YES boards. optimistic vs the dudes. all mountain, butters, trees
I just moved to US and I''m thinking of winter already.
I''m really interested in YES boards, I saw some reviews and they seem to ride quite good for a low price (that''s what I''m looking for).
I weight about 160-165lbs and I''m thinking of getting an Optimistic or The Dudes board (not sure what size though, 156? 154? 159?)
Mostly I do all mountain, however from time to time I like to go trees, powder and do some butters too. Right now I''m leaning towards dudes as it''s more flexy (butters...) nevertheless optimistic get really good reviews.
So which one to choose? What lenght?
Thanks in advance.
and here is the link to both:

In my experience the Optimistic was the only YES built well. The Dudes was awkward, average edgehold even with the serrated edge, and the pop had such a specific spot I think I hit it twice in 3 runs.
If you're looking for bang for $$ do everything boards, try the Signal Omni, Flow Drifter, Nitro Rook, Forum Destroyer Doubledog (should be $400), or a K2 Happy Hour.
All around a 155-156ish kinda size.
That thing I do to escape the world and have fun with my friend
Also, buy my things?
