    snowboard vs ski length

    oh hey guys. how is everyone doing? i'm new here, obvi. i'm from the praries where we have a 500 foot vertical hill we call a resort. i need to get out of here.

    i was wondering today why (on average) people ride ski's longer than snowboards? it dawned on me when i was watching the trailer for deeper, and they ride like 160's for splitboards. and your average ski is around 170 right? is it just because of less surface area? i dunno. discuss.

    1st - Tech Talk JONG

    2nd - most people around here ski on skis way shorter than 170. 170 would be like way long for a ski

    TGR lesson #1, we like to fuck with people here and be sort of mean. It's strictly for sport, don't take offense. Play along if you'd like, but really this should be in Tech Talk, he wasn't fucking with you on that one.

    My johnson is 170, and even has a split-kit in case I pick up two chicks. The skillsaw cut was a little rough, but once it's done it's done.
