    @Horton where are your comments for the Goode 9970 you received a while back? What size pinapple did you get?

    @wawaskr the 9970 is also waiting for warm weather.

    My Pineapple is a 65

    Would you say that the concave depth is similar to the Denali?

    @lakeaustinskier it is different. Without measuring I would say pineapple deeper with more volume.

    For some reason people want to compare these two skis. I really don't think they are particularly similar.

    Wondering if @cougfan and our Wed Night Crew can start showing up every week to ski in your "cold" water. Looks like perfect Stokes suit conditions.
    Just need to figure out the commute!

    Could you post pictures of the ski? I love the look of carbon done well. I think it makes the prettiest skis. I always wanted a Sans Rival, just because I thought it was the best looking ski I had ever seen. I am curious about the ski, because it is the biggest “unknown” in current releases and knowing how good the Nano One was, which everyone says was his design

    The water level looks a bit low for skiing
    Shut up and ski

    Is the tunnel as V shaped as it looks in the video? Fascinating thinking if so. Anyhow, I look forward to hearing about the ski's performance!

    @aupatking but is the Pineapple as beautiful as the Elite was ? I will admit that I couldn't ski on that thing - I just wanted mount it on my wall.

    So hard to get a good picture of this thing to show how beautiful it is.

    @mbabiash Does the concave bottom actually have a hard crease (vs more constant radius) ? Photos in sun sure look like it.

    @skibrain Yes it is really a V shape

    Yes the lake is low. I have to ski next door at SkiWest

    @skibrain
    As @horton said it is 100 percent a v shape bottom from tip to tail but there is a small radius in the middle of the ski where the V meets. So not a hard crease
  • @Horton if you say "Yes it is really a V shape" I think that is why we are comparing it to the Denali, as my understanding is that's a V shape too. If you find them dissimilar I would be curious as to why? I have lots to learn about ski design and would be curious to know what I am missing here.

    @steeliejunkie The Denali C75 is tunnel is more subtle. It is shades of grey I suppose.

    I hear @dirt is on his way down to try the ski with @horton. :wink:

    Got to see one of the skis in person and the carbon looks awesome. Hope to get to try one at some point.

    I watched Nick and Mike on the ski in September at Little Mountain, Nick at 36 and Mike at 34, I thought the ski looked great, and they both had good scores on it. When I wasn’t laughing at their antics, I was busy being impressed with the ski. I’d love to try one.
