G'day everyone, i'm Matt. I've recently moved near the snow in Australia and decided to get into skiing.
i've had a couple of beginer lessons and to save some money i picked up an X rental set of skis with bindings and boots and poles. for a couple of hundred $ for the lot
I've only got a rough idea on how to ski but seem to have picked up the basics fairly easy and am still undergoing a few lessons and basic runs.
I had a few questions about my gear though that i purhcased. It's a bit old and the other day the ski shop said he won't touch it as the bindings were old..
The skis are already adjusted to my weight and my boot so it's not a problem but he said he can still wax it for me and egde it
I'm not sure on the edging factor. i know waxing is like waxing sandboards but i don't know if it's different for skis. also what is the edging and why does it matter?
i'll post up a few photos and specs that i know of for my skis boots and bindings.
I was hoping someone could enlighten me as to what sort of skis they are if they are any good for me as a begginer and if i'd be ok with those bindings.... Some stores say it's bad others say i'll be fine on begginer slopes having fun
Well other than that i can't wait to get skiing and i'm totaly happy i now have my own ski gear even if some is cheap hehehe.
Pictures below.. Oh did i get the ski height right? i'm 182cm tall the skis are roughly 170cm i think. And i weigh about 90kg roughly, lolz no jokes on my weight guys :P
Just mostly wanted to know if these skis were good for a begginer/intermediate and if everything was the right size and well if it's bad or good gear. I'm only going on what i was told when i bought them
