SlideWright Ski & Snowboard DIY Tuning, Waxing & Repair 'Blog'

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I'm probably jumping the gun here, but a little feedback and prodding sometimes helps get a project down the road farther.

I've been messing around with various options for creating and continually develop a database of concise and expanded tuning, waxing & repair tips and opinions, along with insights on the various tools and supplies we do and will offer. In addition, leveraging our graphic and multi-media backgrounds to facilitate communications and understanding, I've settled on a Blog Format to address the numerous topics, FAQs and developments as things evolve and we increase our own knowledge base.

So........as a means of an announcement and looking for helpful critiques, beta testing, topic ideas and whatever feedback comes to mind, here is the current (soon to change) link to the:

SlideWright Ski & Snowboard DIY Tuning, Waxing & Repair 'Blog'

This will be a dynamic blog, including editing of already written topics. It will include:
1) Pictures and graphics of tools, supplies and techniques.
2) Video clips & animations to help show and hear how to perform various tasks
3) An RSS feed capability where you can subscribe to the archives & quickly select topics from your browser.
4) A comment section to ask questions, provide additional info or critiques, etc.
5) A search function to find what you need quickly.
6) Other stuff as we dream them up and additional options become available or understood......

Currently, we have 2 dozen topics (with many more to follow) listed and many are simply 'placeholders' for now until we can get time to research, stage & take the photos, videos, create animations, draw details and write the text, etc as an ongoing process and as time and mojo allows.

Please check it out, pass it along and provide feedback and participate.

Most excellent! For something you are "messing around with" you sure do have a lot of great information up there.

One thing that I think most guides forget about is asking "who" their reader is. Many "tips" are really for real race tuners where hundreths count in the standings sometimes. Sorting out the stuff that you need to do from the stuff that isn't really relevant is tough to do sometimes. It seems like what you have put together has a variety of information. Great work. I will be reading.

In the tradition of Lou Dawson's iconic "does epoxy kill foam skis", how about a
"what happens if you deliberately over-fluoro a ski"?

In theory, if you followed instructions and used a hydrocarbon base (ie Maplus Race Base), the fluoros would be overlays and not provide sufficient impact on bases.....eh?

(Interesting thought. Wanna sacrifice a pair of skis for the cause and over-fluoro them?)
