I ran a search and found some useful info, but nothing all that recent. Its been a while since I've been on a trick ski, but I'd like to get back into it just for fun. I have a few older kidders with Wiley's trick wraps in the garage, but these are maybe 20 years old.
I'm 5'10", 200 lbs. right now. I am working on reducing the weight, but chances are I'll be heavier at the start of any season. I could be as high as 220. At 190 I'm about as lean as I'll ever get.
What brand should I look at?
Binding set up? (Do I really need a hard shell?)
Rubber or hard edge?
I probably won't ever try any tow tricks, at least not in the short term. I am too old and brittle for that.
Bonus points for what I should get my 12 going on 13 year old who has never been on one and is just learning the course. I think he's under 120 lbs. but growing.
