First time on site....hope I have this right
I'm a just getting back into skiing, and could use some help finding right slalom ski?
I am 49 yrs old (beginner/intermediate) can usually get up on single ski...deep water
Also, I weigh between 220 - 225 lbs....I believe I would like to ski in the 29 - 31 mph range
- nothing too radical, however, I do like to pull hard, and could use bit of help with turns
Currently have a Connelly Big Daddy....would like something a bit more aggressive...something that
might through up bit of rooster tail once I get my turns down pat.
Welcome back to the H2o!
I agree with Chef and the 69" Theory would work great. I would also suggest slowly bumping your tow speed up to at least 34 mph on the open water. Most ski's will perform So much better at the increased speeds. Otherwise, the ski's will ride much deeper in the water and create excess drag which negates performance and will physically wear the skier out prematurely. (even the Theory will feel better @ 34mph on the open water. -I have one and have done it!)
Radar: P6 or Theory HO: Magnum or Triumph Connelly: Outlaw or V
Those will all be pretty similar, the first being the wider of the two.
Spray is a function of your skiing, not the ski. You will build progressively
larger spray as your body positioning on the ski become better and more leveraged.
