was reading 'mountain life' magazine here in vancouver (see link to article below to read it in full...very interesting)
and it featured this young innovative 28 yr old gent named Sheldon Stockman who came up with these unique skis, what he calls ''the world's first omni-directional schmearing utensil''--183 cm long, 180mm waisted, these have a rocker, a reverse sidecut AND an ''added 3rd sidecut curvature'' ...every side of the ski acts like a tip, he says....''it's basically like a giant spoon''.
of course he's had naysayers every step of the way, but it didn't deter him
(so kudos to being innovative and courageous in his vision)
..and he's proved them wrong, too, it seems.
link to magazine article is below so you can read it in full:

his website has more information on the design: http://www.garywayneskis.com/garywayneskis.com/Home.html
below is a link to a video showing him in action (even on groomers...you can see how they're ''omni directional'' even: http://cm.mountainlifemag.ca/2010/11/garywayne-skis%E2%80%93-video/
he hopes to start more production later this yr but right now it's a boutique market (his own words).
what do you guys think, keeping an open mind?
