I know Philpug already knows about Michael Lish's "On-site handbuilt skis" operation where he will build you a custom ski for $333 using his trailer-workshop towed behind his pickup truck. Check it out:
Custom skis built to your tip, waist and tail widths, flex, camber, rocker and rise, length...etc. with a core of Finland birch in 3 hours for $333 (with a 2-season warranty and money-back guarantee if you're not stoked about them) from a trailer behind a pickup truck? Yes. You can even order a pair of "test skis" for $222 to test your geometry and flex pattern with a plain-vanilla clear topsheet and no frills, then order your $333 final boards.
Finland birch wood core, sintered 2000 base, knitted fiberglass in triaxial and double bias, rockwell 52 edge stock, and formulated resin.
He claims a robust background in building skis and ski factories (ScottyBob, Wagner Custom, Yama 5150 snowboards, Arbor Snowboards...etc.)
Check out the videos and photos of the skis and the building process at the site.
Fresh thinking. Fun idea. Might be fun skis too! For $333, you can get a couple different pairs for the year...
