Does a snowboard crashing into a slushy pond sound different than a pair of skis? How does the sound differ above and under the water?

Our report is far from scientific, but this year KTOO used a hydrophone to record the sounds of last weekend’s Eaglecrest Slush Cup. Our thanks to Joseph Reeves for the loan of the special underwater microphone.
