I have had this bullshit idea for awhile now, finally putting some pen to paper and making it happen. Paper template MDF template Bases cut Edges glued

Out of the press after a bunch of hours, I had the top sheet on this pair printed even though it is quite boring per my wife. I told her she can put anything on the next pair, hoping for some rocket s

Late night but got them finished and bindings mounted up. They are far from perfect, but definitely skiable. I forgot to order the beveling bit for the router so I improvised with what I could find lo

Also got a few laps on them yesterday. Leave @AtomicSkier's pair completely unchanged from these, he looked like he actually enjoyed being on a "playful" ski! As he said though, amazing to hop on these knowing what went in to them and them skiing really well. I'd be curious to get them into some moguls; I think they'd be pretty fun in some soft bumps given how maneuverable they felt.

Thanks everyone, glad you are enjoying the content if it ever gets old or boring let me know. I will do one additional post on this pair and then I think it will be on to the next pair. This has been an awesome learning experience and I am really enjoying it a lot. Its fun to get creative!

So as I mentioned earlier I think I will eventually have some delam issues with this pair. The first pair I used way to much epoxy, so I wanted to cut back on this pair but I think I went a little to thin. While cutting the tip on one ski I found a soft spot that needed some additional work. After the ski was cut and finished I opened up the soft spot, poured some epoxy in and clamped it over night. ae9d4abf7a89d56f0d5865a6e0df4eb1.jpg

After the fix it looks better but is still not perfect.

Overall I’m pretty happy with this pair, as mentioned I learned a few more things to take into the next pair. The shape felt pretty good overall, perhaps the mount point could be moved around a bit. For what I was going for they are also a bit soft in the tip and tail so I will add some core thickness to the next pair. With everything else remaining constant and only a core thickness change it will be fun to ski the two skis back to back. Overall I’ll count it as a success and I’ll count pair 1 as a fail.

On to the next pair!
