Kids Skis

Iím going to have to start looking around for a ski or combo skis that can be used as a slalom ski for my oldest girl.

I know if I jump on the one ski from the ďhouseĒ combo skis on my boat I can hardly turn.

Any Ideas of what ski/skis I should look for/at???

I know OíBrien makes the mapple jr but itís a 61 (may be too big). She is 80 lbs and a beginner but I donít think it would help her to be on a pair of low end combo or one ski from a low end combo set..

Any thoughts?

I'd just start looking for some short combo sets on ebay. If she takes to it, you can rebay it and upgrade to a kids comp ski.

To me, this forum is about love of inboard boats. It is about the sharing of information and, on a good day, some humor. It is not about post count, brand of boat, or any other superfluous labels that lend themselves to a false sense of superiority. Please, respect one another, try to pass on accurate information, and keep your eye on the ball.

I'm with Doug. I'm not sure I'd sink big money into something before I was sure.

I have a pair of OíBrien Contenders (58s) in the garage but the bindings are just like any other combo bindings and Iím sure they (the ski) perform like that too.

Let me know if/when you are going to go for something so we donít run the bid up on each other..
