Nothing anyone is going to wet their pants over, but I made this in 10th grade wood shop. Actually one of the most fun skis I ever had (as a kid)
Ash and mahogony with walnut in the center on the bottom. Double concave!:)devil :|err
This was about 1974.

Interested in buying vintage waterskis

I collect fine vintage waterskis as a hobby. My main focus is slalom skis. The skis must be in excellent shape. If anyone has vintage skis they want to sell please send me some pictures and I will let you know if I am interested in purchasing the ski. In addition, I have a lot of knowledge on the subject of vintage skis and I can help with any questions you may have about the skis.

I have an all original Andy Clark with case. Bought it new from Andy in the late 60's. Kids don't appreciate it now. Not cool. Don't know what it is worth. I would like to see it go to someone who would enjoy it.
Send me a message.

Contact Mike Bemis- 949-433-3043

He's out of Lake Arrowhead, CA. He bought and has all the rest of the Brad ski stuff.


What ever happened to Brad, I had a few custom skis made by him back in the 70's . That guy made everything from casting his skags to his bindings back then. I believe his shop was in Bellflower California back then. I heard somewhere that he was busted selling drugs in the 80's and lost everything. Hope that was a rumor. If he still is alive he's got to be old.

I have some vintage slalom skis I pulled out of a boat im semi restoring which is a 78. Skis appear to be late 60's to mid or late 70's.

These are all of our families MAHA skis. I have another photo of all of our skis but I need to dig it out. There is many more old skis in the other photo.
I have a maja exactly like the one second from right. Love that ski. Skiid on it 2 years ago at 78. The Lou's brothers( my sons) decided the technology was too old and I needed a more current ski. Skiid on one sons, but I prefer the old one.
