2013 HO Freeride

Im in the market for a new ski. What are your thoughts on the HO Freeride? Im a intermediate skier on a public lake skiing behind a Cobalt 200. I was thinking about getting the Radar Senate, but the HO Freeride looks interesting too. I have no access to a slamon course. Just open water skiing in not so perfect water..

    That new HO Freeride with the unique sidecut really looks interesting. I want my wife to try one. @MarcusBrown seems really stoked about it.

    Yep, I watched the video... Looked pretty fun carving back and forth and jumping the wake every know and then..

    Another bump for the triumph. Mine is for sale on ski-it-again. :)

    I skied with it in public, open water 100% last season. Easy to pop up, VERY stable, etc.

    The part that is hilarious to me about both the Freeride and the Radar Satori is how the manufacturers are talking like they just now realized that there are people out there who ski on public lakes behind any old towboat and have to contend with less than perfect water. That describes about 95%+ of all of the people who will ever purchase a slalom ski.

    @mikey I have not skied on the Freeride yet (waiting for the box to show up) but everything I hear is good. I do not think you can go wrong.

    Also stay away from balls. They will suck the fun out of skiing and all the money out of your wallet.
