Definition: Term used to describe the side of the water ski, or the transition area between the side of the ski and the bottom of the ski. The rounder the bevel, the deeper the ski will ride in the water, and the more the ski will roll, making it more difficult to control. A sharper bevel causes the ski to sit higher out of the water. Beginner skis generally have sharp beveled edges and more advanced skis have more rounded bevels, allowing the ski to transition better in the water.
