Part of Radar's Ben Vee series the 2020 Katana Waterski has revolutionized open water skiing. Extra width under foot allows the ski to pop out of the water easily. Combined width with flat channel and grip rails, allows the ski more surface area to perform at an advanced level. The Katana is great for open water skiing and it's low drag and easy turning allows the user to rip between 24-32 MPH. Best open water ski you can get. Period.
