Product Info

Surface One life Skis 2012: The 3 Stage Rocker on the Surface One Life Skis is what put Surface on the map. They’ve heard it all, from “you must be high” or “your skis are broken”. Surface assures us that there were no mind-altering substances used when conceptualizing the One Life and people that like the One Life typically swear by them. From pow stashes to tree bonks – from wide open bomber lines to tight tree lines, the One Life will have you strung out on having fun!

Pillow Mashin' Powder Porpoises

By 

from Mt. Baker, WA

About Me Professional

Pros

  • Boaty
  • Durable
  • Great Flotation
  • Lightweight
  • Poppy
  • Smooth Ride

Cons

    Best Uses

    • Tight pillow lines

    Comments about Surface One life Skis 2012:

    The One Life served me well for two years ripping Mt. Baker pillows. This is by far the most "boaty" ski in the lineup-perfect for tight high-risk pillow lines. The flex is nice and stiff with plenty of pop, which makes it something I can rely on when going big and fast. They're super playful despite being stiff; pop an ollie in the powder and you'll understand my porpoise metaphor...

    Brotip: if you're 5'5" or taller, get the 189.

      Comments about Surface One life Skis 2012:

      I wasn't sure what to expect these to ski like. The wood Surface uses gives their skis a ton of pop and combined with the extreme rocker profile on the One Lifes make them quick and fun. They ski really easy and are maneuverable when skied flat based but tip the ski over and you feel the full length of the edge making them plenty stable. Its a great width to take everywhere from trees and pow to the junk and crud.

            Perfect big mountain ski to use when the powder is starting to get tracked out and you find yourself in the deep snow just as much as groomers.
