The water ski were manufactured on an art workshop in June 2014 in a shipyard at the Baltic Sea in Germany.

After an introduction to the historical boat building, by the shipyard owner Kirsten Dubs, Veit Penzenstadler and I thought of alternative products which could be developed with the traditional production processes. The introduction to the steam bending process, which is normally used to bend planks for a boat, inspired us to manufacture traditional water ski made out of oak wood.
