Hi Nobody :-)
I actually owned a pair of Freyries, which I bought in Denver, aged 17, in 1974; I kept them for several years, then broke the tail of one, in Vail, when some Texas two-stepper woman skied right in front of me from a lateral, irregular move she made.
I endo'd, and rolled forward off my back, and the tail drove itself into the snow, and CRACK... the bimbo skied off on her way-too-expensive Vokyls (the ones I coveted at the time), and I had to limp off the hill on a ski-n-a-half.
Was the only pair I'd broken since graduating off of 'woodies' as a child... until I bent a pair of Lacroix Mach III's.

Two other brands I skied on and that aren't anymore:
- Freyrie (see one model here http://cgi.ebay.it/sci-adulto-marca-...QQcmdZViewItem
I think they now make water skis only)
- Straver (first fiberglass ski my mother owned..somewhere 1966-1970)
