Hello fellow builders,

I came across this very well put together page on the Physics of Snowboarding and thought you might enjoy it.

Much of this is common knowledge for builders but its well worth the read to re-visit the concepts and stir up the imagination. I particularly appreciate the math equations that the author has amassed in this work. I don't know how I can use most of them in my design process yet, but now I know where they are and don't have to re-invent the wheel.

Feedback and opinions on this writing would be greatly appreciated.
Science is after all based on the peer review of theories.

I just did a google search for Alison Nordst Design of Alpine Skis and couldn't find much 4 search pages in.

Is that a book? Sounds like something I should read for sure! Thanks for sharing.
