Plake does NOT ski short skis...shaped or wide does NOT mean you must go short. Maybe when he's doing stuff on small mountains or some bumping he goes shorter.

As a blast I rode one Willies 8 wheeled boards when I was about 12 (his board actually) as his shop was Downtown, Brampton, Ontario, Canada. Building is still there. Also saw this gas powered board at the same time. If I remember correctly he drove a dark blue convertible Stringray. Took overall in the skateboard competition held in Brampton and he was the big sponsor.
NOOO!!! Old skis should be retired with dignity, not to be turned into an Adirondack chair, fence, wall decoration, or the worst--a shot ski. Take them to the landfill; if they were good to you they will be reincarnated as a reverse-reverse carbon fiber powder ski. If they weren't they will come back as snowblades or monoskis.
How would you feel being part of a wall, just left there for people to gawk at? You plan to be either buried or incinerated don't you? If you don't care for burying there's always a Viking funeral. Put the skis on a boat, douse them with lighter fluid (I learned that little trick from Jimi Hendrix; Vikings didn't have lighter fluid), set them on fire, push them out into the lake. Seems fitting, given that the Vikings seem to have invented skiing.
