I was going through my old pictures when I came across my first monski. This was the first of two riser plates I designed in the early 1980s that used a conventional ski. The plate worked pretty good but in powder, it was like a submarine going for a crash dive. The bindings were a Marker M4-12 that were bomb-proof. I used these as the bindings were secured under the boots allowing a shorter and lighter plate (and these were not light). I think the ski was a Rossignol Strato that were painted over and some graphics of various ski areas placed over. What I did back then to get attention. And no, I did not have the yellow "Big Bird" suit back then (that was 10 years later).
These pictures were taken in the summer of 1985, hence the green snow.
