No, not the history of snowboards — history on snowboards. These Great Dudes Of History Snowboards ($400) by YES feature the visages of some of modern history's most noteworthy dudes, including Lincoln, Martin Luther King, Jr., Einstein, Haile Selassie, John Lennon, and JFK, while offering plenty of performance thanks to a power wood core, an asymmetrical shape, and a stone and diamond structured base for maximum glide and durability.
