I am a boys 3 skier, 130 pounds, six feet tall, ski the course only while in tournements. PB- 4.5 @ 15 off, 36 mph. I have only been in the course durring my three tournements, but I'm a very technical skier, west coast approach during turns, but traditional "non compressed" stance during wake crossings. For about a year now iv been skiing on my dads old 1980's Connelly concept 67" with a green bottom. (remember those?) with double powershells. (again I consider myself to be a pretty advanced skier just don't have opportunities to be on the course.) well we have decided that it is time to step it up and our initial thought was a Goode 9900, syndicate a1 or s1. Now iv heard some bad things about goodes breaking and what not so my mom has ruled Goode out for me so now we are torn between s1 or a1. Apparently s1 is supposed to be a 34 mph ski but since I'm so far behind technology would I feel any differance? Just trying to find out which ski would be better for my style or if I wouldn't be able to differentiate. any help would be greatly appreciated!
