COMMENTS:
This is the first pair of skis that came out of the press that Kelvin and I built.  The design is  a simple, directional twin-tip.  The skis also feature an asymmetrical design with the inside sidecut using a 25m turning radius and the outer sidecut using a 21m radius. The core consists of three types of wood: maple, cherry (Jatoba) and birch.  The skis have wood sidewalls, primarily because it was easy to make, but to ensure that water does not  damage or rots the core, we applied a coat of wood sealant
