Excelling everywhere from park jumps to open bowls above treeline, the Yes Basic Wide Snowboard delivers a snappy feel, reliable edge hold, and solid strength at a shockingly affordable price. This particular version is wider, accommodating riders with larger feet looking to conquer everything on the mountain with a freestyle perspective. Don't just take our word for it, the Basic is a favorite among die-hard riders seeking an affordable board to confidently handle anything the mountain throws their way.
The Basic's true twin shape keeps you perfectly balanced for freestyle riding, working nicely with the CamRock profile for a responsive, poppy feel. Speaking of CamRock, this profile places camber along the board's effective edge for locked-in turns and plentiful snap off kickers and natural hits. Just after the binding inserts, the board transitions to rocker at the tip and tail. Rocker eliminates the aggressive bite of camber, making it ideal for everyone from first-time beginners all the way up to advanced freestyle riders seeking a catch-free and playful board.
A striking innovation found on the Basic is Yes' signature UnderBite edges. These edges are pulled in along the binding zones, rather than bumped out like much of the competition. This redistributes edge pressure where it's essential for turning (such as tip and tail contacts, center between bindings) for a board that carves well, even in less-than-ideal conditions like hardpack and ice.

One of my favorites
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
The Yes. Basic is one of my favorite snowboards to date. It's the perfect flex and profile for literally anything you want to do, from the park to the peak - and for $399 retail it's one of the most reasonably priced snowboards for the performance. I purchased one several years ago, and the base looks like it's been through 'nam, but I still continue to ride it. The extruded base doesn't hold wax as well and takes some extra work to stay going fast, but it makes up for it by being super easy to repair; just drop some p-tex, scrape, and go. The Camrock profile is the perfect blend of pop, power, forgiveness, and float. With a camber section in between the inserts, you have the power of a traditional camber board, but the rocker on the tip and tail help you stay afloat in the deep stuff and add some forgiveness. This is a perfect board from beginners to the pros. You won't be let down on this classic from the Yes. line!
