FORUM YOUNGBLOOD – SNOWBOARD BUYERS’ GUIDE REVIEW
Named for Forum’s amateur team, the Youngblood has featured heavily in every single one of the brand’s legendary team movies. It’s aimed at up and coming urban and park riders but it’s more than capable of handling the rest of the mountain too. This year’s model is available with either the more forgiving ‘DoubleDog’ combo profile or the more responsive ‘Grand Pops’ camber.
FORUM YOUNGBLOOD –WHAT THE BRAND SAYS
Featuring the talents of famed Toronto artist King Trash, the Youngblood GrandPops is designed to pimp harder than Buck Nasty on Thunderbird. A true twin, bred with borderline illegal game, the NEW GrandPops provides exaggerated ollie power thanks to the expanded flat zones, Swingers Club makes it fast and loose making this the Youngblood’s favorite park board we have created yet
