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
