At least I think I can.
Yes. pays tribute to the movers and shakers that made a difference, and that weren’t afraid to stand up and say, “Yes” when destiny called, with its the Dudes Snowboard. Six righteous dudes on the Yes. top-of-the-line board invite you on excellent adventures all over the mountain. Featuring the Nidekker CamRock profile, which combines camber between the bindings with and rocker at the tip and tail for maximum versatility, the Dudes never met a cliff or kicker it didn’t like. Ingredients for an epic day includes The Dudes’ asymmetrical sidecuts, triaxial glass with carbon reinforcement and a wicked fast 8800 sintered base, plus extra inspiration whenever you look down at your feet before you huck off a cliff screaming “Yes I can!”

I ride a DC PBJ (when it was first released) and its cambered and has great pop. Does this board have good pop? LIke when you preload to ollie something it doesnt end up being you jumping with all your might with a weight strapped to your feet? Thanks.
I had a Nitro Haze last year and it well-known for its poppy-ness. This board is heavier than the Haze but I can ollie a lot higher with it. i wanna say it has something to do with the camber or perhaps its just my ollie abilities increasing as each season progresses. Good pop, yes.

ok this board looks pretty sick but i have a couple of questions:
1) can it handle street and jibbing?
2)i weight about 160 lb and about 6 ft would the 154 be to small (I ride as much backcountry as i can, dont get passed much on the groomers, and hit the park a lot (mostly jib), pow is not much of an issue considering that i live on the east coast)?
I know that I really should be riding two differnet boards but Im looking if i can get the best of both worlds with the dudes...
It's not going to be the best jib board, but it will handle east coast hardpacked. I would recommend the 154 or 156 for your size and needs
Yes. it's grrrrrrrreat!
After countless hours of searching the web for a new board, I couldn't be happier with my decision to go with this brand. Although I have to admit, I had never heard of Yes. before. I knew only through friends that they were this legit new company that was making waves with their products.
Prior to this board, I came from riding a 6 year old very basic forum board, regular camber and no hi-tech fancy stuff at all. I knew I wanted to venture into the rocker technology but was afraid that the difference might be too substantial, perhaps dislike the way it would ride. You could say I made the plunge, halfway. The camrock technology gave me a sense of comfort, hanging on to what I knew but adding some new tech to it.
I was completely blown away after riding it only ONE time. The response is still there from the camber BUT one major difference, it is so much more forgiving than my conventional cambered board. Not once did I clip from over-rotating my spins and it floats so nicely on powder.
Just to sum it up - this board is perfect in every way. I love it! Get one, borrow one, or demo one...I don't care, just try it for yourself and be the judge.

What about quality of this boards. I heard that lot of customers return their
snowboards? (almost 10%) I'm interested in Dudes or Typo, but afraid to buy it. Any opinions or sugestions?
these are too big and wide for me
but i saw them in my snowboard shop. maybe someday i'll grow and hopefully gain some weight and then i'll be able to experience cool boards like this! for now the graphics just give me warm feelings inside my tummy. yeah!
Can't wait to shred with this board!! just...
Can't wait to shred with this board!! just wondering what length i should get?? i weigh 75kg's and size 10 boot. was thinking a 156?? ... riding pow in japan over christmas! yew
supp bro,, so first off,, 75kg is around 165lbs and a size 10 boot.. i think that you should be good with getting a 156 for some pow action in japan,, Get IT,, shredd it,, take some pix,, and post it up!!..//
I was completely shocked after riding this board. I wasn't expecting much and was completely blown away with how fun it was.
I was a bit worried about the ASYM sidecut on the board, as it's been a long time since I've rode anything that has had that kind of sidecut. But it's solid, you can lay it down and leave trenches, riding switch is a piece of cake & holds on when the snow is firm or icy.
I've been on just about all of the hybrid rockers out there and the CamRock is great. Just a slight hint of reverse camber in the middle to camber under foot and out. The reverse camber isn't as dramatic as what some other companies are doing, so you don't get that "teeter totter" feeling on it when your weight isn't perfectly centered on the board and it was completely stable pointing it down some of the icy steeps at Snowbasin. You also don't get that rocker washout when you are dropping something or landing a jump if your weight is too far back.
I managed to find some wind blown powder just off of the John Paul lift at Snowbasin and it was a blast to cruise right through it. The shape of the nose and tail float right through it and the CamRock is just enough to keep those tips up.
I ride a size 10 boot and had zero issues at all with any toe drag or the Union Contact Pro bindings I used on it fitting. But I wouldn't suggest trying to fit an 11 on it as you might encounter some toe drag unless you have a boot with a reduced footprint.
If you're looking for an all-mountain deck that will handle anything you want to throw at it while still being fun when you want to dork around, this is a deck that should be on your short list.
