Frank April's thick French-Canadian accent may be hard to understand, but the smooth moves he lays down in the streets with the Yes Public Snowboard are easy to enjoy, even by the untrained eye. A stable flat profile, twin shape, and pop-enhancing poplar stringers help him get it done when he's battling tricks in the city.
The profile is flat to make it more forgiving than a camber board without making it too squirrely, resulting in a board that allows for stable landings and locked-in boardslides. A composite wood core and biax glass give it a buttery feel, while poplar stringers add pop and liveliness. The core is also profiled so it's thicker just outside the binding area to make it flex where you want it and to add strength where you need it.
Flat nose and tail kicks help you balance presses and pop ollies. Blunted tips reduce swing weight and a twin shape allows for easier switch takeoffs and fakie landings. Plus, the extruded base is easy to repair after you ding it up in the streets or the park.
