The Ski-Doc Workstation

After seeing a post earlier today with one of these in the photos I did what I do best, a bit of searching. I came up with this.

First off I want to say wow what a great product! Exactly what every fin tweaker needs. I think it would be even better if the bottom had a drawer that could hold, screw drivers, angle gauges, calipers, ect. Made in USA makes it even better. At $179+$15 shipping it is a little steep in my opinion for a work bench...

Here is the info

The Ski-Doc is the perfect tool for working on your slalom ski. The
workstation holds the ski in any position needed to make adjustments
without the risk of dropping or damaging the ski. The Ski-Doc is
constructed from a material that will not scratch your ski. A tray is
conveniently located on the workstation for screws, tools or other
parts needed while working on the ski.

You can buy it from Miami Ski Nautique, Performance Ski and Surf, Travers ski school or on the company's website http://theskidoc.com

Made in Florida
See it in use at:
Palm Beach Training Center / Chet Raley
Jack Travers Ski School
Matt Rini - O.C. Waterski Club
The Wilson Bros.

Will Asher, Boris Laval, Jon Travers, Chet Raley use it. It was used at Skierpalooza image

    Adjust fins with hammer and screwdriver!
    Am I a jumper that wants to be a slalom skier? Or a slalom skier that wants to be a jumper?

    While that is very cool I don't adjust enough fins to justify spending that kind of coin.

    I cannot see anything there that a good bit of DIY would not sort out, probably 30 minutes work, and your done.

    A router and a bit of HDPE and you could have the same thing in a few minutes...

    SAMs Club sells huge composit cutting boards for $11. Looks almost like the same material. Couple of those would work fine. Plan on making a couple and giving as gifts.

    Yea if you have time to spare. Or you can let these guys get it right so you can put it together and be done.

    You can build a ski-tuning bench that works with a couple of logs and a chainsaw too. I don't mind paying a guy for his R&D on a slick product that works well and adds a little bling to my passion.

    I say we should at least be nice to anyone developing stuff for our tiny sport. FYI- I would never build my own and am looking forward to the un-boxing.

    I built something a few years back out of 2x4's, duct tape and foam. It's getting pretty hammered.

    Let's see it! Un-box away!

    Unfortunately anyone who is a big tweaker is probably a DIY/tinkerer guy who like the challange of building their own master piece, just because. I think it is a nice item. I still use the tail gait of my truck or the boat's swim platform.
