Yes. Optimistic Snowboard · 2021

$669.95

This is a full camber board with a stiffness rating of 9/10, it's designed to charge. This trusty stead will take you anywhere you want to go with ease. It's "under bite" technology makes initiating turns effortless and it's shorter tail reduces the swing weight making this board VERY responsive for how stiff it is.

Scary, fast, and seriously powerful! The YES Optimistic can be ridden shorter than normal thanks to its extra width and is one stiff monster for charging through whatever you can throw at it! Steeps and pow be warned!!! 9/10 flex. Shorter tail for less swing weight - this stick can shred!

This board is a charger! The stiff flex and sintered base means it rips while holding an edge (underbite edges are excellent in ice as well). The mellow camber profile and reduced volume tail give it pow performance, turning response, and directional prowess!

This board is highly sought after by women who love to ride big lines. A stiffer, directional deck that is meant for riding big mountains and slaying deep powder. Hybrid camber gives you that control when riding fast and hard, yet still adds the float you want in the deep stuff.
