then I think they wouldn't be enough to carve the course. I'm here for ski recommendations. I'm thinking Radar Theory, or P6? Are there any other skis I'm missing? I'll buy a used ski since after 6 weeks at the lake this summer I'll hopefully progress past everything I currently own, and don't want to spend a fortune on something that's going to be done after a season. Thanks in advance for any help. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
