Freestyle skis are becoming more and more specialized as technology not only improves power and thrust, but also helps cut weight, improve response and ridability. New hull and deck materials, billet engine and pump components and ergonomics have evolved the sport of freestyle to new heights, and as always, competition births ingenuity.
Philip Clemmons and wife, Penny are the owners of P&P Performance in Richmond, Virginia. Recently, Philip went to the intarwebs to show off his latest creation, a 2014 XScream DVX. Powered by a TPE 1105, with MSD total loss ignition, a Powerfaxtor pipe, and a pair of Full Spec 49 carbs. Out back includes a 155mm billet pump, XS trim, and OEM mounts/cables.
Built and tuned through P&P Performance, Philip and Penny attacked the tray. Philip admitted to The Watercraft Journal, “My wife is the main turfer,” but it didn’t stop the two from making the footholds a unique creation. “The holds have been tweaked a few times for best fit,” Philip admitted.
What you see here is some serious working of some black diamond Hydro-Turf traction matting. In one pass, some red was thrown in to break up the monochrome monotony, but you can see how the pointed holds gave way to fully engulfing slip-in boots. In either configuration, both Philip and any talented freestylist will enjoy a customized tray to be envious of.
