Home Made Twin Tip water skis...
Ha, so at camp me and my friends tried to make this by just using peices of would, that we sand and cut down and they worked very badly firstly because they were completly flat so it wasnt really a twin tip but it we could ride switch but it was kinda gay. we tried 1's and 3's but that didnt turn out so well. Any experience with this? ahah because this is such a common field. There was a thread probably a couple weeks ago with actually twintip water skis but do you guys have any advice for making them?
please god dont tell me you spelt wood "would"
^yes, yes i believe he did. wow
HAHAHAH yeah seriously
hahahah i'm dying
Pictures I guess? Cool...?
wow, i spelt wood wrong? cool
i think your mising the purpose of the forum about him spelling wood wrong
it actually exist for real...
Trying to make your own water skis is gona be tough. Shaping would prove rather difficult and to mention all the time sanding it to perfection. Id say just get some from a water sports store
there is an actual company based out of eastern canada the company is called nations wakeskis
Yeah but not everybody has that kind of money. Dont make them out of one solid block of wood. press them with thin layers and epoxy like ur making a skateboard deck. Once u make a press its easy to make a several pairs.
just cut out a shape like this.. (ill try to draw it with keyboard stuff watch):
the piece you need:
nail it together:
BAM! you now have a tip
bahahahhahahaha i never caught it at first.... funny.
thats almost as bad as faunt
make sure to get some stiff wood for your skis.
There are some guys in quebec that made some twin tip waterskis...and you can demo them at d-structure
