  • Profile: Flat Rocker
  • Shape: True Twin

This all-mountain maverick first saw the cold light of day a year ago and was welcomed with open arms by women all around the globe. It’s easy to see why- it’s a stable yet soft all-rounder that will keep you on your feet even if you’ve had one too many beers at après.

With a flat rocker profile, you’ll find a flat part in between your feet and rocker at both ends of the board. The flat section in between your feet provides better balance and effective edge hold due to your weight being spread more evenly down the board. With rocker at tip and tail, you can expect that catch-free feeling we all dream of.

The Yeasayer is a soft board that flexes the same amount at both ends of the stick, meaning you can brace yourself for a fun ride. The twin shape will come into its own during freestyle sessions, so landing switch is no issue.
The core is made out of both hard and softwood, which makes the board strong yet light. A genuinely fun board to ride, you’ll have the time of your life taking this beauty for a spin on the pistes. Worth saying though that if you’re looking for a board to just out and out charge with, you might want to consider something like the Burton Talent Scout.

This thing’s a versatile vehicle and made for the ladies who like to have fun on the pistes. Girls who prefer to ride hybrids will be pleased to discover that this board also comes with the option of a Flying V profile – pick and choose.

Tester’s Verdict

Joy DutchWhitelines

“I was pleasantly surprised with how well the Yeasayer handled. At slower speeds it held its edges really well through the turns, but at full gas it did start to wash out a little.

“It’s by no means a rip-roaring charger, but it’s a bag full of laughs”

It’s by no means a rip-roaring charger, but it’s a bag full of laughs. The soft flex keeps it playful and you can get your weight over the nose and tail with no effort whatsoever. I found it had a surprising amount of pop for a mostly flat board, but I often find a softer board you can bounce easier to get height.

I just found this board wanted to have fun, it wanted to spin and spray and slide around. It would be an awesome choice for someone looking to progress without it kicking your butt when you wobble or make mistakes.

It’s not the board I’d take for piste pounding or nipple deep powder, but for cruising around and messing around with your crew the Yeasayer is a neat option.”
