Success in W. Washington

Post by Thelongride » Sun Mar 22, 2020 6:34 pm

It's so very quiet on here, but thought I'd share a success story. Experimented with vacuum bagging for a while. Which I found to be quite ineffective, and promptly switched to a rigid compression mold. Skis are entirely carbon composite, with a paulownia core, and damping is achieved with VDS inserts. After a little testing I've been pleasantly surprised by their skiability despite the low weight

Anyone else out in Western Washington successfully building skis?
