  1. Jeff is awesome, and my custom Ahmeek 115’s are being produced right now…

    I did a lot of research on custom skis before going with shaggy’s.. But it’s the company itself.. And the people who own /run it.. That put them on my #1. Integrity, commitment to things bigger than skis, and just darn nice people.. Combined with an excellent product.

    I forsee a future of an entire quiver of shaggy’s customs…

    Check them out everyone!!
