Released January, 2009
The Pros:Hard bottom is better than most at this point for jibs and rails. Responsive, poppy feel makes landings easier for beginners. Performs above average in freestyle park settings than typical entry-level boards.
The Cons:Graphics are somewhat bland compared to some of Forum's other basic boards. Nose and tail regions seem prone to chipping or damage from rocks or other hard objects.
The Forum Youngblood is an affordable all-around snowboard featuring the original Gnar Core, made entirely out of high-grade Hunter S. Aspen and lightweight for a more snappy and responsive ride. It’s laced with Grainbelt technology, which adds the critical strength needed for long-term use.

Included also are biaxial laminates with strands that crosscross at a 90-degree angle, a standard configuration that adds to the smoothness, resulting in a more forgiving and easy ride. Signature to the Youngblood is its Freebase base, which features a slick material that waxes easy for speed. Additional features include an FGel Sidewall that dampens the board during asphalt landings; beveled edges; and a Swingers Club certification that means the Youngblood can spin quicker due to shavings in weight.
