Brothers Morgan and Caleb Weinberg have been skiing their entire lives. That background, along with their knowledge of the construction industry and experience in fibreglass work, prepared the brothers to start making their own skis. When construction work ground to a near halt in 2010, the two decided to try their hand at making their own skis, and thus was born Romp Skis.
The winter of 2010 was a busy one for the Weinberg brothers as they made eight pairs of skis using the construction tools they had on hand. The look of the skis wasn’t much to brag about, but they handled well. The brothers gave those skis away, and feedback proved out how much fun the skis were. The brothers rented a factory space and spent the next year perfecting the manufacturing system, and investing in the right tools. In the past decade, Romp Skis has grown immensely, but the root is still the same—meticulously designed and crafted skis that make skiing more fun for each of their customers.
Romp Skis handcrafts their skis so that they can tailor them to your specific skills and needs. With custom skis, you can maximise your own skills and ski in your style. The builders customise the flex and damping-off of the ski. Using lightweight materials as well as their Countervail, the skis reduce fatigue and increase edge hold while reducing chatter. The brothers have so mastered their craft that not only have they picked up several awards, they’ve also been featured in just about every ski magazine and web site out there.
Getting a pair of custom skis from Romp Skis is a simple process of selecting the features that you want. Their web page walks you through the options, helping you to choose what best matches your style and level. A full custom ski shape starts at $2000, and you’ll get every penny’s worth out of it just in the sheer enjoyment of finally being at one with your skis.
