    Re: Raising funds for Hurricane victims

    That's actually a pretty cool idea (to do a raffle). I'm not sure what the rules would be to do something like that on here but I've messaged an admin to see if it'd be possible! Thanks!

    Re: Conversion build # 2

    I'd have to agree. As a fellow conversion builder, these are some fun skis to ride. Still challenging to ride, but with plenty of power to play around with.
