That review below was marked as dumb for good reason. Here's a real review.
My info: 6'4", 200 lbs. 10 years riding.
Got this board in a 159, my ride-everywhere size.
The Yes Basic is a price-point park or all-mountain twin that rips. Exactly as the name of the board says, this thing is basic - no fancy shape, no crazy construction materials, a little bit on the heavier side - but if you're looking for a board on the cheap, the Basic delivers.
Coming from a Capita FK board earlier this season, I find this thing to be much poppier while maintaining that catch-free feeling with the rocker in the tips. The rockered tips also make this thing a cinch to butter around and get goofy on, albeit it's no noodle.
Took this thing backcountry on the steeps in a powdery day as well, and it performed pretty well. Yeah, you still get that leg burn, but it's a whole lot better than a full-camber board.
Only complaints that I have with it are that it's a wee bit heavy, but for a <$400 board, it's to be expected a bit. Also, the top sheet seems to scuff pretty easily, but if you're a real rider this is something easily overlooked.
TLDR; Good price-point twin; RIDE IT, FOO!
