A super-fun freestyle ride, with cash left over for your pass fund.
The good folks at Yes Snowboards don't believe in discrimination. They think snowboarding should be fun and affordable for everybody—even people with bigger-than-normal feet. And thus, the Basic Wide Snowboard was born. With a moderate twin flex, poppy-yet-playful CamRock profile, and high-quality construction, the Basic basically lays waste to parks, pow runs, and everything in-between.
They switched things up this year by building the tail in a way so that it has less volume that the nose while still maintaining a twin shape. The result is a board that rides like a twin on hardpack, but floats like a directional in powder. Poplar in the core makes it lightweight and lively, while beechwood Impact Blocks increase strength and durability. The twin shape makes riding switch and landing fakie easier, and a radial sidecut allows for smooth turn initiation. Biax glass gives the board a buttery feel for jibbing and surfing through powder, and the extruded base is easy to repair after you ding it up in the park.
