Tough, fast, and versatile but just as ready for pow as you.
- Freeski Rocker Technology (early rise tip and tail) allows switch landings and ultimate flotation in deep snow while the camber underfoot grips groomed or variable snow
- Sandwich sidewall construction yields great rebound and a uniform, medium flex that doesn’t feel like a wet noodle underfoot
- The milled wood core features two carbon fiber I-Beams that run the length of the ski to provide a solid and smooth ride over less-than-perfect snow
- Early rise tip also prevents hooking and grabbing while skiing crud and chopped snow
- The Powder Hull technology in the tip slices through the fluff like a boat's hull, so you can slice through it during speedy descents into the white room
- Traditional sidecut and medium turn radius suits aggressive skiers that weave in and out of the trees hunting for powder when it’s not snowing

These skis are great in a variety of conditions; they can rip down groomers, cut through crud, or float in powder. The hull is a really cool feature in that it makes the skis really crave a turn, so if you're an aggressive skier, or you want skis that will help you be a more aggressive skier, these are for you, and you want a ski that you can take out in any conditions, these bad boys are highly recommended.
These skis are really great in a wide variety of conditions and one of the best turning skis available. I'm a fairly aggressive, fairly advanced skier that loves fresh powder in the trees so needed a shorter turning radius. Well there aren't many skis out there with a 21 m TR in 186 length. Sure there's better powder planks and stiffer sticks but not all rounders than these. Versatile, fun, fast, stable and they're great quality!
Super Capable, Excellent Ride
These were the first Powder-Hulled Skis I had ever ridden, Gotta say I liked them, I feel the the powder hull helps promote nice lines. Admittedly, I am a powder noob, and my style is a bit "Stompy & Smeary" this may have to do with my skis (Surface Live Life 191) so initially I wasn't feeling the ski. A Few runs later I became accustomed to the Watea Way, A little more Thai-Chi than my normal Kung-Fu. Smooth Turn initiation, Solid Edge Grip, Tight turning radius all in all these skis made me feel like a better skier. I Rode the 186's I am 6'3" 255 . A solid performer for almost any day on the mountain
