Hi guys and gals. This is my first post here. I'm new to owning my own equipments so I really appreciate the info that's on here. Thanks!
I just got new skis for my girlfriend. She's 113 lbs and 5'4" and a total beginner (she skied once before on a baby slope last year). We bought the k2 Supersweet (2012) at 139 cm. They had no inventory at ~145 cm, the next length up is 153 cm. So I decided to go shorter because she's a beginner. However, I'm having second thoughts now if that's too short and she would grow out of it too quickly. Would the 153 cm be OK for her too?
For myself, I'm 168 cm tall and weight 140 lbs; an intermediate skier who wants to start doing double blacks. I got the K2 AMP Rictor ('12) at 167 cm. The next length down is 160 cm. I had my 167 cm tuned and waxed already, so I can't really exchange them. But for a FYI, which one would have been more appropriate for me?
