My thoughts are you’re either a sideways person or you’re not. Some of us take to a board more naturally and some feel far more comfortable heading straight forward. I have known great skiers and boarders of all types. Most struggle with the one they’re not focused on.. the rare ones feel right at home either way and kill it on both. Those are the special ones

I got decent on snowboard. I also skate ok in a pool and on a longboard. But skis just open more terrain safely. And I like mountaineering and backcountry skiing. So skis for me.

Back in the day, ripping Panorama top to bottom on a pair of RD Big Dogs. Holy crap they were fast. Think they were 210s and the longest ski I had ever been on before or after.
Friend of mine had a shop and he always had the coolest skis to demo along with him. He was also an amazing ski tuner and pretty fast on his boards.
My older brothers were racers and I always got their hand me downs. I hung on to my favourites, a pair of 204 K2 KVC’s and a pair of 195 Rossignol 4s. Both early 90’s and you can sure tell by looking at them, pink and teal. Great skis in their time. If it’s speed you’re after billbek I also have some 225cm K2’s in the garage. But good luck turning those friggin planks!
