After over 4 years of R & D and prototyping now available a truly different light weight ski. Weighting in the 6 lb range, sporting mass centralization of the weight. What that means is nearly two thirds of the total weight is in the rear one third of the ski, leaving a feather light one third of the weight on the front on two thirds of the board. It has a contoured bottom to keep water out of the riders face. The ski sports an aggressive rocker for less board to water contact on take-off. Free 2-year rider warranty against catistrophic failure to original owner.
As an unbelievable fringe benefit, the new ski is proving to be nearly indestructible, the use of new lay up methods and the latest of space age materials seem to be making our new ski blank bullet proof. It comes with a 2-year full replacement warranty against catastrophic failure that renders the board un-rideable and the damage just occurs during normal use.
As a recreational novice rider what does that mean to me? Novice riders instantly notice a huge improvement in their control slaloming, responsiveness of the ski, higher jumping, and easier smoother landings. Without all the excessive cantilevered weight normally in front of the seat on all other ski blanks manufactured without mass centralization.
As a high-end rider, what does this new ski mean to me? Pro and high-end riders immediately fall in love with the new ride. All instantly discover that the most difficult maneuvers quickly become routine, and all agree aerial rotation becomes smoother, and easier to control. Extra altitude because of quicker foil response due to much less cantilevered front tip weight is also enjoyed. Most believe rotation reversal in mid air is just around the corner.
All novice, high end, and pro riders agree that no one can appreciate, or believe the huge improvement to the sport until you have experienced your first flight.

Air Chair’s challenge to the Hydrofoiling World….
Ride one of these new carbon lightweight skis, then live without one.
“The new Light Weight Carbon Fibre Board. Awesome! Cannot get over how light it feels in the air. All my inverts and rolls were higher with less boat speed.” ~ Brendan Gear
The new carbon board is sweet, as many of you know” ~ Brian Vesely
“My 2011 ski lasted 13 months with no signs of giving in. I put it through international damage (ski show on the ocean in China) as well as various events and wrecks. If you’re considering the investment in a new ski, don’t pass up the opportunity to own an AirChair lightweight board.” ~ Jake Bradley.
“Due to the weight distribution of the Air Chair lightweight carbon ski, there was a drastic increase in my riding.” – Landon Hill
“The Air Chair carbon board is the best lightweight board out there, I trust it to make it through crashes (i.e. coming up short on an air front flip) and 50-frame big air tricks. I absolutely love the fact the bottom of the board is not flat. In the water, this board rides, lands and recovers nicely on the surface. In the air, it has a nice distribution of weight through the board. Take the board to the water and see for yourself. ” – MJ Buckley
