Kingswood Skis is a custom indie ski manufacturer based on the South Island of New Zealand, and I caught up with Kingswood founder, Alex Herbert, as the Southern Hemisphere ski season is getting underway. Alex and I talk about ski materials, sidewalls, cosmetics & ski repairs, base material thickness, and Kingswood’s rather unconventional Race Department.
