Water Skis Combo Pairs

Combo pairs are what most of us start out on. They are called combos because they can be used both in combination as doubles, or, singularly as a slalom ski (limited capacity OK for learning). Combo pairs are usually RIM (reaction injection mould) constructed or made of wood. There are varying forms of combo pairs as follows;

Traditional shape
This shape has been around for almost 50 years. These skis usually measure 170cm (67) in length and are fitted with adjustable bindings. They are also available in a junior or intermediate sizing around 145 cm (57) in length to suit small skiers and children. Some pairs are supplied with a removable plastic bar, with the purpose of keeping the skis together during the learning stages.
 
Wide body pairs
These innovative skis offer increased stability and a less tiring ride at reduced speeds when compared to traditional shaped skis. These skis are measured in square inches with adult pairs being around 450 to 500sq while the junior pairs are around 350sq.

Junior Trainers
Usually made of wood, these skis are now available in RIM. They are designed with a removable rope, or plastic bar, with the purpose of keeping the skis together during the learning stages. These have been designed for,and are ideal for teaching children.
