By using only illustrator on my laptop, I created a family of arcs, each pointing back to an excel spreadsheet that rationed percentages based on length, midsole location and width. A cambered park ski I knew well. One by one a family of shapes came to life, all drawn to the scale of a legal size sheet of paper. It was our first semi-cap profiled shape and later proved to be our chosen path for all future sidewall construction skis. The team loved it.
