    I should shut up about that until we meet in person again.

    I will suggest and get for myself the UL core and hybrid layup just for the sake of weight in case we all end up skinning this season. But I'm banking on a vaccine for Christmas.
    No way can we survive without the merry consumer season.

    Revised Kusala Size Poll

    ^^^did not consider that at all until you posted it... dammit! I donít think it changes my mind on layup (depending on what options become available), but itís a STRONG point I will obsess about for sure.
    Fear, Doubt, Disbelief, you have to let it all go. Free your mind!

    I would reconsider increasing the tip height. IMO, you risk reducing the frictionless feel and giving it more of a plowing feel. The Kusala that I still love is amazing at slicing through powder and keeping your speed up when crossing between different depths and consistencies of snow (or when landing drops). With a reverse camber ski you don't need tip height or a soft tip to get the ski to float and not submarine. That's because there isn't camber working against you. Just my 2 cents.

    Very cool to see this ski brought back, and in a longer length. I agree that ~2 cm in the tip and body is likely the right call.

    Keith and I talked about the Kusala today. Here's some pics of him looking a Kusala over while wearing his invisible man mask. He reminded me that he had cnc'd the reverse camber mold for the Kusala for me when we made it. We hit on some talking points and he's going to get an order page up and we'll meet again next week as we finalize design details.

    I was up at the Praxis factory again last week and Keith said he'd gotten buried on something else for a couple weeks and he'd get that page up on the website this week.
