Introducing Finbar Doig
With the Aisling strapped to his feet Finbar is oft seen flying through the air in Scotland and abroad.
I first saw Finbar Doig's great and often hilarious videos (@f_dawwggg) on Instagram last year and was highly entertained. After a mutual friend Jamie looked at the Aisling ski I had designed he said 'thats the ski for F Dawg!'

After meeting up and going for a bike ride I thought it would be great to invite him on the team and actually get him round to make his own skis. We spent a weekend making a maple Aisling which he then mountain some nice Look Pivots to up in Inverness.
Finbar has taken the Aislings to Chamonix this year and his dad Graham took some excellent photos.
He recently won the Lawers of Gravity event at Ben Lawers range. This was quite poignant as its kind of the local ski touring hill to the workshop and can be considered as the birthplace of Scottish skiing. Photographer Ed Smith caught an amazing photo.
Finbar just competed in the Corrie challenge at Aonach Mor. In his practice run he back flipped into Summit Gully regardless of the hard pack. The moment was captured by Brodie Hood who was sitting just under the lip of the feature.
