Jes-Z Hey guys, I got back from my trip on Sunday.

I have to say that the Yes Big City was amazing. It had the perfect amount of flex and I centered the stance. I did ride some powder with it but I should've set the stance back further, but I had a great time either way. I have to say the board is really fast. Even faster than I thought. It was great fun and I love it. So happy with my purchase.

lkblack So following on from Jenny Jones winning bronze in slopestyle at Sochi, a UK vendor offered a celebratory 30% discount on all snowboards they had in stock. They had a new Yes Big City 158 which was already discounted, so I could not resist the bargain price...

Reading these posts now, I'm wondering if it will be too long for me? I'm 5'11" and tip the scales at around 160lbs - I already have a NS Proto CT in 154, which I love (after detuning tip and tail), however I am not as comfortable on it at speed as I was on my old Salomon Official 158.

My plan is to keep the Yes Big City in the quiver for fresh and charging days, then use the Proto for more playing around and park days. Does the Yes Big City in 158 fit the bill here? I am asking as I still have time to send it back! Any advice gratefully received...unfortunately I won't be able to try out the Yes board till March, when it will be too late to return it

A PYL is a big mountain board. Are you sure that's what you want? A Cobra would be a better choice, or maybe a Heritage if you like the NS line.

If you want Yes, and ASYM could be great.

Jes-Z Got the board in the mail today. I'd say it about 98% brand spanking new. Lol.

There was a small scuff/scratch on the tail about 2 inches long and about 2mm wide. So the top deck wasn't perfect. Lol.

The bottom had a few scuffs but I'm not worried. The wax will cover them.

Overall, I think the deal with The Clymb was too good to pass up.

The board is slightly more flexible than my Rome Anthem which is exactly what I wanted. Can't wait to try it out.



I also started to do some Indo Board excersizes to improve my ankle stability and endurance. Here's a video of me doing it.

Good choice. I think you'll love it.

True. On their greats true twin asym series they clearly mark the heelside so no matter if you are goofy or not.

neachdainn Way poppier than my buddies NS legacy, my ultralight (obviously), and my old Rossi one magtek... That's about all I can compare it to.

tonicusa How's the pop in it. The 2012 is supposed to be softer and less camber than 2013.

neachdainn I picked up '12 great dudes off the clymb, was in great shape. Only thing I could see was a light scuff on the top sheet.

Rides a-may-zing! (Paired with NOW IPOs).

From what I read on the clymb, there are final sales. No returns.

Now I'm really worried! Lol
