Slalom season started up well but then I become very inconsistent.
Almost gave up totally.
Folks at the club convinced me to test something different.

Last week I got me a HO Turbo Trix.
It is darn slippery.
First run I got up but fell each time standing up.
Had to use a drop ski to run a few passes.
Third run I got up on one ski and could run two passes.
I think start on one ski is a trick and should give some points ;0)

The seller told me it is a 43 but I do not see any signs on the ski.
When measure it is closer to 42".

My first Animals. Fit ok but very tight over toes.
Can that be adjusted?

    Hi trick gurus

    Did I got the right ski?
    Was this a suitable ski to start with?

    Approx how old is it?

    How can one check if the bindings are in the right place?

    Suitable to start with

    20 years at a guess

    Front Measure half way then put your foot in the binding and your ankle bone should be 1 cm forward of half way rear binding as close to the front one at an angle that you are comfortable with

    Have fun
