Surface Drifter Skis 2012

Surface Drifter Skis 2012: Blake Nyman has been at Surface from the get go and has experienced all aspects of the company from day 1. He’s worked his way up through the ranks and is now a member of the much respected Nimbus Independent crew. Blake can be found skiing tricky lines around Utah one weekend and hitting nasty Mt. Hood Step downs on Monday morning. And his weapon of choice? The Surface Drifer Skis. Lightweight, yet wide enough for pow days, the Drifter is a great all-around ski. Early Rise rocker not only helps the ski float in the soft stuff but reduces tip/tail snag when spinning off kickers.
Shape
Early Rise Hybrid technology makes for an extremely smooth turn initiation and exit, along with keeping the tip of those boards on top of the deepest snow. The Hybrid Camber underfoot allows for that edge hold when snow tends to firm up or when terrain gets steeper and you need that extra bite.

Specs

  • Terrain: Powder
    Powder
    These skis are for the deep days. If you like to find powder stashes at your local resort, go on backcountry missions for the freshest of fresh or heli ski trips to BC, powder skis are what you need to stay afloat. Skis in the powder category are wide and most often have some form of rocker or early rise plus a relatively soft flex. Many powder skis today are versatile enough to handle mixed conditions and harder snow.
  • Ability Level: Advanced-Expert
    Advanced-Expert
    Whether you charge the steepest lines, carve with race-like precision, hit the biggest jumps or halfpipes; advanced to expert level skis/snowboards are for the more aggressive rider. You will often find the addition of layers of metal, carbon, bamboo, or other stringers in these. These features work to make a stiffer ski/snowboard with more power and rebound.
  • Rocker Type: Rocker/Camber/Rocker
    Rocker/Camber/Rocker
    Rocker/Camber/Rocker skis have the playfulness and float of a rockered ski as will as the added edge hold of a cambered ski. The contact points on skis with this profile are closer towards the middle of the ski than a fully cambered ski, but still not underfoot. The cambered midsection provides a longer effective edge on hardpack, increasing edge hold and stability, while the rockered tip and tail provide floatation in deeper snow and allow the ski to initiate and release from turns easier.
  • Turning Radius: 22.0m @ 181cm // 26.2m @ 191cm
  • Core/Laminates: Wood
  • Tail Type: Full Twin Tip
    Full Twin Tip
    Desinged to allow you to ski backwards, full twin tips are found primarily on park & pipe skis and freestyle powder skis. More and more, we are seeing twin tips on all-mountain skis of all abilities, as it makes it a little easier to get around, and for the most part does not inhibit forward skiing.
