The Watea shines when jackets go a-flapping—stable both within the turn and during go-for-broke straightlines. It tracks through crud, regardless of speed.

Props

When pinned, it cranks down the fall line. Slow it down, and the Watea still wants to turn.

Gripes

A little slow to turn in closetlike spaces.

Tester's Take

"Pack up this ski and go rip AK faces." —Dan Withey
