    Is the “Hybrid FK” on the DOA board a new camber profile for Capita? Is it their version of Gullwing (Nitro)/MtnPop (Rome) or more like the Freeride FK on the BSOD?

    New camber for them. I can’t remember exactly how it goes. No death bump on it though. Maybe flat between bindings,camber under then fk after that. Shay will confirm after she gets done with her revelry at Revelstoke.

    DBX board is the nicer graphic in my opinion ;) will be hard to decide against Lib T.Rice, Gnu Rider Choices or even the new Flow Rush for 2013

    To confirm: new camber profile – Hybrid FK is full camber from 5 cms outside of each insert with a flat section in the tip and tail before a very short rocker FK. It rides nice and feels like a full running length but had stayed afloat on some of the softer stuff. I personally like the FreeRide though on my tfka better
