Kids Combo's

bojansbojans Posts: 259 Solid Baller
My 6 yo son is bound and determined to ski on 1 this year but his trainer combos do not have a rtp. Found a deal too good to pass up for a nice small set of kids combo's that I thought I would share for anyone else who is looking. I figure the slalom ski will get him through a couple seasons until he grows into a larger kids ski.

    Two trick skis? Or a wakeboard? Or use one combo and a real slalom ski. Make sure it's a game for him.

    Good deal, but aren't 59" skis going to be awful big for a 6 year old?

    FWIW, these are the exact skis that my FIL starts all the little people on. Small piece of history since the old Lake Region factory used to be 4 blocks from my house (now a Moomba/Supra dealer)

    @oldjeep Those are the skis my daughter learned on when she was 5. I have two sets, one tied together with ropes and another set are separated. I think we got her up the single of those when she was 6. As soon she learned to stand I would drag her around on the kitchen floor standing on one of those cat scratching boards you hang on a doorknob. I don't remember anymore why it took three more years to get her behind the boat (probably an objection from... someone :-) .

    She's 22 now and just moved down to Baton Rouge after graduation. She never got too serious about skiing, only skiing a couple times a year through the years. She brought some friends out to the lake to ski a few days before she headed south - I'm hoping she makes some skiing connections while she's down there. Certainly a trip to Bennett's will be in order when we go down to visit!
    Is it time to ski, yet?
