Default YES Snowboards

I'm interested in them, but can anyone shed some more light on them? I haven't been able to find too much info. on them, and even their website is a bit vague. Anyone actually own or demo'd one of their boards?

All I know is they offer some camrocker designs now, with camber b/w the bindings and rocker tip/tail, like the Signal Omni. Looks like this yr they also had one model in one size with an assymetric sidecut like the Gnu Park Pickle, and also with some sort of serrated edge design, which I'm guessing is similar to MTX?

I just looked at one in the shop. The serrated edge is like MTX but comes to something more like points rather than waves and they're not as pronounced. It seemed pretty stiff but I guess you'd expect that from an all mtn freestyle deck. It has camber between the feet and a slight rocker outside the binders but not crazy rocker like some boards.

my local shop stocked them this season, they sold out fast.
I know the owners of Yes boards are a few ex-burton riders that went out and started their own thing

The serrated edge is just that, using the serration like a knife to saw into ice better. It's designed in a manner that it wouldn't slow you down though, just help you carve through icy conditions. I would also like to read some more reviews on it.

Anyhow, the Rossignol Angus has a similar design. K2 seems to be going sort of in the direction next year, with the rockers of varying thicknesses as the tip and tail, except that they are making their boards flat between the bindings instead of cambered.

I find it so odd that companies are moving rocker away from the center of the board, and putting it at tip and tail though. I'm surprised someone isn't calling it duel rocker or something like that.

It's pretty much the Un-Inc guys... DCP, Romain De Marchi and JP Solberg and they also signed Tadashi Fuse. I haven't been on one yet as they don't come in a size for me this year. That said the reviews are pretty solid.

I posted a thread just like this half a month ago. But much much less responses. LOL. BurtonAvenger tested one, but didn't really care to share much detail.



So I'm here now.. waiting for more replies

Just checked out Nidecker's site and I do see the CamRock tech, but not sure if anything else is relevant. The YES website is annoying with almost no real tech info, much like Lib/Gnu's sites. Terrible pics too...
