The Yes. 420 Snowboard is your new best bud.
This thing floats like a cloud. A classic cambered pow board with a mid stiff flex, the 420 will have you riding high on top of fresh pow. Shorter boards that turn like a dream are all the rage, and Yes has been in the game long before pow surfing was legal. Let's be blunt, the Yes. 420 Snowboard is dope!

Camber – Camber is the base of snowboarding: you need to have enough edgehold to drive in and out of turns. The camber does exactly that, allowing you to drive your turns longer and release later.
Flex Rating – 7 (1 Soft - 10 Stiff)
Radial Tapered – Inspired by Steve Lis and the revolution that occurred when kneeboards influenced surfboard design. Powder is all about speed and flotation. Displacement of a board’s volume is affected by more than just length. With the 420, Yes. is able to get the stability and float normally associated with much longer boards by punching out the waist width and drastically chopping the length. For example, the 148 has the same circumference and base surface as a traditional 160, but it’s mass is located much closer to your feet resulting in more maneuverability and far less swing weight. A slight taper (12mm) helps keep the nose up without losing the tail’s ability to hold in hard-pack. Stance is only slightly set back from center of effective edge because the difference in nose and tail shovel keeps you from going over the nose.
Weightless Core – The Weightless Core strikes a critical balance between light weight and strength. Using a lower density species of Poplar in areas that are not as structured and Paulownia in the areas that are, Yes. was able to shave precious weight. This helps the board not only float, but "feel" floaty.
Sintered True – True Sintered bases are harder and more expensive than extruded, and can be faster for those that ride aggressively.
