Before I got my first pair of Wubangers I had 4 different pairs of skis one for powder, groomers, park, and deep powder. With the option of being able to design your own skis you can combine the best part of every ski you've enjoyed into one!! I personally designed my skis to shred big mountain, play in the powder, and jib on a daily basis. With a 187 length, 131 tip, 111 waist, and 128 tail my skis give me the option to straight line shoots at mock speed as well as trick off kickers and rollers all day.

Ever want to design your own skis? That is what Howard Wu wanted to do so he started Wubanger a couple years back and is starting to build a following by crafting some of the finest custom skis out there. Check them out at the new Twin Peaks Ski Shop this winter.

Why Wubangers? Why have 10 different pairs of skis when you can design a single pair of skis that does everything rad known to man…

The Wubanger Zion

I made these skis pretty much symmetric so that is easy the flip around from skiing regular to switch and added a tapered tip and tail for less swing weight when making turns in pow or spinning off features.  I also designed the skis to be super stiff under foot for stomping landings and holding an edge. The  tip and tail are flexy so that they are still playful and super buttery, and I put on a dope top sheet designed by my very own sister Melissa Fabbri.  Check out some Wubangers and grab yourselves a pair of this years model, semi-customs (mine or any other world wide ripper), or exactly what you want and design your dream ski.
