Yes. The Basic CamRock Snowboard - 2011 BCS
The Basic CamRock Snowboard pretty much sums up what Yes is all about—a quality all-mountain freestyle ride at a price even dirtbag shred bums can afford. The CamRock hybrid profile and twin shape hook up a stable, versatile ride with tons of float for stomping deep pow landings in either direction.
- CamRock hybrid profile puts camber between your feet and rocker in the nose/tail starting at the contact points—you get fewer edge hangups and better float in deep snow, without sacrificing high-speed control
- Multiaxial fiberglass layout delivers a snappy flex with tons of pop
- Strategically-placed carbon reinforcements improve pop and reaction times
- Diamond stone-finished base reduces friction for better glide in all snow conditions

Too bad there's only a 135cm left here. I have a 155 and love it. Romain De Marchi rides the basic, so I think it's good to go for people way better than me too.
Too stiff for rails?

I'd say in a powder board size it is too stiff for rails, but in a small size it could be jibby. If you are looking for a great all mountain board to hit rails on once in a while, this is a great board, but if you plan on spending a bunch of time in the park and hitting rails, I'd go with something a little softer. For a stiffer feeling board, this board still is fairly playful.

That review below was marked as dumb for good reason. Here's a real review.
My info: 6'4", 200 lbs. 10 years riding.
Got this board in a 159, my ride-everywhere size.
The Yes Basic is a price-point park or all-mountain twin that rips. Exactly as the name of the board says, this thing is basic - no fancy shape, no crazy construction materials, a little bit on the heavier side - but if you're looking for a board on the cheap, the Basic delivers.
Coming from a Capita FK board earlier this season, I find this thing to be much poppier while maintaining that catch-free feeling with the rocker in the tips. The rockered tips also make this thing a cinch to butter around and get goofy on, albeit it's no noodle.
Took this thing backcountry on the steeps in a powdery day as well, and it performed pretty well. Yeah, you still get that leg burn, but it's a whole lot better than a full-camber board.
Only complaints that I have with it are that it's a wee bit heavy, but for a <$400 board, it's to be expected a bit. Also, the top sheet seems to scuff pretty easily, but if you're a real rider this is something easily overlooked.
TLDR; Good price-point twin; RIDE IT, FOO!
