Hey everyone! I just finished making a Classic inspired Water ski for fun. it was a super fun process. Started off with a mold, and steam box, got some nice wood from a store called Austin Hardwood in Santa Ana, Ca. I steamed the wood, put it in the mold, after that cut the shape i wanted, bottom concave, and glassed it like you would a surfboard, with fiberglass cloth and polyester resin, that way it wont snap when jumping the wake. Gave the ski a polish, put some old bindings on and went for a ride. The ski is super fun! I want more people to get out on water skis and enjoy the fun we all have at the river. Make your own! or i am currently in the process of making another one. Maybe a loaner ski for folks to try, or maybe if they kick off start to sell them? But the main thing is fun on the water, which is all of our goal.
