#1  MONO!!!!  31 Mar '05 at 16:44
I want a monoski, I'm not really sure why but it has a lot to do with me finding them utterly hilarious. Also I think it would be brilliant to try the park with them, the frenchies wouldn't know what hit them!

This desire for a mono has been building until the other day I saw a MSP film from last season, 'focused' I think and Mckonkey backflips on one. I must have one.

So if anyone has a monoski lying around or hears of someone with one I would very much like it.

I'm not sure how much I'll pay for it, not that much because frankly it is only for fun but I'll be very interested so just tell me how much you want and I'll see what I can do (bearing in mind I'm a poverty stricken student with an already loan cripplling addiction to skiing)

Has anyone else embraced the love of mono?

Cheers

James

ok, i'm converted. i want one too. only ever used one once, and i was verreh, verreh drunk. so come on. let's start the revolution. but i only want one if it's in filthy garish colours. lots of neon yellow and pink. obviously layzee gets first dibs, though.

Yeah it's overwhelming, but what else can we do? Get jobs in offices and wake up for the morning commute?

Vive le (la, whatever) revolution!!

I can't take the credit for staring this wonderful movement, my uni actually have a mono team which races at dryslope events, it almost makes me tempted to go near a dryslope again (me and plastic hills have not got on in the past)

As for the filthy garish colours, do they come any other way? and if they do I don't want to hear about it! (actually i do, especially if its cheap )

damn!! I missed Monopalooza!

I'm sensing a serious lack of irony about these people, surely they can't be serious?

have you looked at the mono photos on the swell panik site? Some geezer ripping it up at la grave (but still managing to look slightly camp). there is a good one of someone with a beard in a one-piece catching some seriously camp air

The mono photos are top! come to think of it, I may have seen a monoer (I feel this is the correct term) in La Grave when I was there last week.

That jump is quality, pretty damn gay, I wonder if he landed that?

I still really want a go on one now! cheers Atomic I've asked how much the postage is for that bad boy ! hope it isn't too much

If I get one I can take it to New Zealand and spread the word over the summer, I wonder if they already have them down there?

Mono skis are legendary... if you want to find a true mono skier goto le vache qui ski in Courchevel... those boys are kicking it back to the mono pistes.

Layzeeboy - were you at BUSC the other week? I spied a brit uni Monoskier from the chairlift and made sure I gave him one hell of a cheer. I hope I will be seeing the mono's at the KINGS finals... Good luck in the quest, if I get some money I may also purchase... joe
everything looks better when you're upside down...

Unfortunately my quest for a mono is still continuing, that french one wouldn't tell me how much postage was and ebay hasn't seen one since .

Someone, anyone! HELP! I need a mono, and my loan comes in on monday So what if I might need to eat? novelty snowsports goods are far more important!
