In the race to build the lightest ski on the market, RadaR has taken a step back to look at what our goals truly are. The Strada has been touted as the fastest ski on the market by many. Far from the lightest ski on the market, the Strada acquires and maintains its speed through a superior rocker-line.
Shaving a few ounces off its weight to keep up with its ultra-light competitors resulted in a faster "feeling", albeit less stable ride. Thus RadaR was happy to remain middle of the road in the weight department.
Enter RadaR's newest creation, The Vice. Running the same proven rocker-line and bevel configuration as the Strada, The Vice mellows out the feel one step further by running a polyurethane core, opposed to the Strada's PVC core material. The result is a damper, more predictable flow through the turn's completion, with no loss of cross-course speed. The Vice starts with a polyurethane block that is then machined to exact specifications before entering the mold. You are left with the tightest-tolerance poly-core ski on the market.
Speed and predictability...'Nuff said.
Her 1-1/2 buoys at 41 feet off (10.25m) performance remains "Pending".
Connie Morris can't walk on water, but that's about the only thing she can't do.
She's mastered just about everything else.
She can slalom ski, trick ski and ski jump, and she's one of the best in the world at all three in her age group.
As a two-time national champion, she earned a spot on the USA waterski team that competed at the 35-and-over World Championships outside of Milan, Italy.
Even though she had to pay her own way, there was no way she wouldn't go.
"No. I mean how often do you get a chance to be on the U.S. team in a world tournament?" Morris says. "It was pretty exciting."
Connie won four medals in Italy: a bronze in trick, a silver in jump, and a silver in overall. But her favorite medal was the gold won by Team USA.
"The team had to win," Morris says. "That was the only thing that really mattered."
Morris lives in Scripps Ranch and works as an engineer for SDGE, but she does most of her skiing at Imperial Lakes,CA with her husband and two teenage children.
The 47 year-old skied competitively in college at SDSU and since then, has steadily improved.
Lastly, I’d like nothing I say to be taken too seriously.

During my recent trip to Europe, I met separately with Volker Engelhardt the owner of Razor and Alex Munninger the owner of Sans Rival. These two men have different personalities, but they do share a few key attributes. Each man is clearly convinced that their ski design and manufacturing is superior to any other ski on earth. More than anything, these two men share a profound enthusiasm for water skiing and building water skis.
Chico State student-athlete Andrea Neely recently captured the Division II women's individual all-around title at the National Collegiate Water Ski Association National Championships held in Buda, Texas, on Oct. 14-16.
