    @Horton You May want to plug the hole in the ceiling of your boat dock. Looks like you have some visitors that may make a mess
    Shut up and ski

    Why did this remind me of a ski @dirt got in the past?

    It must be a weird perspective as I am not that tall :-)

    68 vs 67 was an interesting experience. The 68 doesnt feel crazy fast compared to the 67 but a lot more stable in the turns. I have to ride the ski on the front foot in the turns and stay nice and tall.
    On the 67, I could push on the ski and snap turns which does not happen as easily with the 68. I am running stock settings and I am probably going to give long and shallow a go on my next ride which I ususally prefer on the longer ski.

    @rico what is your height ans weight? Im 6’3 200 lbs. and ride a 68 2017 Pro Build Vapor. I love the ski, but im considering the 2018. Have you ever ridden the 2017 and if so where you on a 67? Im torn between a 68 or 67. I ski 36 but will be dropping down to 34 next year. I can get into 38 off so not a great skier.

    I am 6'2 210 lbs and was riding a 17 Pro Build 68 last year. The 67 18 is fun but I don't think it will give me as many buoys as the 68. My weight is too much for the 67 in the turns when I put front or back foot pressure.

    We need video!. It would be interesting to see you ride the 67 and the 68 back to back.

    @rico how do you like the 18 compared to the 17? Pros/cons?
