Below are all the 2018 YES snowboards categorized by snowboard type.
The 2018 season sees all the YES boards from 2017 return to the line up, except for the YES Public – and there is one new board in the line up – the YES Libre.
All of the boards in the beginner category below have also been classified elsewhere. Typically, a board that is suitable for a beginner is also suitable for another style of riding as well.
- YES Emoticon
Jib/Street YES Boards
The Public was the only board that really fit in this category from YES but that is no longer in the line for 2018 so there isn’t anything that I would put in this category from YES anymore.

Thanks for Reading
I hope this has given you some perspective on the YES line of snowboards for 2018.
As was the case for the 2017 models, all of the 2018 models that I rode really impressed me. This is one of those companies that’s still relatively new (founded 2009) but have already reached a level that makes them one of the top brands in the industry.
And they seem to be still constantly improving and tweaking things to make their boards even better – and 2018 is no exception to that.
