im gonna build my own skis
Ok, first off, i know how to fiberglass/carbonfiber, shape wood and all that other good stuff (longboard construction) and i wanna try making a pair of skis. bout 173cm, and pretty wide. i was thinkin bout maybe puttin in some kind of grind plate, but i dunno. I don't know where to get P-tex base material, or edge material. if you know anyplaces where i could buy this stuff, help me out. thanks, and what do you think? u think i can do it?
if you make em ill ride em as long as i can say im on your team

How many snowboarders does it take to screw in a lightbulb?
10, 1 to do it, and 9 to say 'I can do that.'

hey, im makin um for myself. my 1260s are a little to short. if they turn out real good, i might sell a few
I could be wrong, but don't you need a machine or else they will come out super cheap?

DatGrlyChick: whats that?'
with the time and effort you put into making your own skis you can get a job and buy a good pair for yourself

You can order ptex from companies like KUU and TOKO. Some friends of mine made a snowboard when we were in highschool, and they rode it and it worked pretty good. let us know how it turns out.

yeah sounds like a cool little project to do. post some pics when you do it.
