    I kinda feel like I did not learn much. Mostly cause you could feel Adam's brain spin up like a 747 jet engine with millions technical thought explanations at the ready but reality struck and all stopped while he pondered these thoughts......"Why even try. Non of them accept a few will even understand what I'm talking about. I'll just say 'science' over and over and see how that goes." With what little bit he did say...very intriguing..and maybe that is marketing genius.

    That was cool. Just enough information to get a person very interested.

    Awesome to see a couple guys doing their own thing and designing something unique.

    It's an exciting time for water skiing products.

    @wish I talk to @AdamCord all the time. No idea what he is talking about most of the time but it is entertaining

    Somewhere along the way Adamx2 explained they started on this journey because they really just wanted to understand how skis worked and how to build a better one. They had tons of questions which led to tons of ideas the wanted to test. The did not set out to start a ski company - it was an obsessive hobby. Even now they are not really marketing. They do think its time to let others try it and see what a wider test team thinks. After that we will see where things go. I love trying new skis and offered to ride one and fortunately Caldwell agreed. It is really interesting and different. It likes to get wide and stay wide. It rips turns. I need to dial in the set up before I am really comfortable on it (1.5 rides thus far) but they are definitely onto something.

    What sizes will be produced? Another MOASS company only makes their skis in 1 size and says it "fits all". Same logic? @CaleBurdick @AdamCord @adamhcaldwell
  • CaleBurdickCaleBurdick Posts: 57 Open or 55K Rated Skier
    @MattP a bigger size is being made too. At this point it is kind of a 68 inch. I'm not sure what @adamcaldwell has planned for different sizes other than the 66 and 68(a big 67)

    @AdamCord may be the master at talking without explaining anything.

    @adamhcaldwell That's a surprisingly useful skill for an engineer who finds himself on the business side of things! I'm still working on it.

    Incite!? Freudian slip, perhaps. You guys do seem to be inciting a revolution!

    Thats so thick that without reading it first, I thought it was the bench top. Dang... And all the while other ski companies are playing with thinner sidewalls in the tail.

    Depending on feedback, we might move the 67 to 68", and then plan interpolate the data to scale out a 65".
  • Than_BoganThan_Bogan Posts: 6,043 Mega Baller
    @adamhcaldwell I've always wondered to what extent one length of a ski is simply a scale transform of another size, vs. what is related to the properties of the real world and must NOT change scale for a different length of ski.

    An example might be if you've placed some kind of dimples on the ski bottom to cause the water to do something. If you scaled the size of those dimples along with the ski, it's possible they would behave quite differently.

    If it's pure scale transform, then making different lengths skis is relatively straightforward. (Or I guess I should say designing them would be trivial; making them is a different issue.)

    But if not, then a new size of ski could involve a ton of additional research to get right.

    Not sure you can comment on that on this forum, but I'm interested in whatever you can say.

    I've had the same questions regarding scaling since I've been riding 68"s. The course doesn't get scaled up so how do you make a 68" that turns like a 66"?
    Success is failure that just hasn't happened yet

    @Mateo Vargas it the same idea as "Jumbo Shrimp"

    @Wish thanks for the kind words, one of my good friends texted me after seeing that video to say I should probably hire a PR person to talk for me...

    @adamhcaldwell you have said enough. @everyone else...ignore him, he's crazy.

    @AdamCord Where do I apply for the job..?
