I have seen here in the past, dealers selling Airchairs below average
retail (sub $700).  Where can the good deals be had this month?  Also
does anyone know where to find info on the new model that is out.  Is
it better?  For beginners, is it better?  Where and how much?

I hope they make a boat like you like, but...
I'm glad Correct Craft makes Ski Nautiques.

I read here last fall about a new model that was released, I think by
Mick Mack or one of those guys.  He apparently was one of the original
patent holders and released his own model.  I want to know if lesser
pricing is available on either model, and which would be most
appropriate for  a beginner to intermediate chairer.

It's called the Sky Ski and is built by Mike Murphy, one of the original owners
of Air Chair.  If you're interested, I believe that Tommy's Slalom Shop in
Denver is taking orders.

From what I have seen.  They are very similar.  The Sky Ski looks like it's
built stronger, but unless You're riding at a VERY advanced level, that won't
be an issue.

Hydofoiling is the most fun you can have behind a boat!

All Air Chairs are NOT created equal. Air Junky is one of those that
modify the older chairs & is now migrating to the new Sky Ski.
Mike Murphy, formerly of RBM (mfg. of Air Chair), has created a newer,
stronger, MUCH more aerodynamic, version of the popular hydrofoil based
ski, dubbed the Sky Ski.
We have a single pic of the sales flier on our front page, listed below,
for now. The new Sky Ski web page is also in the works & will be
annonced in the very near future.
They will be pricey still but if you've riden a tuned chair, you know
it's well worth it. The difference is like driving a Chevette & a
Corvette. Sky Skis will come in two models, a stock model with a
powdercoated seat & foil that will list for around $795. And the Super
Modified model shown in the pic, listing for around $1295, & sporting a
polished aluminum seat tower & foil. Both models will have a stronger
capped aluminum board with KILLER red, black, grey & white graphics,
much larger & thicker seat pad, bindings with footpads, & a MUCH
sturdier method of bolting the seat & foil together.
Watch for it, the Sky Ski is the ride of choice for riders with any
experience.

We are taking orders for both sky skis.  They are better for all levels of riders.  For more info on delivery call 1-800-592-7547.
Here are some of the changes you can look forward to.

Sky Ski

The SKY Ski has many changes that set it apart from the air chair.  First the seat tower is made of billet polished Aluminum
6061 T-G.  It has five times the strength of plastic and two times the strength of cast aluminum.
2. The seat pad is 3" thick and over two inches thicker than the Air Chair.  Landings are soft and riding is like floating on a
marshmallow.  A large cut out on rear of seat eliminates spine compression.
3. The ski is a punch in mold made with 2000 pounds of pressure.  It has less resin, which gives more strength and adds an
aluminum top for protection against handle dings.
4. Bindings have heel strap and foot beds are orthotic and secure feet into place for big jumps.
5. T-bar and wings.  The t-bar and wings on side of foil are completely new.  This foil has been designed to accommodate
riders over thirty miles an hour as well as beginners.  The foil is tuned for performance out of the box.  No filing or polish work
is necessary.
6. The front wing of the foil is larger for more lift.  The trailing edge is tapered to eliminate sticking while jumping.  The rear
wing has reverse taper on leading edge to allow more lift and higher smoother jumps.  The T-bar has an extra reinforcement
bottom piece for strength and much softer landings and great tracking.
7. The strut has through bolts through seat tower to eliminate play.

In summary there is little about the Sky Ski that has not been improved over past models.  The supply is short and the
demand is high for the most exciting product ever to be built for water sports.  While the Air Chair remains a great product, the
Sky Ski leads the field in cutting edge design.  You will see Mike Murphy in the air and sometimes in the water this summer at
Public lakes in Colorado and other parts of the world.  Order your Sky ski now and get ready for big air and great times.
