Capita Snowboards 2011-2012

15 Feb, 2011


In the past 11 years of building, designing and devouring snowboards, Capita has created a brand that sticks out from the masses. They’ve updated their technology over the years but also know a good thing when they have it and continue offer the models that work.  Their team riders have made names for themselves, winning awards and video parts on Capita boards.

For 2012, Capita added a new board with the Totally Fkn’ Awesome which has freeride FK and Tj Scheider’s pro model the mid life zero becomes zero camber.  They continue to build a mix of options from the traditional camber to the pow FK to freeride FK to zero camber to freestyle and urban FK.  There are options for every rider in every price range.

    They could be more original with model name NAS … copy from Lib Tech ski NAS = Narrow Ass Snowboard…. no revolution from Capita here at all 😉

  2. February 16, 2011

    Francis, that’s intentional. They are poking fun at Lib 🙂

    Hey Shay no pics of ultrafear? Wondering what the base looks like, also wondering about any changes?

    Hey Shay, could you do a review on next years mid life? I’m really interesting in how the zero camber handles on jumps.

    hy would you please find a picture of the base of the new black snowboard of death.
    also is it still cam-rock?

  6. February 17, 2011

    David, ultrafear is a late release every year so it wasn’t at SIA and not in the catalog. Per tradition, it’ll be all the graphics together on one board.

    Alex, I’ll try to ride the mid life for you!

    Grant, It’s the white Capita skull similiar to this year’s BSOD. Also Capita isn’t cam-rock (that’s YES/Nidecker) but it is freeride FK just like this year’s BSOD.

  9. February 26, 2011

    Lem, that’s what the 2012 catalog says.

    Lee, fixed that, the biggest size is 157. Just added the other sizes to it!

    heyo.
    Torn between sizes…looking for a park board and an all mtn board.
    @ 5″11 and 175lbs should I get
    153 park / 157 all mtn
    155 park / 159 all mtn
    I’m used to shorter boards and like the playfulness, but nervous about going to short for jumps. would a 153 ultra suffice on jumps?

    Really wish the stairmaster was a mens park board….

    Nas = Normal Ass Snowboard
    hahahahahah

  17. May 08, 2011

    Thanks Johan!

    Matthew, depends on you if you are comfortable riding a smaller board then you’d just have to adjust to jumping on it. It’ll be easier to maneuver and more playful. I think you’d be fine on a 153 for park but really up to you.

    Daniel, it is a park board.

    Zac, totally 🙂

    Indoor Survival nails the coffin of Lib Banana. After riding a season on Indoor, my old Skate Banana is a wall ornament now. It gives better edge hold, carving and pop for less bucks. And looks much much better.

    Darko Indoor Survival better edge hold ?
    Do you know that magna traction need maintenance too ? Less but still need to sharp a bit… and you will see that Banana BTX will hold back so much…
