The Artwork

Jon Q. Wright x J Collab

This winter when you strap this tackle box on your feet you’ll instantly become the master baiter! Each year our fishing themed graphic sells out early, with hardcore anglers asking for more. So we’re “releasing” (pun intended) another fresh one to satisfy all you trophy hunters!

We hit up Jon Q. Wright, the OG boss of fish paintings, to collab on this new Slacker graphic. Jon has had his artwork featured on hundreds of products sold worldwide and is the go-to guy for fish art. Esox is the genus of fish that includes fish like the Northern Pike, and the beautiful Muskie featured on the base. The top of the ski is a collage of just a few of Jon’s giant arsenal of lure paintings, we’re counting on you to take the bait!

I’m building only 200 pair of this new Limited Edition graphic on "The Slacker" ski and hand signing and numbering each pair so you’ll own a fish story no one will ever believe!

Pick up a personal art print from Jon here and have an epic piece to compliment your skis!

The Slacker™

136 - 110 - 128

The mid-width ski in our Explore Collection that’s light for easy touring and floatation in deep powder, while still holding its own long after the last storm.

“The Slacker” is an all-terrain freestyle ski designed with uphill efficiency, while maintaining the solid, intuitive downhill performance J skis are known for. Built with the backcountry in mind, its weight-conscious aspen core construction coupled with maple running over the edges gives it a light yet one-of-a-kind solid feel. There's a subtle tail notch in the tail for reliable skin tail clip retention making touring easy without looking like a skimo nerd. We also offer pre-cut Pomoca skins that fit perfectly and are ready to go touring right out of the box! Unlike others, the Slacker is at home ripping around the resort as it is out of bounds, leaving traditional uphill specific skis behind. Smash, surf, play and have more fun adventuring off the beaten path. Go earn ‘em!

- SKI Magazine

"This is the perfect crossover ski; light, playful and stable. It has great edge-to-edge feel that makes turning feel like buttering bread with a warm knife."

"While lightweight, you won't sacrifice performance coming back down. If your goal is to play on bigger lines and sidecountry powder, The Slacker will help you achieve it."
