YES THE GREATS – SNOWBOARD BUYERS’ GUIDE REVIEW
Having covered the great dudes and great babes of history, Yes have decided to focus on snowboarding greats for this year’s graphic. Each length features someone different – Terje, Peter Line etc. Even without those graphics though, this would be a ‘great’ board. Its true twin shape, ‘CamRock’ combo profile and stiff flex make it perfect for advanced freestylers.
YES THE GREATS –WHAT THE BRAND SAYS
From the Great Dudes of History, to the Great Beauties of History, we figured it was about time we got people talking about the Greats that really matter. Re-shaped and revised for 2013, the groundbreaking ‘Asym Twin’ provides a deeper heel sidecut than toe, and rides switch so good you’ll forget which way you stand. So the only question left is… who are your Greats?
