There's no need for the power of positive thinking when you have the Yes. The Optimistic Snowboard strapped to your feet—it’s already all good. You’ve got a perfect day ahead of you thanks to this board’s CamRock profile, which features camber between the bindings for pop and high-speed control, and rocker at the tip and tail for float in the pow and jib-ability everywhere else. Carbon Stringers add extra zing in the park, and the sintered 8000 base provides a wicked fast, durable surface for rocketing over the snow. With Yes. performance at your disposal, you’ve got the board part of the equation dialed—now you just need to start thinking snow, foot upon foot of it.

how would my large forum shaka binding fit...
how would my large forum shaka binding fit on the 162 optomistic? or ANY size of yes board,any model of yes board for that matter,? these boards are soooooooooo killer!!!! i so want to fit one so bad lol
It might be a little too narrow bro. If you size ur bindings dwn to the smallest setting, then you might be able to fit. But I ride a wide deck(waist width of 260), with size 12's and XL binders. How big are ur feet? If you are an 11 or smaller, then you might be able to fit on one. But as I said dwn below to COFFEE's question, you will need a deck with a waist width of atlease 255 for XL binders. 4mm doesnt seem like much, but that might be the difference between toe drag and not. Hope this helps
Tried in Whistler last March. Lucky to get my hands on one for a day to try. I rode the 159, which is probably the length I'll buy this year. I'm about 185 lb, and size 10 boots. Anyway, in pow it absolutely ruled, floated super easily and was surf slashy good times. On the hardpack it railed super hard, but released easily when you wanted it to. Wicked board and by far the best thing I can think of for the price.
This board is so dope. But I my size 12...
This board is so dope. But I my size 12 hobbit feet would be too big for this board. What do you think?
Yeah man you will have toe drag for sure. I have size 12's too and I ride a Rome Machine 154W, with a waist width of about 258. Its hard for us bigger footed roders to ride anything under a 254 waist. So look for a board either in mid-wide to wide with a waist width of 255(25.5cm) or greater. Hope this helps bro
