Ok, so here is a question for those that go "both ways."

 

How similar is a pond skim to waterskiing?

 

My girlfriend is trying to convince me to do this, and I am wondering whether I should embrace my waterski instincts or don't fall for into that trap.

 

At my disposal, I have a set of 183 Atomic Sugar Daddies, and a 189 set of of Kung Fujas. Daddies are 99 waist, Fujas are 95. Because of a change in how length is measured, the Kung Fujas are actually about 4-5 inches longer. The Daddies have almost no sidecut.

 

Which is better- length vs width and less/no sidecut? Or should I just use the sugar daddies so I don't have to dunk my newer bindings on the Kung Fus?

I would go with the wider ski for sure. It's the first smack on the water you have to worry about. After that it's smooth sailing.
