Shot Ski for Potter's By The Sea
Vintage 1965 Cypress Gardens "El Diablo" grooved slalom. I bought this ski brand new in 1965 at Midsouth Sporting Goods in Greenwood Mississippi for $75.00. I have had it ever since, and have skied hundreds of miles on it since. It has lived with me in Mississippi, Florida, Georgia, and Texas. It's new home will be at Potter's By The Sea on Anegada. A fitting place for it to wind up.

After an hour and a half of sanding, the ski is stripped and ready for initial prep work. To make it through 47 years of use, it has had the bindings replaced on it many times, leaving lots of screw holes to fill.
