    I have an old KD trick ski. What size are you looking for?

    You might what to start on 2 if you've never tricked.

    If you are a solid slalom skier you can learn on one. All the kids I have taught went right to one ski. I do have a neighbor who can run the course and we have struggled to get him up on 1. He gets up funny (rope on wrong side of the ski) so I think that is making getting up on the trick a challenge.

    Not a recommendation, but I am not a very good skier. My cousin is, and he has a Graviton. (2015?) I tried it for the first time. Struggled getting up, but it was pretty easy to improve. I would recommend it.

    The Graviton is supposed to be a very good ski. If he is looking new the usual suspects D3, Quantum and the Radar would all work well. Used tricks are always hard to find.

    Agree. Used trick ski are rare.
    But I seldom see people use them.
    Does not make sence??

    The usual suspects are excellent if you can find them. Look for the newest Radar trick - the old Gravitrons catch edges so aren't best for beginning. And ride the ski!

    @gsm_peter i figure ive had a d3 trick for 10 yearsm i havent thought about selling it nor upgrading it. In the circle of people who use theirs daily im not sure how many actually feel a need to upgrade other than for breakage.

    @gsm_peter they don’t sell that many of them. I admit I don’t use mine that often but I don’t want to get rid of it either.
