1) Look at the size of your current skis and consider if you like the length or prefer shorter or longer.

2) Remember that 2-3 cm is not going to make a huge difference. Over 5cm will start to make a difference in feel.

The chart below is for general reference based on your height, but you should also consider these other factors. . . 

Choose LONGER length if you:
- Feel your current skis are too small
- Want to ski faster & float better
- Are a heavier person so want more stability
- Are an expert, aggressive skier

Choose SHORTER length if you:
- Feel your current skis are too long
- Want easier maneuverability & float in powder is less important
- Are a light weight person and want more maneuverability
- Are a beginner, casual skier

The Artwork

Adam Haynes x J Collab

Back by popular demand, I'm doing another collaboration with artist Adam Haynes. Last year's 100 Friend "Pillows" skis sold out in only 10 weeks so I really wanted to give skiers another chance to own one of his amazing works of art on a ski. He created this new painting of an insane fantasy powder ridgelin that I'm putting on my new award winning "Metal" ski! We worked together to dial in areas that are transparent so you can see through the top graphic revealing the ski’s raw powerful construction of wood and metal to contrast yet compliment the raw paint strokes and soulful vibe of the painting. I couldn't be happier about how it all came out and stoked to be putting this masterpiece on my most award winning ski to date, The Metal!

This time I'm building 150 pair of these Limited editions, available now for pre-order, check the exact ship date under the add to cart button. Each ski is hand signed & numbered by me. You'll be 1 of only 150 skiers in the world with these rare one-of-a-kind limited edition J's on your feet!
