PUBLIC

THE PUBLIC CONTINUES TO DELIVER THE SOLID, PLAYFUL PLATFORM RIDERS LIKE AUSTEN SWEETIN AND JUSTIN MULFORD NEED TO COME UP WITH LINES NO ONE ELSE EVEN CONSIDERS.

Requiring a neutral yet responsive and durable board, the Public was designed for terrain that was never meant to be ridden. Flat (or zero) camber keeps the board neutral enough to not get too squirrely and unpredictable. The core is milled with a mid-flex between the feet and a slightly thicker “bump” just outside the binding areas. This produces a soft overall flex that still pops ollies. The nose and tail profiles are a blended radius to flat kick that is perfect for extended nose presses.

OUTLINE

TRUE TWIN / RADIAL

A mainstay of freestyle riding. Completely symmetrical outline; the stance is centered on the effective edge, tip and tail are identical length and shape, flex is identical at both ends of the board. Radial sidecut is effective and predictable. The overall shape allows complete freedom of expression by keeping the board a neutral, yet responsive tool.

Full Poplar

CORE

FULL POPLAR

Our baseline core for tip to tail wood-core snowboard construction. Strikes a predictable balance between durability, consistent flex and light weight.

BASE MATERIALS

EXTRUDED

Just like it says. This material is formed by extrusion. It’s softer than our other two bases, which isn’t necessarily a bad thing. At the speeds many of us ride, this material is actually quicker (gets up to speed faster) than sintered when waxed correctly. You may have your own proof of this when you’re smoking by someone with a dried out “high-end” base. It also retains wax better because it’s more porous and is easy to fix with a P-Tex stick if you get scratches in it.

This year the Public is upgraded with a full tip-to-tail poplar wood core providing better pop and a more robust ride.

THE PUBLIC

Frank April is a beast. Watch Deja Vu, watch his Real Snow XGames – both this year and last – and you’ll see creativity and a commitment to line as serious as anything in the sport. Requiring a neutral yet responsive and durable board, the Public was designed for terrain that was never meant to be ridden. Flat (or zero) camber keeps the board neutral enough to not get hung up or get squirrely. The core is milled with a mid-flex between the feet and a slightly thicker “bump”, just outside the binding areas providing a soft overall flex that still pops ollies. The nose and tail profiles are a blended radius to flat kick that are perfect for extended nose presses.

2014 Yes Public
THE PUBLIC

The Public is completely redesigned this year – wide and blunt nose shape allows for stable, confident nose presses and a solid surface to (n)ollie from. Flat (or zero) camber keeps the board neutral enough to not get hung up without being too squirrely. The core profile has mid-flex with a slight increase in thickness just outside the binding area before tapering back down, creating a balance between softer overall flex and good pop.

MAN MADE, PREFERABLY.

Given a choice, the Public prefers cold steel – the wasteland of urban landscapes, homemade jib parks and a tallboy. Flatrock base profile keeps things loose, and Humps core-profiling makes for an easy ollie with a soft deck. Public space is there for your amusement – use it.
