Default Anyone ride a Yes board?

I was taking a look at their technology called camrocker and it seems like it's the opposite of the gullwing designs that Nitro, burton, and Never summer use. It has camber between the feet and rockers at the tip and tail. I saw hoon had a review of it and he seemed to get Yes's tech confused with burton's flying v, which it is nothing like.

Anyhow, if anyone here has ridden it, how does it ride? I'm curious since it seems a step in a different direction of everyone else.

That camrock looks like some crazy shit... I really want to ride one to see how it feels though.

Looks like it would be incredibly loose feeling and pretty much impossible to catch an edge...

We're going to be seeing some crazy shapes in our snowboards in the near future. I think that's going to be a major factor to companies trying to sell more and more boards each year. Keep the designs interesting to people and keep em rolling off the shelves.

w/o reading hoons review on the Yes board ill at least defend him and say he knows his shit so whatever comps he makes are probably legit. also I do remember him talking about testing the flyv and the yes at pretty much the same time so his writing may just be a comparison of the two not necessarily saying they are similar though. I picked up a Yes at Milosport just to look at it and it felt like a load of bricks. im not sure if its really a heavy board or if my sierrascope is just really light

I agree with this .... but it also kinda sucks in that you used to pretty much be able to pick a company you were stoked on a grab a board from their selection that fit your style. now though its like ok ive never had a signal board but i think they are a pretty cool company and id like to try them but what if im not into their version of alternate camber ... makes it alot more risky to go out on a limb and buy something imo... oh well

My shop at home had a few yes boards and they were heavy as fuck, so your not the only one. I would also be curious to hear how they ride, but at the same time there too many board companies nowadays to keep track of.

Heavy is a turn off for me. I'd still like to ride one. Funky design. I'd like to see some more legit reviews of it.
