This board is awesome. I had been wanting a hybrid camber board for a while, having only owned camber boards, and disliking how my friends Ride Machete felt. After talking to a couple of people and reading reviews, I decided to cop a Yes Great Beauties, and I couldn't be happier.
First thing you notice is how the board looks when you take it out of the packaging. Great artwork along with a terrific looking shape. Its one of the sexiest looking boards I've ever seen, and it puts a smile on your face looking down at it on the lifts.
Once you get it on the mountain, its just a sick sick ride. Its super fast, and has a very durable base. I hit more than a few rocks during these early season conditions but the base only got some super shallow scratches. Scratches so shallow, I could only see them, but not feel them with my finger. Next up is the asym sidecut, which makes heelside a breeze. Very handy when riding switch since I've always been alot weaker during heelside switch turns. Holds an edge extremely well, griping on icy patches that other boards have slipped out on me on. Very fun on groomers. I've only been able to hit some small pow stashes, but damn this is soooooo much better than my camber boards. Can't wait to take it out on a legit pow day.
Camrock, plainly put, is fucking awesome. It gives you the stability of a cambered board, without feeling sketchy like a rockered board. Plus, it makes butters hella easy as well. Now, I haven't tried other hybrid camber boards, but I have a hard time imagining that they would be better than camrock for someone who likes the stability of camber.
If your thinking of copping this board, I can only say Yes. Now Board.
