Even if its name isn’t likely to earn Salomon the Pulitzer Prize, the Oh Yeah board is quite the jib queen. This freestyle focused female board is more or less a softer version of Salomon’s all-time favourite female board, the Gypsy. So, in case you’re loving the vibe of the Gypsy but longing for a softer flex, the Oh Yeah might be the one to tickle your fancy.

With this camrock (flat in between the feet, camber underneath feet and rocker at tip and tail) profiled board you can be sure not to get bored any time soon. The camber provides stability and pop whilst the rocker makes sure you can jib your way around the mountains and beyond.

“The soft flex and part rocker like shape are ideal for street jibbers”

The strong core is made out of aspen, and the wood strips in the inserts and rail zones make the board even more impact resistant while also making the flex more predictable. With a popster shaped core profile, you’ll be able to get more pop out of the board. Add the soft flex to it and you’ve basically got something that will make the whole ride feel more skateboard-ish.

If you’re a street rat looking for something to hit the streets with, the Salomon Oh Yeah might as well be made for you. The soft flex and part rocker like shape are ideal for street jibbers. Fret not, this board is no one trick pony.

On the Salomon Oh Yeah, you’ll be able to float through powder, jib any rails (whether you’re in the park or on the streets) and still find riding on the groomers very pleasant. It might not be ideal for the hard charging women out there. Go take a look at the Salomon Bellevue if that’s more your thing.

Tester’s Verdict

Stella PenttiWhitelines

“If I’d ridden this snowboard a couple of years ago, I reckon I would really have loved it due to its soft flex and diverse profile. I still enjoyed riding it, but over the last few years I’ve grown to like medium flexed boards over really soft ones.

“I was positively surprised by the stability this board provided”

This board was super easy to handle, and even though it was soft I didn’t feel like I was about to lose control on the more bumpy parts and fall flat down my face like a true Scorpion Queen. I was positively surprised by the stability this board provided.

I reckon beginners could enjoy giving this one a go. It might not be the board you’d hop on if you’ve never stood on a snowboard before, but if you’ve already got some experience in riding and are looking for a soft board to practice your turns on, the Salomon Oh Yeah is definitely worthy of consideration!”
