All snowboards are fun in powder, but this one smokes the competition.
What happens when you coop up a bunch of the world's best snowboarders in a cabin on down days with a lot of time and a lot of ... um, 'inspiration?' You get the powder surfing machine that is the Yes 420 Snowboard. Yes twisted up this fatty with a super-wide waist and a long, rockered nose so that you stay on top of the deepest of the deep with ease.
Float in powder is all about weight distribution, so instead of making an extra-long board to keep you up, the guys at Yes decided to actually shorten the length and make the waist wider instead. The result is a highly maneuverable board that stays on top of deep snow with minimal effort and rides really fast and loose. A flat profile with a longer nose and rockered tip and tail provides a floaty, yet extremely stable ride that still holds its own on hardpack. The core features blends the light weight and liveliness of poplar with the pop and strength of Paulownia wood. Triax glass keeps it responsive, and the sintered base holds wax well to keep you cruising through flat spots.

Yes 420 Review Japan
I tested out the Yes 420 a few weeks ago in Japan and the board went absolutely amazing, everything it is described to be is correct. I have ridden a Gentem Stick Giant Mantaray, Prior 176 Powstick, Burton Fish, Osin 4807 and the Yes 420 is by far the most enjoyable powder/snowboard I have ever ridden in my 30 years of riding and my 10 season in Japan. It is by far the best tree board and open bowl board I have ever ridden and it is the best value powder board on the market.
