K2 Public Enemies Good for me?

Hey all,

I'm a recent switch from snowboarding to skiing, after having boarded for over four years. I am a heavy park rider, rarely venturing out. I'm quite big (6'5" 200 pounds), and wanted to make sure I get a ski that is going to stand up and do well for me. I got some k2 Public Enemies in a 174 length. Would those work well in the park? I want to make sure I can grind/jib/jump well, not washing out on landings etc. Or should I stick to some Fujatives, which are much more buttery, but seem to be a bit more flimsy, especially for a guy of my size. I can pick up on sale. These are 07 models, which is fine until I can save up some more cash.


I picked up Marker Jester bindings and Nordica Supercharger Spark boots as well, to complement the skis.

the public enemies are very strong skis and are not flimsy but they are an all mountain ski and are not a true twin tip because the tip width in the front is bigger than in the back I think if you are going to spend your time 100 percent in the park then I would look at 4frnt skis or rossignol scatch fs

I know that line is a good ski company but I haven't looked at them that much so I can't say yes or no to the invaders. Personally I think that you should do a whole lot of research to find your right ski and also go to a local ski shop and they will show you several options and then you make a descision that is well informed. As for the companies that I know. K2 I have the P.E. And it is a great ski and I also like to sometimes venture out of the park so if you are in the park so much go with a park oriented ski and center mount. As for 4frnt my cousin has the tnk and he loves them and he is a heavy set kid. Rossis my friend has and he likes them he is actually trying to decide to either get new scratch fs or get the jon olssen pros which are really light and my friend is also a twig. I say do research.

I will venture out of the park. I just want something that isn't too heavy. Do PE's have problems with rails? I remember hearing of cracking issues.

the cracking is on the top sheet if I think that is what ur talking about. The topsheet cracks and falls off sometimes because of the edges cutting into the top sheet when crossing your skis. I think the p.e.s should be okay for you
