This is Nationals week in the U.S. and Canada. The boys have skied many events over the years and have lots of quick tips to be best prepped for tournament time.
A friend of Chad’s forwarded me this podcast link and told me that Chad had specifically suggested that it be forwarded to me. For many reasons, I had misgivings about bringing this story back to the forefront. After listening to the whole thing I strongly suggest that anyone who knows Chad or has followed his story should listen to all 8 episodes.
In trick skiing, speed is the name of the game. We’ve worked hard to create a ski that moves from trick to trick faster than anything else on the market. The Graviton has one clean radius allowing the ski to carve smoother and roll on edge faster, making the ski drive faster to the next trick. The rocker profile, with a smaller flat spot, gives the ski the ability to spin effortlessly on toe tricks and gives it a cleaner water flow out the tip and tail for smoother loadings. Combining this with the CorFlex, GNR rails and concave in the tip and tail allows the ski to flex in the correct areas and makes the rope rock tight on landings to move to the next trick faster.

Brooks talks through the updated features of the all-new 2024 Vapor.
The first thing we addressed on the shape of the ski was the width profile, while keeping the max width of the ski the same; we added more radius to the profile to provide more pivot and rotational pull through the turn. We also added width behind the wide point to keep the ski more level and stable in the turn.
