Axiski is a multi-terrain, multi-position board made with super-smooth plastic that glides through gentle slopes and inclines with minimal effort. You don’t need to run to gain momentum.
The first prototype consisted of two pieces of laminate flooring stitched together in Dad’s makeshift attempt to entertain his two daughters. Unlike the sleds other kids brought out that snow day, Maker Darren Mather’s sled could carry all three of them and sail smoothly even as the snow melted.
After hitting the drawing board, he came up with a cleaner (non-laminate-flooring) version. With foot grips to give you added traction while standing and snowboard-like curves on the edges to help with steering and direction, Axiski is proof that snow days are the perfect idea incubators.
