For the last couple of years, YES co-founders Romain de Marchi, JP Solberg and DCP have paid tribute to their UnInc super-team heyday with the graphic of this board. Now, however, it’s official; this freestyle weapon has been re-christened the YES Greats Uninc.
It’s not just for the old guard; pint-sized powerhouse Austen Sweetin is among the new generation of riders who appreciate the design of the YES Greats UnInc snowboard. That’s partly to do with the fact that it’s no noodle; to ride this, you’ve got to be prepared to give it some welly.

Rigid triax fibreglass – enhanced with carbon – make this a torsionally stiff board that will react with lightning speed, and the end-to-end stiffness is up there too. It’ll suit the bigger features, and the braver riders, although it stops short of closing the door on the improving intermediate.
The ‘CamRock’ profile has rocker sections at each end, which can be used to butter and press the piste without too much effort, and make turn initiation less twitchy too. The asymmetrical design means that there’s incredible edge hold when you want it, though, so don’t be afraid to carve up the piste between park sessions. The thinner waist plays its part too, and it stops short of each foot so you won’t get toe drag.
Now with paulownia wood in the core, the Yes Greats Uninc is also lighter than ever.
