got a link from ttips.com been lurking around ever since.
you guys are beyond hardcore!
do you also use some kind of computer program to come up to design your skis?
how do you figure out the dimensions?
i got so many questions to ask...

hi tele-bum, welcome to the site!
for drawing up the skis i like to use a simple CAD program that lets me print out a full-scale drawing over multiple pages. most programs that you can get for free on the web will work, for example turbocad is a good, easy program to work with.
i define my dimensions first by simply selecting the waist width of the ski. the other dimensions (tip and tail width) are then determined by specifying the turning radius. a lot of it right now is just going by feel but hopefully we'll start to use some our engineering skills to design our skis in a more mathematical manner.
feel free to ask as many questions as you want. it's pretty much the main purpose of the forum.
