About to pull the trigger on Surface Watch Life..HELP

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Okay, so I've posted on here several times about a mid-fat all mountain skis, but I have finally zeroed in on the Surface Watch Life. I'm having a sizing dilemma though, I'm leaning toward a 182 but I don't know if they will be too big, or if the 172 will he too small. I'm an aggressive skier, advanced level I would say. I'm 6'0", 160-165lbs and currently ski a k2 press at 179 which I'm very comfortable on. I would be using these as an everyday ski on the east coast. I will ski 10-15 days out west per year and about 5 powder days in the northeast. The rest of the days will be cruiing groomers and trees. The occasional bump run and park lap as well. Any opinions would be appreciated. Thanks!

If you're dead set on the Watch Lifes, certainly go with the longer length.  The 182 WILL NOT be or ski too long @ 6' tall even if you could use a few cheeseburgers.  The surfaces have a decent amount of rocker, meaning those 182s will ski more like 172s than a traditional 182, especially in pow when the tip starts planing. 

 

Enjoy!

Thanks for the help! I think I'm going to jump on a pair of 182 unless i get persuaded someway else. Another thing I'm also skeptical about is if the 100mm waist will be too wide for the days when I don't get powder and just cruise or lap the park. I've heard they were good all over the mountain, and that is my main intention with this ski.
