I love this board so much. First impression riding it: it felt a little stiff and a little heavier than my last board (2012 Rossi Jibsaw 155). After riding for a while this season I am in love with this thing. The asymmetrical shape of the board feels so nice off booters and in pow. If pow and jumps are your thing this board is for you!! (not the best jibbing board out there)
This board is tons of fun. Very snappy, great edge hold and stability. the edges arent too strong, i broke them in two different spots in under 40 days of riding. The different side cuts do make a difference when landing and carving, just makes it a bit easier. very fast, consistent and great on jumps. A little too stiff for my liking but definitely a true all mountain freestyle deck.
Hey, Is there any chance of getting this...
Hey, Is there any chance of getting this board in stock in 156 any time soon?
I have been riding all-mountain, big-mountain, and side-country snowboarding for around 10 years now. I recently switched to the YES Greats shortly following my first experience with riding a YES snowboard (the BigCity). First let me say this: I have never in my life riddin a better brand of board than YES. (ive tried LibTech, Burton, NeverSummer, Capita, Rome, DC, K2, Rossignol, Lamar, and quite a few others) In terms of construction, durability, and all around ride-ability, YES snowboards is like going from standing on a 6 inch 6 foot plank to riding a futuristic hoverboard. Nuff Said.

GREATS TECH AND SPECS: The asymmetrical sidecut is life changing. You go from having to put a good steady weight on your back edge to get it to engage (on a normal board). To only minor lean and body position adjustments to engage the back edge (on the greats). This gives you an enormous boost of maneuverability and quite a bit of extra power on turns, carves, and pops. The Ultimate Grip serrated edge will grab onto ANYTHING including pure ice. The camrock on this board is perfected to the point where the board has enormous amount of pop on demand while still being playfull and flexible enough to butter and jib. The flex on the greats leans slightly toward the medium-stiff range. The overall tip to tail flex is medium stiff which gives control and stability at speed, enormous pop, and a nice lively riding feel. The stiffness tapers off toward the tip and tail to allow for nice smooth butters, wicked manuals,and incredible float in pow. The board is also quite flexible toe to heel which makes carving and highs peed maneuvers effortless. The base is extremely durable so you can rest assured those little sharks wont bite you. The base is also very very fast and holds wax well.
OVERALL PERFORMANCE: I have been riding the 58 in Park City, UT for most of the season. We have seen a wide range of conditions from ice sheets to slushy wet snow to fresh pow and everywhere in between. This board HANDLES IT ALL with ease and confidence. The serrated edges give you an exceptional hold on iced out snow and straight ice sheets. In terms of actually snow ride-ability the Greats excels in all types of snow. On old crusty snow the Greats will cut in and find the lighter snow underneath for you to grab on to which kills a lot of quiver while high speed charging. In the deeps the Greats turns into a crazy hoverboard with a nice surfy feel. This board floats effortlessly on top of the deep pow and leaves you with a sense of flying while your spraying pow at your buddies stuck in the deeps with their sub-par snowboards. The asymetrical sidecut pulls through (as always) in the pow to make your turns tight and fast when your feeling energetic and yet smooth and surfy when your feeling a bit lazy. In overall snow performance the greats kills in all conditions.
My Bottom Line: Having your cake and eating it too. All of it.
