UPDATE: Check out our review of the 2018/2019 YES 420 PowderHull here
The regular YES 420 is exceedingly well-suited to the deep stuff already, with a tapered shape and wide waist that both compensate for the shorter length. That being said, its younger brother the YES 420 PowderHull is on a level all of its own. With its completely overhauled base, it’s hard to picture a more pow-ready board than this one.
“Air is channeled underneath the front of your board as you ride it, lifting it up”
At both the nose and the tail (but mostly at the nose), the YES 420 PowderHull has a concave cut-out in the base. Air is channeled underneath the front of your board as you ride it, lifting it up. The section at the back of the board allows your tail to sink further into the powder, achieving ideal board position with considerably less effort from the rider. The rest of the board is flat, which means that those sections are fairly anonymous when you’re in anything but deep powder.
