Took these out for the first time two days ago, and I was amazed! We had received ~4 inches the day before, and the remnants were still left over on the sides, in which the double times float extremely well. The Full Camber provides a lot of pop for side booters and park jumps. The camber helps to lock on rails, and the wider width gives stability. Though they're somewhat fat, I find that they carve like a dream, it's no problem at all to put them on edge. They're extremely stable at speed and the stiff tails help you pull through on sketchy landings. One of my small east coast hill's black diamonds (likely a blue by Western standards) was completely ice despite the snow the day before, and these skis handled it no problem at all. All in all, these skis are great as an everyday, shred everything ski. I mounted them at -4 because I was worried that closer to center would decrease my All-mountain performance too much, and that's my one regret.

Comments about Surface Double Time Skis 2011:

I really like the Surface Double Time skis for all mountain carving. For a midfat ski they hold their edge really well on hardpack and are super stable with no chatter. They're a little too stiff for me and I prefer a ski with rocker but enjoy the Double Time for speedy groomer runs.

        Sometimes think it is better to describe the skier and then you may get a better idea of the ski. I am a good but not great skier that gets up to the hill about 14/15 weekends a year, with the occasional back country trip if I am being led by the right guide. This is a great ski for a mid-level skier that has moments of great skiing. My favorite thing about these skis is that I trust them and know exactly how they will handle each position I am in. Style points as well, I get compliments all the time.

        Comments about Surface Double Time Skis 2011:

        I just decided to switch from snowboarding to skiing this season. It was one of the better decisions I've ever made. These skis are great for hitting groomed runs early in the day and basically anything that's not too wet and lumpy. They're great in powder too, although here in New England I only got to use them once in fresh powder.
        The one thing I didn't consider (since I'm new to skiing) is that they are too flexible for me, aka I should've gotten a stiffer ski to support my weight. Because of that I feel like they don't do well in the wet snow and when it gets lumpy in the afternoon.
        I gave them a 4 mostly because of that, which is really my fault, not the skis.
        They are also very easy to scratch, so be careful about crossing your tips.

        Comments about Surface Double Time Skis 2011:

        I got these a few months ago, and I've gone skiing on the local hill and Steamboat Springs a dozen times or so. They are really nice and floaty in powder. I like doing moguls, and these are really good for that because they're easy to control. They're really stable in all conditions. Also, I've been in less than ideal conditions and I've run over a lot of bare rock, but they seem really scratch-resistant. They are especially hard to control on icy conditions, so I would not recommend them for that. But then again, I can't say any ski is good on ice.

        I couldn't ask for anything better. These skis have it all. Great for powder and steep slopes as well as jumps and tricks. Their light weight makes them easy to handle and a dream to spin. Noticed a chip on mine and a few peeling areas from skis hitting, but nothing too bad. I can't wait to get out and use these again.

          I'm very happy with the 2011 Surface Double Time Skis. This is my first pair of twin tip skis, and they've been great. The top edges are getting a little marked up after a half dozen times out, but I think thats pretty typical of any ski you are learing to ride switch, and through the park. I center mounted the bindings, and feel they're easy to ski on, very responsive, and forgiving.

            I love these skis! They are skinny enought to carve good and work great in park, and wide enough to get some good floatation in the pow on my trips to the actual mountains unlike my ice hill here. They are nice and stiff so you can go super fast too. Also the look amazing! I've gotten several comments on how they look.

              You get this ski out of the box and flex it and the first impression is underwhelming. Very stiff tip, and a pretty soft tail. Why do that? Well Surface nailed it. Soft tails make the ski super forgiving and poppy, while the stiff tips allow for some charging. Super playful, really light, really fun. Skis bumps and chowder real well, super stable on big landings. Hit a ton of rocks, held up like a champ. Me 20+ years skiing, 160lbs, 5'11" on the 180 cm mounted at 1.5cm back of true center. Love these skis.

                Very fun skis. The 17m turn radius makes for some snappy, quick turns. They are also stiffer than you would think, so they really hold an edge. No speed limit for these.

                The stiffness makes them pretty good for busting through crud and holding on hardpack, but not so great for untouched powder. Then again, if you are getting untouched snow for more than a couple hours at a time, you probably already have powder skis. Let's face it, the stuff gets tracked out pretty quick. At least here in CO at the front range resorts.

                *I took one star off for the construction. After 3 days, the topsheets are starting to chip away a little at the tips. To me, that is no big deal. I mainly care about how they ride, and the edges and base are holding up just fine.

                Great bang for the buck. Go for it!

                        Had heard good things about Surface. Based out of UT nice ski's with a good philosophy and design. Made in China but thats the price point your dealing with. Solid construction thus far. I think they are a great all mountain ski for the west. Not extremely wide for a true western powder day, but enough edge for icy days or groomer runs. They ski switch fine and I'm sure they'd be good park ski's but I mounted them 5cm back from boot center for an all mountain setup.
                        Props to EVO for a good price especially with some outlet PX 14 race bindings. Solid combo for cheap.

                        After 30 days of riding park on these, one of my edges is shot and will most likely fall out completely by the end of the season. A fun ski but don't expect it to hold up to any sort of abuse.

                          Took these out for the first time two days ago, and I was amazed! We had received ~4 inches the day before, and the remnants were still left over on the sides, in which the double times float extremely well. The Full Camber provides a lot of pop for side booters and park jumps. The camber helps to lock on rails, and the wider width gives stability. Though they're somewhat fat, I find that they carve like a dream, it's no problem at all to put them on edge. They're extremely stable at speed and the stiff tails help you pull through on sketchy landings. One of my small east coast hill's black diamonds (likely a blue by Western standards) was completely ice despite the snow the day before, and these skis handled it no problem at all. All in all, these skis are great as an everyday, shred everything ski. I mounted them at -4 because I was worried that closer to center would decrease my All-mountain performance too much, and that's my one regret.

                            This is an awesome ski. A true mid fat all mountain guru!
                            Holds a solid edge on the hard pack and is super light and snappy making them a blast in the moguls and glades!
                            Not so much of a crud buster, but the 90mm waist holds well when plowing through those mashes potatoes.
                            A truly solid ride I enjoy all year long no matter the conditions.

                                  Loving them. They are pretty stiff, but very light. REally good park skis and all mountain rides. Super stable and fun carving: even switch they are very easy and intuitive. Ive mounted them t. center so i do have some difficulties floating on powder but still they are sufficient. Def a little bit harder to make butters, but if you can get it, it looks super steeze.

                                    These are great skis that are super stable, enough underfoot to ski some pow, and hold their own in the park as well. Not carvers by any means, but that's not what these skis are bought for. A lot of fun and good forgiveness when you sketch something up.
