This ski is an absolute nightmare. It rides poorly, and breaks incredibly quickly. Surface has provided terrible customer service.Surface claims there is no manufacturer defect and the ski is not covered by warranty because the damage appears to be from an impact. This being said the edge damage is under the heel of my boot (not where you do rails), and there is no damage to the side wall. They have refused any insight on how to fix the ski, but have offered a crash replacement for $125, the skis are not worth a tenth of that price. Do not get Surface No Time's!
These skis performed poorly. They do not carve well, they force you to ski with poor form in order to account for the early rise tails. They ski better switch than forward, but regardless they can not hold a turn with any confidence.
I have the skullcandy collaboration edition, the ski looks phenomenal. However the side wall looks cheaply constructed.
These skis are the worst value possible. I thought I had lucked out and got a solid micro-brand ski for a steal, I was very wrong. The skis are absolute garbage, likely even a hazard to your safety.
I'm 5'11 and got the 182cm size, perfect height for me. However compared to 183cm volkl gotamas, the No Time's are longer, but only by about a cm.
The ski is fairly stiff, except for the early rise tail which flops around and catches snow, forcing you to ride very far back on the skis.
These skis are built to ride them once then throw them out. Second day riding on them I went off a jump, my ski pre-released resulting in my edge snapping and the base tearing. The top sheet however seems reasonably durable, unfortunately that doesn't matter at all when the edge breaks after 8 hours on the ski
BUY THEM! But expect the edges to crack if you jib on them.
Soo much FUN!
The look of surface skis cannot be beaten. They felt a lot of fun. The early rise may be progressive technology, but i like it a lot.
Retail might be a bit steep, but compared to what you can get for that money in another ski, i'd say the value is high.
Fit is super nice. i'm 5'11" and 182s are perfect.
Them skis have a funky early rise thing going on. Now when i use the word funky here i mean it is loish; super fun. They are pretty stiff compared to a noodlier ski like invaders, which is good for skiing and jumping, but still super fun to jib on.
Not so much. i think i had 7 cracked edges after 7 days on them. I do slid lots and lots of metal, and the edges are the only problem so far and aside from being cracked they have not pulled out or anything at this point.
