Thanks NYSB!!!!

It is appropriate on this Thanksgiving Day that I thank NYSB for selecting me as the winner of the  custom ski contest. After being selected, I started the process with Vin at Whiteroom Skis of designing  every aspect of my new boards. Information was provided to Vin about my current ski dimensions, what terrain I prefer, skiing style. Then it was time to present my ideas about dimensions, rocker, camber and turning radius. It took some back and forth, but a decision was made that combined positive qualities in both of my current skis.

They are 175 length, 130/90/115 with a 15.5 turning radius. There is 6mm camber with a 22cm tip rocker providing a medium-plus flex.

Next was designing the top sheet. Not being a very artistic fellow, I presented Vin 3 drawings. After some suggestions by Vin, we settled on a variation of one of them.

I received them yesterday! The quality is fantastic. Everything I imagined they would be.

Once again Harv, THANK YOU!!!
Happy Thanksgiving to all the NYSBloggers!

Glad you like them greenlight!

Just to be clear, we used a random number generator to pick the winner!

If I had won I would have sent them a full frontal of Kim Basinger to split down the middle.

Would that be tips up or tits up

It’s funny how that sort of indicates age isn’t it? I would have figured Pee Tex for a Raquel Welch fan though.

The Basinger photo shoot was considered one of the best of all times.
