Dress Up Your Ski with a SkiSkin!

PBR Water Ski
Ski designs now adays are looking pretty hot... graphics like the new Connelly Prophecy and Radar Strata are rocking the ski world. But what can you do with your 'old faithful' stick that you just can't get rid of?

Well you could give it a new look for 2010 with one of Terry Winter's original SkiSkinz. I had Terry put one together for an older HO ski that we gave to Pabst Blue Ribbon beer in an effort to get them to step up to sponsor the pro ski tour.

This was my own first-hand experience with the SkiSkinz, and I have to say that it came out incredible. We took a ski from 2005, and it looked brand new after a quick, 15-minute application.

The toughest part about installing the SkiSkin is cutting around the edge of the graphic to make it match your ski. The high quality vinyl stickers that Terry produces come well over sized, so you'll have plenty of excess no matter what size ski you're using. No need to worry though -- this was my first try with a SkiSkin and it came out looking great. He's even making them for jumpers!

This is a great way to make your old classic slalom look brand new again. Terry can make custom designs, or you could choose from one of the ones in his gallery.

Highly recommended.
