That was $152 net spent wisely not including shipping of course. The first thing I plan on doing to my $800 blank is pulling out some bondo and relacing my fully adjustable fin with my 1990 Connelly HP fixed ride although in this case it appears to be off of an old Concept. Sucks to be him or the next guy on the list. Man I hope UMP does not see that or it will be his!;)

Great price though!!

When selling/buying a ski always buy the longest ski available. That way you can shorten it for skiers that require a shorter ski! Also offer to paint it any color they so choose!;)

I have just about filled my entire tunnel! A little glaze, primer and finish coat and I am going to hit the water. Leroy! I get that he is honest just not very sharp. I do not see the value of a heavily modified ski that appears to not be of this Earth. Monza? Filled, drilled and any fin you had lying around? I have a few of these I could make right now. Ski Pot Pouri!:D

The kids like grandpa in the garage Actually, he is supposed to be in the mountains in Fillmore,Ca on the condor refuge. He used to work cattle up there with my husbands side of the family when they owned the property. Just haven't had a chance in ..... 14 years. That is what the hubby uses as an excuse so gramps is now a funny story to all the family.
