When the Salomon crew headed to Hawaii last November to shoot footage of them skiing on big waves on Maui's North Shore, they enlisted the help of Jason Starr, a former freestyle skier and Santa Cruz surfer who's working on a patent for his Starr Surf Skis, split paddleboard skis that glide Nordic-style on flat water and carve on big waves. "The first time I surfed on them, it felt like snowboarding," says Starr. "All I could think about is that getting skiers into big waves could open a new world of skiable terrain." Turns out, he's right. Check out the footage.
