A coworker of mine gave me an old woodie slalom that I use as a step off ski. He also gave me these......

They look like 1st generation trick skis....I've gotta give 'em a try sometime. Anybody seen anything like this and/or can offer up some history....what do I have here????

They are a pair of skis and the label on them is "Turnabout"

I have! Wasn't mine though. I tried to talk the owner out of it with no luck.

I am going out on a limb and saying those are "Wooden" skis! I could be wrong but a simple test should determine if that is wood or composite!8p Cool none the less! I have old crap we throw in the water all the time just to say we did it! Fun stuff. Not for the wall yet!;)
