gilbertresselFr, 2 years ago the only reason I knew about surface was because Banks Gilberti was riding em in the Days of My Youth resort segment but now they're all over the gram.
Pretty big in Europe too.
270on420outSurface only sucks if you got blanks. All of their other skis seem to perform well.
Young_pattyI mean considering they didn’t really exist 2-3 seasons ago they really have nowhere to go but up lol. I skied the odyssey’s and snapped one about halfway through the season so the quality isn’t great but they were piss cheap so I wasn’t too heated.
LonelySurface has been around since 04....
TRVP_ANGELthe outsiders on the come up. every comp rider will be ridin em in a few years
Young_pattyYou’re correct, but when I called them to order skis in the 2016/17 season (had to grab some cheap sticks after revision robbed me) they said they had been chilling on the down low to restructure the company and essentially save themselves from going under. Like they had no team, had been in-active for months and had been selling the exact same skis for a couple years straight.
now they’re back with a fresh team and some new skis and are once again an active ski company. So quite literally on the up! Nowhere else to go from there really
EvanMeyerThey took one maybe two years to restructure the brand, idk how old you are but surface was pretty damn popular for a few years 2009-13 their team was relatively stacked. probably saw just as many kids on surfaces at the hill like you see on ON3Ps nowadays.
SoggyOatmeal420thinking of getting the give’rs they seem kinda like a hybrid between the reckoner 102 and the line blend, plus the price is really good
BigPurpleSkiSuitWasn't Banks on their sticks for awhile?
FUUUCKI think they need to go back to the old "life" branding, bring back the LAB001 in a longer length, and keep selling there skis for affordable prices. The thing that blows my mind about surface is that the 3 stage rocker doesn't make a ton of sense on paper, but rides so so well on snow. The New Life was the best backcountry freestyle ski I've ever tried, it just makes everything so easy.
ski_salmon69Looks like they’ve got a few new ones in the works. The topsheets are dope as usual too
