OAC 2011/2012 T&T

Post by OAC » Mon Feb 06, 2012 4:47 am

Finally some skiing!
The skis have been ready for a while...
I brought my "Wolverines", derivates from the famous "OAC-8" to Trysil in Norway.
And needles to say, these are the best skis I have ever owned/used! Hahaha :D

Glad you love the skis. Its an amazing feeling when everything works out as planned.

I tried about 20 different skis today at a trade show and at the end of the day I went back to mine and liked them the best. Of course I was a little biased though!

Nice turns in the vid! I wish we had some of that snow here but we used it all up last season.

I have no idea where Trysil is but I remember the name from the video game I like to play that is on this website. Check it out.

That's great! I have yet to ski on my commercial skis this year. My last 2 pair have been so much fun I see no reason to go back.

No it's my screen printing test on a totally different paper. First black, then white on the black bottom.

... did you see the email I sent you?
There might be problem...

I haven't skied on a commercial ski in about 3 years. I used to still take some up as backup, just in case something broke, but no longer. It is such an awesome feeling to break free and trust (and enjoy!) your own hard work!

Yup

I tried a pair of ARG's last year, took them out for a couple days cat skiing, but other than that haven't skied anything but my own "product" for a few years now :D

Nice work Jan! Nice style!

You don't even have a legit signature, nothing to reveal who you are and what you do...

Best of luck to you. (uneva)
