A lunch date with Yobeat
15 Aug, 2009
Yobeat is back and stronger than ever, their online presence makes pros squirm in their seats and the industry wonder with amazement. The quote from Almost Famous, “be honest and unmerciful” reminds me of Yobeat who in snowboarding does just that. They bring out the honesty, the fun and the ability to not take snowboarding too seriously.
Located in Portland, Oregon you could drive by Yobeat without ever knowing it. They are located above a Vegan bakery that helps mask the smell of honesty that comes out from the office daily.
I visited the office on Wednesday for a lunchtime rendevous to check out the office and see what goes on at Yobeat. Jared Sourney and Brooke Geery were hard at work, cranking out the latest articles/info on snowboarding.

Inside Yobeat is even a waiting area which is stocked with magazines and with vegan coffee downstairs it’s perfect for relaxation.

Brooke told me that down the road was amazing $1 corndogs and $1 PBR’s so we headed there for lunch and met up with some Dew Tour bmx pros in town. The corndogs and tallboys were awesome at lunch, definitely a highlight for food during the trip.

Thanks to Yobeat for taking some time to let me check out the office!
