The Yes FunInc is the kind of board you look back and wish you had learned to ride on; gone are the days of kids having to ride an aggressive full camber 10cm too long for them because it was the only thing available. The head honchos at YES decided that they didn’t want groms to have to be stuck riding the boring kiddies decks or wildly oversized adult boards – enter the FunInc.

“Early rise in the nose and tail keeps it feeling catch free, so your little ripper is able to ride confidently without fearing the dreaded scorpion”

Built to be able to destroy the whole mountain, the FunInc is designed with progression and play in mind. A flat base adds stability and security when Junior’s ripping up the piste and will give a helping hand when they’re going to 50/50 that box. An extruded base isn’t the fastest on the market, but it’ll certainly be able to withstand the beating they’ll no doubt put it through.

Early rise in the nose and tail keeps it feeling catch-free, so your little ripper is able to ride confidently without fearing the dreaded scorpion. The rocker also comes into play when you’re dipping into the deeper snow, keeping the nose up to avoid sinking.

The full poplar core is dependable and durable, it’ll perform exactly how it’s supposed to – no hidden tricks, no faff, no fuss. Biax glass keeps it a bit more flexible, making it easier to control. The overall flex is softer so the little dudes can press and play around just like the pros. If you’re looking for a more powder focused option, check out the YES PowInc here…

Tester’s Verdict

Whitelines Grom Team

*As the board remains unchanged, we’ve used our 2018/19 Grom Team Verdict*

Ella

“I really liked this board; it was stiffer than my normal board, but it turned really well, I could carve really hard and it felt strong and safe when I was going straight. I used it in slush and it would just bash straight through the lumps and bumps.”

Dad’s Comments

“I was a little concerned that this board would be too long and heavy for the kids, but YES seem to have struck a really good balance with the flex pattern on the kids boards because both the FunInc and the PowInc have worked really well. Ella drives through turns, and this really complimented her style.”
