It’s hard to believe that YES. snowboards haven’t been around since the beginning. You can’t find a ‘Top 10’ list these days that doesn’t include at least one of their boards. You can’t even make the old cliché ‘from humble beginnings’ because these guys were veritable superstars before YES. was even a twinkle in their eyes. After the whole UnInc Crew split from ‘The Big B’ Romain de Marchi, Jan Petter Solberg, and David Carrier-Porcheron formed YES. Snowboards and the rest, as they say, is history.
“What exactly happens when three of the best riders in the world get together and start making snowboards?”
For part 1 of our YES. mini-series we spoke to infamous Swiss party animal Romain de Marchi. A man who is as well known for his huge backcountry booter sessions as he is his for his balls to the wall sessions in the bar.
