Each flex has its advantages, but there are also some disadvantages worth considering to ensure you get the best flex for you. Softer skis tend to get nervous at higher speeds or technical terrain, they won't feel stable and won't lock into the snow. Really stiff skis can handle this faster, more technical riding better, but require more effort from you (the rider) when cornering at lower speeds. Most riders will probably find themselves somewhere in the middle, wanting a ski that is stable when riding faster and can run a few laps without feeling like they can't turn the board.
